New from Lafayette, LA Passport Elite 23RBS

I have never owned a travel trailer but plan on purchasing one in 6 months.

Welcome to the forums!
You have come to the right place for lots of answers and information. What are you going to use as a tow vehicle?

Thanks for replying to my 1st post!

We will be towing the passport elite 23RBS with a 2013 xLT F-150 Eco boost with a 3:15 axel. Right now we are getting approx 18 mpg not towing anything. Do you know approx how many mpg's we can expect towing this travel trailer that weighs about 4560 pounds?

And yes we have been having lots of rain! Been raining everyday now for a couple of weeks. However the rain is a welcome relief from the high temperatures we are experiencing this time of the year. Looking forward to around September 20 as that is when we will finally be out of the upper 90's.

.
Your mileage towing will depend upon a number of factors: speed, type of terrain, wind, the method of calculation (hand vs readout) to name a few but I am guessing that you might expect approximately 12 mpg.

Welcome to the forum and I hope you have many enjoyable and safe trips in your RV of the future.
