Bought ours with 77,500 miles one year ago and she now has 81,500 miles. Being all diesel owners for the last 15 years with a Jeep Liberty and Dodge Ram, mileage was not a concern. With regular oil changes and maintenance diesel engines love to be run. Our Ram (22-24 mpg) now has 268,000 miles on it and it runs like the day we drove it off the lot new. The Jeep (28-35 mpg) has a little four banger CRD (Central Rail Drive) in it and she'll outlast us. The Cat 330 in the motorhome(8-11 mpg) has the least mileage on it and I don't foresee the day we'll outlast it either. Now if they just made alternators, serpentine belts, water pumps, starters and injector pumps as good as a diesel engine is made we would have the complete package. Now if I was looking at a gas coach, mileage would be my first concern.

Rolling up on 169,000, '94 Fleetwood Bounder, DP. Looks like it's on the downhill slide. Broke a valve off that dropped onto a piston last year, $5700, they found oil in the anti-freeze from an internal pump that's very expensive to replace...with no guaranty the new one won't leak too. I'll let that one slide. Runs fine, and I'm keeping it for another year.

Been all over the place, up to Alaska and back several times, all around the SW & the Yucatan, up/down the Mexican west coast, up/down central Mexico, as far east as Iowa. I'm use to her, but I'd like to have a slide next time around. Or two slides.
