Good one guys!!! LOL Took me a while to catch the entendre. Should have said a viewing of the coach.

Yup - we are happy with our purchase. Has worked very well for us and the support and service have been stellar. Still would have liked to look at a Marathon conversion and see what an extra million actually buys.

The ones I have seen online are pretty blingy inside. Nice to look at but not all that functional in my opinion. Most have no slides.

Are You A Thread Killer

But the floors are so slick you can slide here, and slide there, and they get 25 mpg... I think that is what Gordon said anyway....

Would be great to have a coach that made 25 to the gallon. More miles per gallon if you use the Imperial gallons but still falls well short.

It says that right on the sidewall of your tires, 22.5.

Should drive the toad more and the coach less!!

However I do think your analysis is very valid for overall calculations.

We generally drive the toad much more... probably by at least a half, but to figure that milage would get into higher math and then I'd have to ask Ted to help and he'd have to get Tim to help and,... well, you see how complicated that gets.

I'm beginning to sense a thread of consistency. Please. Somebody kill it before it gains life.

We annually put about 10K on the MH. 15K on the Wrangler. Adventures are everywhere within about 100 miles of base camp!
K. Solved that. Thread: DEAD

Ok, 10miles, up hill + 5 miles on level road then 20 miles on 6% downhill grade. You start with a full tank then fill up again at end of above described trip needing 2.0gallons of fuel.
So, what color was the toad?
