You might want to check the maximum speed for your trailer tires. Most trailer tires are rated for maximum 65 mph.
Thanks Byron, you are right. When I ordered the 4" lift on the trailer, I also upgraded to 15" tires and wheels.

Do you have a link to a web site for your trailer? I looked but could not find any info on a Oliver.
Thanks,
Rob

Trailer: 2002 17 ft Casita Spirit Deluxe
Posts: 106
Looks like a pretty good cross-sampling already here, so won't post what I get since it is right in line with others. Doesn't seem to matter what the tow vehicle is - the end results are about the same. I do think wind resistance is the main factor, weight coming in a close second. Reminiscing about a stick built trailer we once had - got a dismal 8 mpg average. The streamlined shape of most fiberglass trailers no doubt contribute to a significant fuel cost savings. I get a little envious when I see someone posting that they get 18 or 20 mpg, until I look at their trailer description, which is a 13 footer. lol !! It is my fault for sure, deciding to buy one of those 17 ft. gas hoggers !! Don
