Never owned an RV before..... so really dumb....

Looking at a 2004 model 235 w/ slide. He is asking $29K w/ 27,000 miles.
It has a 6 liter chev V8.
Any comments plus or minus? Good or no good?

What kind of gas mileage can I expect?

Tried to find low book/ high book values.
Couldn't find in NADA.
Can someone help and give me a link?

Whats the overall height of this Class B.

Many Thanks !!!!!

Steve

I have the Chevy 6L engine and I get 9 MPG towing a car. Yours is smaller but probably weighs about the same due to the slide, and looks a little more streamlined. I guess your gas mileage would be about 10+ if you don't tow. The Chevy engine has been great.

Here is a link to the NADA page. Its for the ford version so I would expect the Chevy version to be a little lower price.

It isn't a true Class B...it's a Class C or as they like to advertise it as a B+. Check for a forum on the web for R Vision, or go the the Class C section of the site for answers to your questions.

stevekk - Welcome to the forum. Yes, it is called a B+, but that is how RVision decided to market their Class C without the over-the-cab bed.

We love our RVision Trail-Lite, we have had no problems yet (knock on wood). We have over 39,000 miles and I have kept track of every gallon of gas placed in the tank. We have an overall average of 12.1 miles per gallon. I do drive under the speed limit. About 75% of the time, we pull an enclosed fiberglass trailer with motorcycle inside. The construction quality of the unit is slightly above average of what we have seen and has not caused us any concerns.

The height of the model 235-S is 10'-2", exterior width is 94", overall length is 23'-7".

There is a thread called the B+ Motorhomes that has over 270 pages of comments primarily by owners of B+ style of a motorhome.

Here is what your floor plan looks like -

I have a small Class C, with the same Chevy engine. Mine is 25 ft - not sure at the length of yours. BTW... the Trail lite is NOT a Class B.

My mileage for my first 4000 miles has been between 11.5 and 13.5, depending on the usual variables of wind, terrain, and my speed. This is lightly loaded... no water on board as it is winter - except a few jugs.

We get 14-15 city and 16-17 highway in our Roadtrek Class B. It is smaller then what you are looking at, but that is where you are going to get the better gas mileage. The diesels will get you a little better gas mileage.

thanks everyone.
thanks for the NADA link, I looked and looked and could't find it. Found trail lite trailers but no class B. therefore a big thanks..

Dang... I was hoping the gas mileage would be better !!
Doesn't it just kill you guys/ gals with gas at 4 bucks a gal and maybe more to boot.. in the future !!!

I an a real conservative type guy...I can aford it, but just would hate those fillups.
Whats the best bang for the buck RV wise regarding gas mileage ?
