First Long Trip - Sunseeker 2250SLE

Really happy with the Sunseeker. Just did a 1500 mile trip and camped for 5 days. Had no issues or problems at all. The trip included heavy rains during both camping and driving, plus a windy trip yesterday. No leaks!

Love the Ford chassis; got 10 mpg on average for the trip, rarely if ever on a flat road (hills and mountains up to over 2000 ft. ).

So, for now at least, all is well. It's an RV though so I also know things can change!

I'm very glad to hear the MPG report. I have been wanting to hear reports from Ford owners with the 6 speed trans.

We averaged little over 11 MPG on our trip from San Marcos, Texas to Maine, Rhode Island and New Hampshire then it was off through Vermont and New York to take the TT back to where it was born so it could have a few adjustments made. Wonderful trip and the 5 Liter & 6 Spd Trans did a good job.

Next trip will be out to Big Bend National Park for a week-10 days.

Have had our 2016 3010DS with the six speed since January and have driven it just about 7,000 miles, most of which with a 2 door Jeep Wrangler in tow. Worst MPG was 7.1 on a very windy day on the interstate. Best MPG was 8.3 mostly on two lane roads at 50-55 MPH.
