    Hmmmm, 6,000 lb TT + 4000 lb Jeep is still under the Avalanche's tow rating. May have to look into this.


    New to us TV 2003 Chevy Avalanche 2500, 8.1l 340hp 440 ft-lbs torque, 4.10 gears 12,000 lb tow rating

    I am aware that the gas mileage with the 8.1l will make my Jeep look like an economy car [8D]

    I have a ford f250 with the v10 and driving stop and go traffic around post and town around here I average 9 mpg, if I drive hwy and keep it around 65 I can see about 12.5 mpg. Towing seems to be the same, as my pups weight is only a little over 3k.

    We averaged almost 9 mpg towing the trailer home, it did have a full water tank and hills didn't bother it.

    We already had a couple of trips booked we were planing on camping with our popup but once we got home with our NTU Fun Finder we booked a few more trips.

    We currently have the following booked:

    July 18-21 Philadelphia/West Chester KOA (PA)
    August 8-13 Twin Grove Campground (PA)
    August 30-September 2 Gifford Pinchot State Park (PA)
    September 19-22 Big Meadow Campground Shenandoah National Park (VA)
    October 11-14 Laurel Hill State Park (PA)

    Looking forward to a fun Summer and Fall of camping.
