I know the question has come up many times about whether a Gas or Diesel Engine is better for Hauling A truck camper. This post is not about that.
My purpose here is to share our 4100+ mile trip, with our truck and camper, so that those who may be considering or wondering what a Ford V10 gets for mileage, will have some real data.
I am attaching a Word document that has all the information.
Just as an aside, we weighed 11,425 pounds leaving Penticton BC, due to fact that we acquired a rollover sofa to replace our dinette, and still had the dinette to bring home. We got a little heavier after leaving Washington, because the nice folks at Torklift, replaced my 4 receivers, and let me keep the old ones to boot. We did make it home safely, and had a great trip. Roberta and I commented the highlights were the great people we met, and the places we saw.

Great info. I have about the same kind of setup and will be doing a long trip next year, Boise - Glacier National Monument - WI - IL - CO - SD - Boise, and will use your stats in my own planning of trip.
Again Great Stats, Robert.
