Wink Average MPG

Returned Sunday from a 11 day trip to THOR for warranty work. Averaged 13 mpg going up and 14 mpg return at 65 mph. Low 11.7 and high 15. Once in Indiana the weather turned for the worst. High 20s to middle 30s with high winds, rain, sleet and snow. Windows and vents covered with reflectex. Set the thermostat to 60 at night threw an extra blanket on the bed and covered the dog's kennel with two blankets and we were very comfortable. Overnighted at Walmart.

32 Hurricane with Ford F53 chassis gets 7.5 to 9 mpg. 7.5 while towing in mountainous terrain and 9 w/o toad and on flatland.

My realistic opinion is that most of us will see between 8 & 9 mpg with Ford E chassis Class C and between 7 & 8 with an F 53 chassis. My friend with a Transit chassis Gemini says he gets about 14.

How did your experience at Wakarusa go?

Not bad for a motorhome that large.

Manufacturers should offer some units that size that got 12~13 MPG on gasoline chassis. Lower initial cost could attract new buyers.

Very happy with their service. I had two warranty items, slides bowed in the middle and the drivers wing wall delaminated. The slide was not properly aligned when installed. Slide operates much smoother and quieter. They spent several hours on the slide and it still has a small gap at the bottom which is hardlly noticable. They had to keep it overnight Tuesday and they put us in a motel and furnished us a rental car. They replaced the steps, water pump, tail lights, adjusted coach door. yey also did a propane leak test, and ran it through the rain booth. They finished up a 10 Friday morning and we were on our way 30 minutes later. All at no cost to us.

Had two small problem while on the road. Both on the way up. I had to tighten the AC hold down bolts at the first rest area we stopped. Approximately 15 minutes delay and then back on the road. Just south of Kokoma, Ind. the MH jumped out of cruse and an alarm would sound when l tried to reengage. A symbol of a skidding vehicle and a tire showed on the dash. After lunch when I turned on the key everything was okay. Except for the cold weather in Indiana the trip was enjoyable. I wouldn't hesitate to go again if need to.

Great report...for those that have never been, the attitude and dedication of the factory service people are completely different than any dealer experience I've ever had. They really care and service is all they do. If you have big issues...take it home!
