As far as mileage goes, so far, it has only been about a 5 mile difference.
Hubby uses the cruise, but until I can feel like I am in control, it will have to wait. I need longer legs. Lol
I have heard this elsewhere. Somehow sprinter-based motorhome buyers are getting bare van mileage (22?) confused with what a fully laden RV conversion might get (maybe 14-15?) I did a calc for a group and over 5K miles a year the difference was less than a hundred a month - and some of the RV parks here cost darn near that much for one night!

I'm sure you're enjoying the new coach.

i just looked at a 33aa yesterday and really like the floorplan. I would of course want some modifications to the way dealers order them, but over on the tiffin network there is a lot of discussion about how people are ordering them with options not presented. Like different seats, heavier rear end brakes and shocks, things like this.

Through all of my researching, for state park lovers, this is a great buy for the money.

Plasma800, so glad to hear folks think of these in a positive way. We really like our floorplan. We did change out the seats, had a slider tray added, all the extras, and a traveler satellite dish.

I agree with others on the floorplan and chassis fit. I test drove a RED 34 - 2012 model a couple of years ago and liked it and the price. However at that time I came away thinking it did not have the interior finish I wanted. Little things like plastic toilet and sinks instead of ceramic and no dual pane windows. Have these been changed on later models or can they be special build items from the factory? If so, maybe we need to take another look.

Unfortunately no. But these could be aftermarket changes?? I did have the thought of simply replacing the windows for the better insulation. Although I heard in 15 they are going to ship with flush mounted windows, so that might be a change there. a toilet and a sink are easy to replace just in my opinion, particularly if one bought a preowned unit.

I have a 40 foot diesel pusher, it loses power on inclines. Should I manually downshift or let the transmission down shift on its own or could it be another problem. I'm going to change fuel filters. Has anyone else had the problem and if so what fixed it?

i think that they all slow down on uphills unless you have a MASSIVE engine. Mine slows down too, but depends on the grade. some smaller grades I can power up them, but really steep I slow down. I never mess much with gearing down myself, the tranny seems to know what it's doing without me having to mess with it.

Plasma 800. I think if you special order, there probably isn't much you can't ask for, to include tiled backspashes.
