To get this thread back on track (sorta since neither of my trailers now are completely fiberglass) I have a Land Rover Defender that tows an Eriba Puck and a Land Rover LR3 that tows an Eriba Triton.





I've owned a Boler and a U-Haul that I towed with the Defender - mileage varied widely due to velocity and hills since it has the aerodynamic qualities of a barn. Anything over 60 mph just burned more fuel.

I find it interesting that no one who has a Chevy TV has posted.

Tow Vehicle: 1996 Chevy Suburban 4X4 (Retired November 2014- 285,000 mi)
5.7 L V8
Trailer: 13' Trillium
Towing MPG: 12
Highway MPG: 15

New TV 2006 Chevy Trailblazer 4X4 - 4.2L I6
Haven't had a chance to get out with the new TV, but I hope the MPG is better.

Thanks for the list Norm. I find it very informative.
