6.2L Towing mpg, 6k travel trailer?

Anyone tow about 6,000 pound travel trailer with a 6.2?
Just curious what the MPG was while towing.
It's not a lot of weight but it isn't very aerodynamic .

1986 F250,Regular cab,XL,4X4,6.9, 4 speed,

omgosh are you serious only 4mpg pulling 15.5K that's horrific!!!!

I pulled 10K with a 351 Windsor HO with a 4bbl and a C6 trannie in my 85 F150 - yes I know it was way too much weight but I did it all the time.

I would get 6.5 to 7.5 with it running 65 to 70 mph.

my 6.0 p/s gets 12 to 13 pulling that kind of weight if I roll through the hills vs hammering on it.

If I hammer it 9 to 10
