Do I need a RV shrink?

I'm not really a "go get um RV'er" but I own one and
they intrigue me and my wallet. Specially the upper
end coaches.

Mine is a motor home.

And I own a 74 Merc with a 460 that goes like hell.
But it only gets 4 or 5 mpg than my MH.

Are there any RV shrinks on the forum that could help me?

Thanks for listening.

Now let's see, an RV shrink.

Is that the salesman who lets you trade in your 13' wide 37' long CLASS A on a 13' SCAMP
(8' wide by 13' long) travel trailer?

Is that in like "Honey I shrunk the kids!"? Or do you just want to get a smaller RV.

Methinks my brother Washingtonian is Jonesin' bad for a nicer coach. Happens to the best of us!

Don't let it get the best of ya Fred! All those precious Benjamins you'd be laying down for a little more bling won't get you down the road any further or keep the beer colder than your little Flair does.

Go ahead and window shop and dream Fred, but I know I'm glad for the crusty old coach I have that's reliable and paid for.

Option 2 in my case.

Intentionally mis-reading what he posted in order to take advantage of the humor factor.

What did he say, what gets 4 or 5 mpg the Merc or the MH. I do agree he does maybe needs a shrink.
