gas mileage

I have a 2011 378xl with the workhorse 8.1 chevy in it. I am pulling a chevy cruze. Just wondering if any one knows what i can expect. I live on the west coast and typically travel the I-5 from Canadian boarder to Mesa. Thanks

mileage

Yes that's a start. My last motor home was a 2011 Itasca 31E with the V-10 and it only got between 7 and 7.5 while towing the Cruze. This one is bigger but i think the Chev powerplant gets better mileage. Well at least i hope it will. The last coach was my wifes pick but she realized it was too small for extended stays so this is my pick and i just hope she likes it.

6-7 is pretty standard for a gas RV with a vehicle in tow
