RV Purchase

Hello all: I need some opinions. I am currently in the process of purchasing a 2005 40' Alfa See Ya motorhome. It has a 350 Cat and appears to be in good shape. My question is does anybody out there own one or has owned one previously and what did you think of it? Also on our mileage I am figuring 8 to 10 mpg. Is this a realistic number. I didn't see any paperwork but i believe it weighs right around 31000 lbs. Any and all information you can give me will be greatly appreciated.

Had an 07 Phaeton with a 350 C7 cat engine. In 18+K miles and towing a jeep liberty I averaged 7.8 to 8.5 MPH. I understood that more MPH would come with more miles on the rig.

Nice big engine there. Only pushing 88lbs/HP. I think you'll be lucky to get more then 8.5MPG. Keep your speed down.

A C-7, 350 HP and 860 ft lbs torque. Had a 2000 DSDP with the 300 HP, 860 ft lbs 3126. To me it wasn't enough torque and we were about the same weight or a little less. Never worried too much about the mileage though.
