Fuel Mileage ??????

There are so many different driving habits and different roads, however we just returned from Arizona running I-10, 20,30, and I-40. We have a Chevy Kodiak with a Chariot Vans Inc. upgraded with the Aluminum hauler bed and our total weight including the Truck and 5th wheel is 27,620 lbs. We ran 68 mph on cruise control and got 10 mpg. We have 14,000 miles on the Kodiak. Just using the SWAG method I believe we get a solid 9 to 12 mph. I don't normaly check fuel mileage, since we got our first 1 ton GMC 3500. Every time I would tell someone the mileage I was getting, their answer was they always were getting a lot better mileage. So I didn't check the mileage anymore. Good Luck....GBY.....
