Justin and Naomi, just began full-timing in our 2008 Fleetwood Excursion 40X! With Kawasaki KLR650 mounted on the back. With poodles Casey Jones and Watson! We are staying West coast for now, heading south for winter. We love our rig, couple of plumbing probs but we fixed them. Just had oil change and checkup, all good, runs sweet and true. One concern is fuel mileage seems to be about 6.5 mpg, is that a little low for a Cummins ISC 360? We're right at 30,000lbs, gvwr 31,000lbsClick image for larger version

Hello and welcome!

MPG can depend on many factors like how we drive them, shifting intervals, using the economy mode switch, heavy foot, what we're towing, or where like mountainous/hilly terrain or mainly highway vs curvy backroads.

I average about 8 mpg with the big girl at about 55,000lbs, 600 horses, towing our pickup which is about 7000lbs-ish.

Congrats on the new rig and many happy miles to you!
