Pops, you and I have the same TT. I am getting between 8 to 10 mpg. And 10 when I am dead flat for a ways. If I were to average I would say like 8.5 mpg. So you are not doing anything wrong. The air bags have helped me a lot as well. Much better ride I must say.

It's been awhile but if I remember correctly, I went through like a 180 mile stretch between Jackson, Wyoming and Evanston, Wyoming where I only ran across something like 3 podunk gas stations that were closed on weekends before finally reaching an open gas station in Evanston. Then I filled up something like 27.8 gallons into my 28 gallon tank, and I felt really stupid for not topping off every chance I had. Someone who's been through there probably knows what I mean and could correct me if I'm wrong, but it was a nervous situation because if it hadn't been for the last mile being a good strong downhill stretch I probably would've ran dry on gas about a good 1/2 mile before reaching the gas station. That was one time that I was wishing I had a Toy Hauler with some gas cans in it. -lol

I'm just sayin...

If I plan a trip over 100 miles, regardless whether or not I'm towing/hauling, I bring some extra fuel.

Ya never know... Zombie apocalypse and all that.

Thankfully I've never actually needed to use my reserve fuel. But there was once that I sure was happy that I had it.

Well, there's the difference, you went with the primo luxury version. That Marble Hot Tub, Sauna, 70" TV, and Granite Flooring has to weigh quite a bit. Did they include a Maid Staff and Butler with it too?

Not sure if this counts as an answer but my Armada has a 6" Lift on 35's. I'm not terribly happy with the MPG so my next tires will be back down to 33's. 4" blocks on the rear of a Titan shouldn't be much different. The only real catch I've found is an added expense of needing Drop Shanks, I have a 6" Drop Shank for my WD Hitch and a 6" 10k-lbs Drop Shank with a 7500-lbs 2" ball for other trailers.

Towing a Camper

I am running a PC 6" lift, on the metric equivalent of 35" tires. (315 i think). And if I remember correctly it has 3" blocks in the back. I usually don't get much better than 13ish mpg not towing. I should prepared for 7-8 I think.

Most 6" Bracket Lifts come with 4" blocks for the rear. But yea, that sounds about right for a 6,000-lbs or more trailer. With 33" A/T's I was getting 8-11 mpg while towing.
