That looks to be an awfully clean and straight old Ford! Excellent truck, stout and simple. Late models worry me for trips out into nowhere because there are too many things that can put their lights out. On that Ford, if you have a problem you can see it and probably fix it. But if all the running gear is fresh, you most likely WON'T have a problem, regardless of what the Ford/Chevy trash talkers say.
But - having owned several similar Fords and Chevys, I'm thinking that 13 MPG is "optimistic" and 10 MPG with a camper and all loaded heavy isn't likely. I usually got about 7 MPG on the BM trip and maybe 10 MPG empty.
