Anyone have over 100k miles on Their Rig?

Just curious if anyone here on irv2 has over 100k on their rig and if they have gas or diesel. Thought it would be interesting to see how long a gas engine lasts compared to a diesel rig in real world motorhome driving conditions.

Far from it on this one but our 94 Fleetwood Bounder 32H Ford 460 had 116K when we traded it and was running like a top. If it wasn't for the extra room that we really wanted we would still be driving it.

I had a 1978 Winnebago Brave with about 128K when I sold it. The Dodge 440, engine, tranny and chassis never cost me a dime other than routine maintenance. It was running great and passed emissions just before it was sold.

I read somewhere that GM said the 8.1 gas engine was good for 200,000 miles in RV use. My Dad used to say "paper doesn't refuse ink", so they can claim/write what they want. I know there have been early failures of the 8.1 engine, but others have had good luck. I had a 1983 Winnebago Chieftain with a carburated 454 gas. It was running reliably and had and 115,000 miles when I sold it and bought a 1995 Safari Trek with the GM 6.5 Turbodiesel. This had 137,000 when sold, but it took a lot of $ to make it run that far.
