My 91 with 460 without slide ranges from 8 to a bit above 10 - depends on terrain, speed etc. Most of the mileage is closer to the 8 than the 10.

Any where to 6 to 10 mpg depending on how you drive it and the terrain.

Ouch! I'm in trouble. Trading this unit for 35' Class A Holiday Rambler with ford V10 engine and if I'm lucky, might get 5 mph. (Believe I need to admit myself to a state mental hospital!)

Thanks to all that responded to my question.

Howdy DC!

I think you will:
  1. Like the Class A motorhome better than the Class C
  2. The Class A with the V10 should get at least 7 mpg
  3. Discover that a nice motorhome substitutes just fine for a 'mental hospital'.
Enjoy your new HR!
