I watch a lot of yankee stuff, and see the inside of a lot of RVs, not all obviously but all naff so far., name one which isn't and I'll take a look.

I have to say I've not seen this model and it does appeal no good for us wildcamping.

Yes Kev an absolute gift at $60k. Not as tasteful layout as ours but similar. We had more heated marble floors and auto generator with the 400hp engine.
We paid $212,000 in 2002. We did manage to wild camp at times but with our Coast to Coast membership giving $6 full hook up stays, why?

Phew deep pockets Ray, the MPG must have been interesting too.

I watch this cheap now and then, it can be quite interesting seeing the old stuff being worked on.


he now has a weird outro which is bit tacky

Many of those greyhound busses end up over a million miles. Most of the mid range RVs like ours were built on the Spartan chassis originally designed for fire engines.

He does get in some very nice outfits though to work on, which have been to so-called professional garages and come out worse than they went in, so no change there then.

MPG Kev is generally about 10 mpg. Depending on right foot and Imperial or American gallons.
Odd but the small 30 to 36ft. van chassis with petrol 7.4L V8 s get about 10 to 12. Some like to think they can get 18 but I always thought it was wishful thinking.
Then the 14 ton Cummins 9L inline six 400hp could also get about 10 mpg or 8 to 9 mpg American gallons.

As I was an owner driver on the films I would generally get 10 mpg but employees driving the same size and type RV would only get 5 mpg. But it was all on expenses.
