    Dang some of you are getting as good as my 95 Civic used to get, and better than the advertised mpg for a first gen!

    My 01 gets close to 30 mpgs all day everyday.










    But I drive downhill both ways.

    Same here: winch, bumper, sliders, skids, camper that creates a huge amount of wind resistance gets me around 14mpg.
    At least I have the 2nd gas tank so I can carry 35 gallons of gas.
    My daily driver gets 35mpg and my motorcycle gets 47mpg.
    Between all three I average about 30mpg.

    Dude I just noticed your pic and seen the canopy on the back of your truck. Did you buy that or build it yourself? Either way, pretty cool. I’ve been wanting to do a flatbed with a hard shell canopy. And honestly 14mpg doesn’t sound bad considering the amount of weight you have on the truck. My 3.4 double cab with 33s was getting 16-17 and my other 3.4 access cab on 31s gets around 18-20 with arb, rock sliders, and rear bumper. I’d say you’re doing good with a camper.

    That how I look at it too. For a vehicle today 14 sucks. But for a camper it’s amazing!

    I’ve been building it for about a year now. The first 5 months was a race to get it ready enough to go to Baja for 2 weeks last November.

    I’ve been working the interior lately. After that all that’s really left is finishing the roof with a maxxair fan, skylight, light, some USB ports and the tent for the pop top.

    The nice thing about a flat bed with a canopy is you can put that canopy on anything flat. My camper will only fit a 1st gen access cab.

    You can see more on my build thread. The camper starts in page 14.
