1600 usually.

The problem with asking what RPM at a certain speed really isn't meaningful because there are so many variables. Rear end gearing, transmission final ratio, and even the brand of tires can play into the equation. For tires of the same size, different brands can have different diameters.

'04 CC Inspire 40' with ISC350 we usually cruise 1500-1600, just above torque of 1400. We may be a little heavier as you stated but the quality that has been put in this coach is top notch. 60k and nothing major has failed and no worse than any other coach IMO.

Ditto to Chuydog on 05 Inspire with C-9 Cat. Have to get just over 55 mph to shift to 6th gear.

We have been traveling in short 100-150 mile hops. So for those I've been in 5th gear at 45 mph. A half hour more on the road is no big deal and the milage has gone from 7.1 gpm to 9.5 gpm. rpm wise it's about 1375 and I try and keep the turbo boost below 5.5 psi. Even running at about the same rpm in 6th at 55 mph the turbo boost goes up and the mileage goes down. When you try and push a brick through the air it takes a lot of energy to move that air out of the way even at 55.
