So in January we are moving from south ga to west Texas 1400 miles. It’s for work. First time I’ve towed anything this big that far. Wishing I had the diesel in my f250 but the 6.2 is comfortable at 60 ish. Any suggestions on things to prepare me is appreciated.
8 MPG isn't bad at all, I get 10. Mileage isn't the only factor that affects trailer tires. Their age is a major factor. The rubber dries out, most trailer tires rot out before they wear out. End result, running 60 ish will net you good MPG, and not over stress the tires (or you). One good thing about traveling in the winter is it's cooler, running 75 MPH+ in 90 degree heat will just about guarantee a tire failure.

Storms here in AZ weren't nearly as bad as predicted. We had about 1-4" of rain around PHX. Flag had =less= snow overall, than Prescott did, 2k' lower. We are predicted to have another storm later this week, though.
