We are considering a Super C but with the price of fuel is it worth buying the Diesel. Does anyone out there have the Super C and can tell us mileage difference between diesel and gas. Thanks.

Ours only has 5,1000 miles on it and it consistently gives us 10 MPG towing on the flat, less of course in the mountains. Our class A with the GM 8.1 motor gave us 7 to 8 on the same routes. Both MHs are about the same weight.

Are you happy with the Super C? I persume you have the diesel. We have a 35 Winnebago Adventure and were thinking we would like to go with the Super C. Good luck.

Yes, we do have the diesel and are very happy with it. We also like the super C but would recommend that you consider carefully the MH size and the chassis weight carrying capacity. While ours is well within it's GVWR, many super C's are built on rather light chassis leaving little cargo carrying capacity (CCC). Also, be aware of the wheelbase to overall length ratio which should be above approx. 52%. Our Seneca has a 56% ratio and still needed expensive after market suspension upgrades to satisfy our taste for handling. About the only thing we miss about our class A is the panoramic view out the front window. But, the overhang on the C shades the cab keeping it considerably cooler and we like the idea of air bags in the cockpit.
