well I took it out camping this last weekend.  Truck was able to pull it fine up i-70 above 11000' altitude hold 65 mph which was nice.  I did have to gear down to 2nd locked at 45 to climb from silverthorn to eisenhower tunnel,  No big deal there.  

 

Managed to get 13 mpg heading up which is A-ok by me.. should be closer to 15-16 on flat ground.

 

stayed dry in the camper,  nice to have a full bed.    truck drove 10x better compared to having the camper in the bed.

Have you ever taken Loveland pass? It's not that bad of a climb at all and much better scenery than the tunnel. Williams fork is a cool area!
