Smile New owner

Good morning to all. I am Erika Taggart, living in Wittelshofen, Germany and my husband Peter and i are owners here in Germany of a Caravan and a German RV (Cartago, year 2006). My son Jason, who lives in the States, just bought a Atlantis Holiday Rambler 29 PDB (year 2005) for us. We are planing to visit the states and will travel with the "new" Holiday Rambler for 3-6 month through the USA. My question is......how much miles to the gallon does a 2005 Holiday Rambler get.
P.S. you have to excuse if some words are not spelled right, left the USA in 1985 and i am not so good in spelling anymore.

I would plan on 7-8 miles per gallon. I would go to the low side to be safe. Motorhomes as with most RV's aren't the best on fuel. Good luck, hope you enjoy your trip and your fuel per gallon is better than you plan. Fuel is going down in price so hopefully it continues for your trip.. Safe travels.

You can use 7 MPG as a basis for figuring you mileage.

Gas prices vary from place to place so I would use this website to find out the current prices. Just type in the name of the city and you will see the price at several gas stations.

It will work for gas stations anywhere in the United States.

Thank you all for your welcomes and the good wishes. Well Peter and i have to get use to the MPG but what the heck you only live once. So we have to save some money now before we make our trip :-) :-) Thanks again and you all have a nice day.
