I would hate to get rid of my 2018 Ram 2500 diesel to pull a 2000 lb trailer, 342 axle ratio. The truck gets over 25 mpg empty at 60mph with no wind or hills. We found the 32 5th wheel to be cumbersome in tight turns on dirt roads and the overall driving experience through towns and forest campgrounds and lucky to get 12 average mpg doing that. Gas being what it is, we don't want to give up camping. Any guess what our mpg would be under ideal conditions with the diesel? Granted steep hills and headwinds will make a difference, but I'm thinking the low profile and light weight would yield close to twenty mpg with a low of 15. Your thoughts?
