We went from a 25ft Coachman/small slideout to 2011 vlite 30wrlts which is 34ft long. Gas mileage stayed about same,much more space especially hanging clothes in vfront. We have a 2009 chev 2500 heavyduty,6 speed allison trans get between 9-10mpg to Florida and back average from Indiana. A little above 10 at 55mph in flat ground in Indiana.

We traded our 2007 Outback 21rs for a 2012 flagstaff v-lite 30wfkss and we went from 6 to 8 mpg to around 9 to 10. So while not a lot of difference but considering we went from 22 feet to 34 feet i think we did pretty well.

We went from a 33' Edgewater to the 34' V-Lite and picked up about 1 to 1.5 mpg that we have seen. I am hesitant to say that the V-Lite really is any better as we only towed the Edgewater 4 times before we traded it so headwinds etc could have been in play.

A 6.0 with an Allison 6 speed, really?
