I am new to your site. I currently have a 1999 30E Bounder with a Ford V-10. I am considering trading it in on something a bit smaller perhaps a Lexington 26 foot or a BT cruiser 27 foot. With the class B+ body style and a smaller engine, can anyone tell me if I can expect to get better gas mileage than the 8 mpg I get with my Bounder? I understand about not overloading, but the weight seems like alot for the smaller engine so is it a tradeoff gas mileage wise??
