Looks good! Yeah, depending on how much stuff she has it might take quite a few trips.

That was my third this month, this one got all the big stuff back though. Going up on Wednesday for the last one and her graduation. At 400 miles round trip each time, gas has been raping me recently.

Truck pulled great though, thing was like pulling a aerodynamic brick though.

I'll trade a few short trips like that with a small trailer, if you want to haul my camper back to Oregon over the mountains (2500 miles up to 8600ft) while also pulling all of my belongings in a 6x12 trailer... Yeah?

I think the average was 14.5 there and back. Took almost exactly a whole tank, gas needle was almost on E when I pulled back into my driveway. Trailer was packed full but the stuff wasn't very heavy, didn't really notice a difference with loaded and unloaded.
