Survey:Who Has the Most Miles on their 8.1 Vortec

Survey: Who Has the Most Miles on their 8.1 Vortec
So who can we crown the winner?
I know it won't be me we only have 66,000 miles.
But I have read where some truck owners have gotten over 400,000 miles from their 8.1.
Can you imagine putting 400,000 miles on an RV, the places you would have seen, the memories that would have been made. ..
The Repairs you would have done...lol

I just sold my 7.4L Vortec with no expectations of any problems. Is the 8.1L setup really that much worse?

Not us, either, as we only have 79,000 miles on our 2004 Itasca Sunrise.

47,000 miles total, 15K of them in the 6 months I've owned it.

Really easy to work on, even big jobs would be easy. These rear-engine gas coaches are really nice in that regard

We have 95,000 mi on a 2004 Mountain Aire and no issues of any sort as yet. Unfortunately it’s parked for this winter due to COVID.

Not what you asked about, but we've got over 110,000 on the 2013 Bus with a 450 ISL 8.9l. Looking to add another 17,000 if the northern border opens for summer.

I might go for the least miles award. 17,100 miles on my 2004 Vortec. Only had 13k when we bought it last year.
