I only got about 11 mpg .. If I can get 14 mpg towing the same trailer with the terrain I'll be thrilled.. I wish the terrain had a larger gas tank. 15.6 gallons isn't much when towing a 2,200 lb. loaded trailer. I bought the dometic mirrors that trailerhauler recommended and they fit great and will not scratch my chrome mirror covers as the clip on to the bottom of the mirror housing.. I bought 17" wheels and bridgestone blizzak ws80 tires for winter as the 19" OEM wheels and hankook all season tires just won't cut it in the snow. Wish me luck.
Which wheels and tire size did you get...?

THANKS I'm thinking the taller sidewall will provide a smoother ride, esp in the winter
