6.2 diesel vs Sprinter

I have a 84 Country Squire C with a 6.2 which is known for being underpowered. Saw that the hp and tq ratings for a Sprinter based RV's are not that much more than my 6.2. Should I be able to keep up with a sprinter or are sprinters under rated on power? Just wondering.

Thnks
oh yeah Im new here.

What does your 84 Country Squire C weigh? Compare that to the weigh of a Sprinter-based rig. Might provide a basis for comparison.

My 2006 Winnebago View, which is on a Sprinter chassis, weighs about 10,000 pounds and I don't consider it under-powered. Even with our 2,800 pound Mini Cooper toad, it does very well. We typically enjoy 14 to 15 mpg with the toad, driving between 60 and 65 mph.

And welcome to iRV2 . . . great place!

Good point did not consider weight. I have no complaints about my rig I was just curious. The previous owner stated the rig got 15mpg from MI to AR.
