I am afraid to ask, what was the fuel mileage pulling that trailer?

Looks a lot better with the tint! Being that over half the tundras I see look awkward and goofy... This one looks like a BAMF!

Keep in mind this is a 10+ old 24' enclosed so it's heavier than Modern ones.
(Not mine, it's borrowed for this road trip, we plan to buy our own in 2013)



I'm getting 9-10 empty and around 7-8 w/ the 72 inside



*72 Weighs around 3200, Guessing Trailer is about same,
we plan to buy Aluminum Open style that's around 1300.



But, for just 3-5 shows a year, I will survive cause
I didn't want a Truck "Specifically for Hauling" like
my Dually was, I wanted one to be a Daily Driver.

That's why I will never use a gasser for a hauler or DD...

I bought this trailer in 2008 and it weighs like 3800 empty... Loaded with all the equipment I never got less than 15mpg's towing...

The truck on it's own would get 24-25 on the highway on it's own going the speed limit... Well 63-67. Anything more it would take more.

Yeah I'd a bought a Diesel 2 if I hauled on a Regular basis.

Once a year 2 a show 6 hours away didn't push me 2 one.

I did not care to have a Non Gasser for everyday driving.
