Howdy and welcome to iRV2! We have the Triton V-10 in our 34' Bounder with a GCWR of 26,000 lb. We tow a 3700 pound Jeep Wrangler and the Ford gets the job done! Our average MPG is around 7 to 7.5 MPG.

Hi Scooter! Welcome to IRV2! It's great to have you join the bunch!

Sorry I can't help with your questions but you'll get the best results if you post over in the appropriate areas of the forum. Not many folks hang out here in the Welcome area so your questions don't get much exposure. Enjoy the forum!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Howdy from NYC and SC and welcome to the forums. We have the workhorse chassis and the Vortec engine on ours, but we pull a KIA Rio all over without any problems at all. IMO you will have no issues.

The 22,000 GVWR will be more of a problem, on a 36' unit than anything else. Brother-in -law had a 35' Tiffin on a 22,000 lb Workhorse chassis and was always at the limit. With the storage space available it's easy to get too heavy in a hurry. What is the advertised Cargo Carrying Capacity. I'd be looking for 2500lbs CCC in a unit that length, minimum.
