    Hello, my wife and I took delivery of a Boondock Lite (2020j in early June.  In anticipation of purchasing a camper, last year we purchased a Jeep GC Limited with trailer tow, with v6.  
    At this point we still have the spare tucked up in the rear of the camper so it has a tongue weight of about 144lbs.  I would be interested to know what you get towing?

    At times we have gotten 15 or 16, but one trip we got under 13.  Most of the trips I have travelled about 63 mph, but for part of the low gas mileage trip was at 67.  The gas mileage dropped later when we hit the storm, and were at 62 or less.  About 25% of the mileage on that low gas miles trip was at 55 or less.  I am wondering if a heavier tongue weight would help with mileage.  The Jeep has the trailer sway control, and my theory is that on that one low mpg part of which was with rain and heavy winds, the  Jeep sway control of adjusting tire speed kicked in and reduced mpg.
    Thanks.
