I'm pretty heavy with ours. I've never weighed it all hooked up but, I'm thinking I'm well above 16k. I've had my current setup for just over a year now and the very best I can do, even without a lot of hills is 9.5 and with hills, it drops down to about just above 8. With that said, I've seriously been researching around, to see if it might worth it, to go in a different direction.
Thanks for your input and safe travels........
Most of all, have fun
and enjoy!

Just curious what kind of fuel mileage you get with your set up?


We got one of the last remaining 18's left on the lot and it was brand new. We have only had it about a month and a half and it only has like 1,800 miles on it so it's still not broken in even. Right now I get about 13.9 MPG, but expect that to drop just a little, not much but a little.
We have only had the 5er for a couple weeks so haven't town enough to get a good calculation while towing, but I expect it will be a little lower, again not much, because our rig is lite and the truck doesn't even have to work to pull it, but it will drop some, thinking around 10 or 12 or so. I wanted the max payload capacity I could get with a DRW, Crew Cab, Long Bed, and so ended up with almost 6K (5,704).

How do you make out with that heavy Mobile Suits (those are very nice)?

Congrats. Great rig....especially the truck.
Your hitch is really something to be proud of, too. I'd NEVER have a rigid fifth wheel hitch no matter what brand.
Safe travels.

Since I see several members trying to post pictures directly from their computer - which does not work, I am posting this for their benefit and others who are tempted to try it without success.

If you will follow these directions exactly, it is very easy to post pictures on our forums. One of our moderators, 1492, developed this photo posting app to post your pictures. It works for other internet sites also. There is no need to have a separate hosting site for your pictures in order to use it.

It is very simple to use.
1. Upload your picture from your computer to the app.
2. Copy the resulting URL.
3. Paste that URL into your post without ANY changes. No additions or deletions.
Your picture will then appear in your post and be properly sized for use on our forums.[emoticon]
