I have a 2004 Sunseeker 3100SS, I get between 7-8 mpg. Since I live in Colorado, if I even look at the mountains, it drops to 6.

By the way, when I fill up, I am limited to $75 which *barely* fills the tank if I'm below 1/4.

V10 gas mpg

Has anyone added the Banks system on their V10? I wonder if it really does help with the mpg as well as increasing the horsepower enough to justify the cost.

Class C or class A

We were torn between a class C and a class A. Honestly they were all but identical. The engines and chassis are the same. What prompted our decision to go with the A over the C?

The A has automatic levelers. HUGE time saver expecially when it's cold, dark, windy, snowy (like today), or rainy outside.

The C has an overhead bunk in the front which honestly was one of it's great appeals. It also had a tub shower rather than the Class A's shower only. Now I put a buspan (grey pan used in restaurants for bussing dishes) in the bottom to bathe the children.

The other advantage that the A had over the C was the storage space - oodles rather than just quite a lot. So much so that I bring the kid's plastic picnic table (doesn't weigh much) and we have the room.

As for fitting into tight spots, the A has a tighter turning radius than our 3/4 ton long bed extended cab pick up. Height is also a concern. The similar class C was 3 inches shorter.

I don't think the sail area is really any different. I don't find that wind affects the driving nearly as much as road surface.

I would concentrate more on what configuration inside suits your needs the best. If it is only the two of you perhaps the overhead bunk in the front really isn't necessary. Perhaps more "living area" desks/workspace is important. For us storage underneath and heated underneath storage areas were important. Of course right now there is 4" of snow on top of our rig!
