Stalking an ACE 29.3

Greetings. First time poster. We haven't done any RV-ing since the tent camper days in the mid '90's when our kids were wee. I have been keeping my eye on an ACE 29.3 that has been sitting at a local dealer for about 6 months now. They have taken it from RV show to RV show around the valley and we always see it and always scope it out and end up just sitting in it. I think the salesmen think we are lunatics. We really love the floor plan since it provides ample open floor area for our old Lab to walk around on.
I have read scads of posts on these forums discussing the pros and the cons and I figure if I get one, it will either be excellent or it will have issues. that part is a crap shoot.
What I am interested in are the more concrete aspects of the unit. Like, what type of MPG do those of you who have one routinely see? How costly is a scheduled chassis service from a Ford dealer? What can you expect to pay when it's time to replace tires? Stuff like that.

Being 3 years out from retirement I reckon it's time to get something and commence working the kinks out because our intention is to spend the first year after retirement driving all over the place. Thanks for your input.
