I'm looking at a class C on a ford chassis with a V10 engine and no big cab over the front.


I have a conventional C Class and a friend has a B+ both on the same chassis. When we run down the road together, same road & speed we get identical mileage.

The difference between the two front ends means nothing in mileage from an aerodynamic point of view.

The big difference is I have an ‘extra’ queen bed that he doesn’t.

My 09 Cambria was aerodynamic in the front also. 8.5 mpg average over a 45k mile period.
Pulling a 5k load I got as low as 5 mpg with a bit of a head wind. Pulling my JK Wrangler there was no difference in MPG. 62mph was the sweet spot. A super C can be quite large on an International bobtail chassis. I have seen some Chevrolet's with the Duramax diesel. . I have a Duramax in my GMC truck. Pulling my trailer @10K pounds it gets maybe 12/14 @ 60mph. All stock, no chips, no tuners.

We were in a smaller 22 foot class C with a V10. We could get around 12 but that was at around 90 kmh (maybe 55 mph) in the BC interior. We travelled on American interstates from time to time but can't remember what the mileage was. It dropped like a stone over 55 and we never went above 70 mph. Probably around 10 mpg US. Put a lot of mikes on that thing in Canada, the US and Mexico. Tough as nails

Yes my 02 Ford E450 get 8 to 10. I would not worry about MPG if you want this lifestyle, had this rig for 19 years when gas prices was $.99 back in 02 to $4.25 in 2008. One can always tent camp. Go RV.
