Mileage to expect

We have 2000 Ford Ranger 4.0 6 cyl carrying a Starcraft slide in with pop up -- because my wife has severe arthritis, it is really hard for her to navigate with this set up. We are very satisfied with the gas mileage that we have been getting -- around 16 mpg.
We've been looking at HI LO's, Shadow Cruiser, Trail Lite, Road Runner, etc. Is there anyone who can give me a realistic estimate on what kind of gas mileage we can expect pulling with our smaller truck towing a hardside trailer that is around 17 - 18 feet long?
Any advice or comments would be appreciated.

Mileage to expect

That's a small truck, and a small engine. Make sure that anything you choose is well under the towing capacity of your truck.
