Better have 6 to 9 grand in the bank for this. There is more to it than slapping on a blower. More air means more fuel must be provided. Bigger injectors might be needed, different pressure regulator and most certainly a chip.
The V10 shouldn't need a compression drop, as long as you run moderate boost levels (~7 lbs max). You may have to run premium fuel at all times to prevent pre-ignition.
I don't see any supercharger kits listed for motorhomes, so anything you come up with will most likely not be a straight "bolt-on" application.
Have you thought about doing things incrementally. 5-star makes a chip for yours that I have heard great things about. You would eventually need one, so you could start there and see if it gives you some gains.
