Tow vehicle and mileage


New Member
Hi all,

This is my first post ever, on this site or anywhere, so bear with me if you don't get a reply - I'll be figuring this out as I do it.

We are thinking of buying a 26 (exterior length) Jayco that weighs 5200 with water and propane and has a limit of about 7000, when loaded. We will be buying a USED vehicle to pull it. We're thinking full sized SUV (though I'm reading that it has to be a fairly big one- like a 5.4 liter or larger and a V8 or "hemi"- whatever that is) or a truck.

Here is the question- What would you suggest and does anyone actually have about the same sized camper who could let us know what you pull it with and some info on your gas mileage. thanks, :) new RVer
