35.2 from a 2008 92bhp diesel hauling a well laden Elddis Cyclone 17ft up the dreaded A9 from central Scotland to Aviemore.
Fitted an old Bulldog stabiliser which almost eradicated the "Bucking Bronco" effect.
On return trip used cruise control which was far too slow in responding to inclines,and speed dropped, otherwise ok.

I was gettnig high 30s on my C4GP 2.0HDi with my Coachman 2 berth. I've just bought a new(er) caravan (1994 Lunar Planet Saturn 5 berth) which is a bit heavier. I've only towed it to where I have it stored (a friend's house) when I picked it up so I don't know what I'll be getting until we go on our first outing.

Got it down to 12.2mpg once but that was hoofing it in 3rd gear uphill on the M62 coming out of Brighouse with a "wee" bit more weight than it should have had behind it
That bit of motorway is a drag but pales into insignificance to the long haul eastward up out of Milnrow, responsible for many a lorry catching fire from overheating
