Question Fuel Efficient Class B+

Hello everyone, I'm new to this community and am looking for some help. My wife and I are looking to buy a motorhome and yesterday missed out on a gem, 2006 Itasca Navion 24H, 25,000 km and the seller was asking $54,000 Cdn. We are looking for fuel effecient class B+.
Can anyone suggest other fuel effecient class B+ motorhomes for me to research.
Thank you in advance

Sprinter Class B/C


We ended up in a C, but looked at and was into 2 deals on a Navion... Itasca's version of the Winnebago View.
It's a great choice, especially the earlier ones, up to 2009. The 2006-2007 are actually an even better choice, no need for ULSD, Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel, and they have the inline 5 cylinder which gets better milage than the newer 3.0 V6. I looked at, and drove a few of them, almost bought a nice 2009 Prism, but that's another story.
They have great space usage, and are fairly comfortable for 2 people plus a couple dogs. Not good for 4...
Too bad you missed that deal, but I can tell you from experience, when the deal is the right one, it will all fall together, our search was 3 years. 3 l o n g years of research, endless...
Good Luck!
Keep looking at Views, Navions, and all the sprinter based coaches, but make sure the floor plan is comfortable, for your needs.

We full-time in a 2008 Leisure Travel Vans Libero. It is considered a B+ at 25 ft. We average 16 mpg flat landing and 13 mpg in the mountains. Made in Canada and U.S. we love it!

Thanks for the feedback, Leisure Travel Vans has a very informative site and a very nice product line. And if you took 3 years in your search Y2KTAWS6 I guess my 3 months so isn't too bad.

Love my Libero also and LTV does have some nice rigs. I looked at a lot of RVs when I wanted to downsize from a 40ft Monaco Dynasty and I selected the Libero. But there are so many different brands/models to choose from and it becomes a personal choice of which works best for you. The LTV B+ RVs have a lot of storage space, inside and out, that was a plus for me besides the drivability, ride comfort and general quality of the product met my requirement.

Good luck on whatever your decison is

Airstream Interstate

We have a 2004 Airstream that is built on a Mercedes Sprinter Van with a diesel engine. We love it, great for two, easy to drive and park. Gas mileage 22 to 24 mpg. You cannot do better! around 2007-09 they made them a foot longer, used dual wheels in back and put in a bigger engine. I think Airstream calls it the Interstate 3500. It gets lower mileage. We bought ours in 06 with 25,000 miles for $50,000.

We own a Pleasure Way Excel TS, its just a Class B but the best thing about Class B's is being able to park in a regular parking space. To us thats at the top of the list after driving about 9000 miles around the country. Of course gas mileage is starting to become number 1 reason lately.
