good morning and welcome to the forum:
i have an '04 georgetown "A"/ 8.1 w/h chassis and 7.5-8.75mpg is the best mpg i've gotten with it. i had a fleetwood ltd-1988 w/460 ford power and that one got about the same as the newer moho. it was much noisier tho. as long as the floor plan fits your needs - that's the most important factor. if it's gas 9mpg will be about tops with any system. a diesel is better-but more $'s upfront.
again welcome.

We have a 2005 37DB on a workhorse W24 chassis. We are full-timers and are fully loaded. We tow a 4000 lb. toad. I drive a fairly consistent 62-64 mph, unless climbing steep hills. Our overall gas mileage is right around 7 mpg.

A word of caution if you are looking at a 37DB. The cargo carrying capacity isn't very high if it's on a W22 chassis. The W24 and the FRED are a lot better. Check it out and make sure it will meet your needs.

The 37DB is a great floorplan. We are very happy with it. It was very popular, but it has been replaced with 3 and 4 slide floorplans.

I have a 32' Allegro Fred and get 10-11 mpg. Plenty of ccc and with two slides plenty of room for wife and myself.

Doodles: If your looking for a A-Bay, take a look at the new 36' Freds. I walked through one today and was very impressed with what I saw. 4 slides, half bath in rear, washer/dryer in this case, tag axel, outside TV plus more all for $136K plus. If i'd had the coins, might have tried to dicker with the sale's person but will just drool for the time being.

martyt , whom did you speak with . I need the salesperson name. I called and the best they would do is $149,448.00 with no trades in that is only 19 % off MSRP. I offer them 23 % off to $141,957.
