Especially in a roadtrip setting, engines need 2 things, as much (clean) air in as possible and as much blown out the back as possible. First thing to change on all my vehicles is intake and exhaust, the 2 easiest and cheapest ways to improve performance.
Just be very careful not to over oil the filter and take out the Mass-airflow sensor. $$$$$

Yes, thank you. I have heard about people doing that, lol. Fortunately, I've used them in my family SUV, my Jeep and formerly, my SCCA race car so I've got it down. But you bring up an excellent point to the new RV-ers.

I have had good luck on e-bay with some searching. Go for "filters" rather than type of unit or engine/chassis type. The usual downside is the shipping costs but with some careful searching you can come up with real good deals. many offer free shipping if your dollar value is sufficient. Worth a try anyway. good luck

Another thought, The mass air flow sensor is located in the intake air stream and can be ruined with microscopic particles hitting the sensor surface. I have tried reusable filters is the past and was astonished that the instructions said not to "over oil" as this would stop too much dirt, or words to that effect. I believe that air filters are required to stop all dirt right down to 5 or 6 microns in size. I have stopped using the so-called reusable air filters which can stop too much dirt and change the regular paper element filter when needed. I do, however, have a 5" exhaust sytem on my diesel pusher. IMHO a lot of damage can be done to an engine running a resusable/oiled air filter system.
