Thanks

anytime you add weight to the problem your mileage will suffer. as to how much, all depends on engine size, tire size and how much you have your foot on the gas...my parents had a bus and if i remember correctly, to me, it didn't get that great of gas mileage...16 or 18 on the highway ???

Hi James
Thanks. I have just bought a tent, I am off on a trip with my Mexican wife in the first two weeks of April. We are heading from Guadalajara to Acapulco then back up the coast. But who knows,after that, a baja.
