10 mpg. unacceptable

I have an aluminum cargo trailer 14'x7' v nose single axle, weighs about 2000# that I converted into a camper. I pull it with a chevy traverse. I've had it for a couple years and get 10 mpg. Now I tried vortex generators which didn't improve gas mileage but they did make it more stable. So I put a tail on the trailer. I haven't tried it out yet but I'd sure like to hear any thoughts, suggestions or criticism.

Thanks, I tried to get a picture but the file is too big, any suggestions?

Stink, you would have much better success by copying this post and starting a new thread in Ecomodding Central or possibly the Aerodynamics section

Also, to get a picture uploaded onto EM, use a photo hosting site such as Photobucket, PostImage or onto your EM profile. Then get the direct link from said site, copy and paste link into the Add Pic dialog box and done!

If you have more questions, don't hesistate to ask me or one of the other moderators, Daox and MetroMPG, and we will try and help the best we can

Thank you

Hey, thanks for the reply. You should understand that I'm a 60 year old guy, I'm doing this on my iPad, I don't know what a photobucket is,but I looked around on your site and it got me thinking, so I modified my trailer and would like to get a picture (which is worth a thousand words) out and get some opinions.

I"ll see what I can do

Thank you.

Thank you for explaining yourself sir. How about this - send me the picture in email. I will upload it for you later today after work. All I ask is to start a new thread in the aerodynamics section.

I'm PM'ing my email address to you now.

You're welcome sir!

Since no one has bothered to reply yet, I will. It has been proven to NOT make any difference in fuel economy.

The modification that has been proven to make the largest improvement in fuel economy is "adjusting the nut behind the steering wheel".
