    Finally, good times ahead

    Getting out and on the road for one last trip before kids start school again. It's nothing super heavy, nor fancy, but it does the job for shelter!

    On a side note, this tow should run through at least two tanks on a GDE flashed ECU and hopefully providing some more info for those on the fence regarding the tune.

    Hah, no kidding! It's a rental thankfully, but the largest thing that was available.

    Put a mattress in the bed & you'll have a place to sleep! That is a small one, but it will keep the rain out! Have a blast

    Managed to pull a 16.16 mpg average r/t over just a hair under 1300 miles. 14.06mpg getting there, 18.25 coming back. Best tank, 19.04, worst 12.87.

    Highest temps - oil 252, coolant 228, trans was 192 for a brief stint.

    Not too shabby considering the amount of uphill and a brutal 30-40 mph headwind (and tailwind coming back) in the Wyoming flats (that'd be the worst and best tank numbers). The numbers may not seem stellar, but keep in mind there are no flat roads around my neck of the woods, and the highway speeds are higher. Lots of mountains, passes, and all the ups and downs that come with them.

    That's actually a nice small trailer. They have some with outdoor kitchens that I have seen all under 3k dry.
