New 2016 21 in Los Angeles!

Hi Everyone,
I just returned from a 6 day round trip to Chilliwack to pick up our new 21. What a pleasant surprise to find the trailer exceeded my expectations. Everything worked perfectly on the way down and towing was a breeze. I have a heavy duty GMC diesel that averaged 15 mpg on the way back with fuel at $1.79 to boot. Anyone interested in viewing our trailer in the Los Angeles/Southern California area just let me know. Good times ahead! Woo Hoo!

T.V. Mileage...

Mileage heading up to Chilliwack unloaded was 21.89 at 65mph on cruise. Heading back to Los Angeles loaded was 14.73 to 15.45 give or take at 60mph. My GMC diesel has never averaged less than 18.5 in daily driving, it's well matched for the 21. It's an old truck but dead nuts reliable and efficient.
