The P/O told me he got as good as 12mpg and it sounds like he ran it hard.
I can't wait to find out but it should pull the camper easily.

It will be put to work pulling other things eventually.

Heavy duty components are good, with my pickup once I lost the trailer wire connection coming down a steep hill. I was able to keep my speed under control but there was no way I could stop.
That was a white knuckle situation, with the big truck I wouldn't even worry.
It can handle a fair bit more cargo than what the camper weighs.
