So I have only had my truck for a few weeks. 2015 1500 crew

Last weekend we took our first trip towing our 17foot Casita camper. about 3500 pounds.

The route was pretty hilly and one 20 mile sections of small very steep driving up and down.

Truck performed amazingly well. The entire trip was about 400 miles and the computer showed 22.5 MPG.

I kept it at about 65 on the highway and used the tow haul mode. ( though not really sure what it does anyway)

I was hoping I would get close to 20 and would have expected much less on this route. My old V8 ram 5.9L would get about 11 on the same route.

Just thought I would share here.

Next time I am hooked up I will post a photo of the set up.

I would say that a 50% increase in mileage is worth it !

Great story.

I regularly get over 20 mpg, fill up method, and 21-22+ mpg on the computer towing my 3,500-4,000 lb bass boat. It's mostly flat highway the entire way with a slight, maybe 5-10 mph tail wind on the way back.
