We haven't used our new truck (2008 Ford F350 6.4 Diesel) yet with our camper on so we don't know really what kind of mileage we will be getting. I know around town we get around 16 mpg without the camper.

What do you get for mileage and what do you drive? Also, do you find if you keep at a certain speed you get better mileage?

I averaged almost 12.5 mpg with a 43' M/H and a 525 hp cummins for last winters winter excursion running I-95 and the Florida Tpke.  All flat land running at 55-58 mph not lugging the engine carrying only about 20 gallons of water and no TOAD.  Year before last in Western PA, and then on to the White Mountains in NH was getting anywhere between 6.8 and 9 mpg still only about 20 gallons of water and pulling a TOAD.  I found slowing down really helps my wallet and trying to stay in my engines torque band helps alot.

About 9-10 Ford F350 DRW CC Carrying an Arctic Fox 990 weighing roughly 3800-4000 lbs.  First Diesel I have owned but folks keep telling me the MPG will improve the more miles you put on it Huh?

I get around 7.5 - 8 mpg regularly, I lost roughly a mile per gallon when I changed up to the current tires I have.  Hoping when I finish the axle conversion, and I go back to the stock tire size this will improve.

03' 7.3L Diesel F350 with a 4000lb Northland camper gets me 11.5mpg on the round trip from Seattle to Montana. That includes 3 major passes and one big hill (Vantage) and the 17 mile dirt road climb to the cabin. Highway speeds averaging 72-75mph.

Same setup PLUS the 18ft enclosed trailer at 7500lbs drops me down to 10.5 mpg. Highway speeds closer to 70mph. Not too bad for 20k gross combined weight and the profile of a large brick.
