Thoughts on Serrano vs Avanti vs other high MPG FRED Class A

I'm looking at guying a high MPG DClass A which pretty much means a FRED motorhome. Does anyone have thoughts on Serrano vs Avant vs another option?

With all the other costs, including the initial outlay of money, fuel mileage is pretty low on my list.

Say you pay an extra $20,000 for something that gets 4 mpg better mileage. How far do you need to drive to save that $20,000? Short answer is a LONG WAY!

That's why I will stick to our gasser.

So basically you have nothing useful to the topic at hand but you wanted to Karen reply anyways?

Using just the up front cost of something as the sole tole to financially value it is flawed logic.

One of those RV's i listed gets 15mpg. that's more than a 4mpg difference over a Triton.

Sorry to have offended you.

I guess your idea of economics is different than mine.

You didn't offend anyone. It was not a useful response and your logic was flawed
