I just got done towing this on Friday. It was around roughly 5k. You can see the truck hardly squatted. Truck handled it fine, stopped it well had plenty of torque on take off, getting up to highway speeds wasn't the quickest, but it managed and I didn't feel like it was struggling. Averaged about 17mpg with about 70% city, was about 26-28 unloaded and around 19-22 loaded on the highway at 60mph. Just wished I had tow mirrors for when I was backing up with being a narrower truck. But father in law has an eco diesel and hauls about 6k pretty much all over the country and loves his. Best he has gotten was 34 mpg with it.
