I installed a second battery in coachmen M230 Prism, more power is always good. I keep mine plugged in also to keep them charged. I live in Canada so I take them out in the winter and keep them on a trickle charger in the garage.

We get 16+ mpg on highway, so we use it like a big station wagon, driving it almost everyday, shopping in it, tailgating, even went to the diner theater in it, so we could have cocktails and hors d'oeuvre before we went in for diner and show. With the 2 slide outs, it makes having to spend longer times in it very comfortable and still provide easy access to almost all city driving and street parking.
What fun we have had so far, the MB Sprinter chassis is a joy to drive and I can see us putting hundreds of thousands of miles on it.
A 32,000 mile update, we continue to get 16+ mpg. I don't know if it just my getting use to driving this wonderful vehicle or it is just breaking in, but it seems to be more responsive and agile. I have read on View/Navion blogs concerns about wind and truck passing swaying issues, however I don't see these issues on our rig. In fact, we drive a lot in the mountains of NC and I find that this Sprinter just leans into the curves like a car. I have no problem keeping up with the traffic on the 2 lane roads. The only thing I watch for is low tree limbs, which I have dodged by driving on the other side of the road when possible. We were fortunate to purchase a full body painted model and I must say it still looks new and sparkles. We continue to be very pleased making Costco runs and putting the frozen purchases in the freezer.

Any one else out there love their coachmen motorhomes/
Am considering buying a Freelander 21QB. Really love the floor plan over Roadtreks and other class b,b+ and small c rvs. Price is a lot lower of course but you get what you pay for, also. I've seen some reviews on shoddy parts they use. I really want to know the gas mileage also
Thnk You
