Lets join the real world. We cannot all afford 40ft pushers powered by 20 litre turbo diesels like our friend raynipper. I think you will find that a 1996 Brave will have a 6.5litre turbo diesel. It was not a bad engine and powered my 31ft Brave quite happily, usually towing a trailer weighing a ton. Fuel consumption checked over 25,000 miles worked out at 12.5mpg. As regards noise, I agree that a 6.2litre in the front of a Sunsport was noisy as it was a bit short on sound insulation. The 6.5 was much quieter as Winnebago had made a much better job of sound insulation. Go and have a look at it and see what you think.
