    We look over a Vista Cruiser Mini that the paperwork said it would get 17-19 mpg, of course it had a CUMMINS diesel in it.

    RE: motor homes

    The Vista Cruiser is considered a small Class C if I was told right.It is big enough for us and small enough for me to drive if necessary.

    This should fit all u'r needs and then some ,, but IMO do a good walk thru if u decide on a purchase ,, cause u know as well as i do about all the hidden defects in a coach ,, etc.. saw dust in the ends of the closets and poor drawer slides and stuff like that ,, but heck u have been thru this before so i'm sure u'll be ok :) :) :approve: :approve:

    Re: motor homes

    Thanks to you and all the rest I kinda stumped the salesman when I asked questions that was way over his head, like what is the CCC and GVWR , storage cubic feet, you get the Idea, this a up grade from a Provan 19 footer that was a oversized van
    So to all thanks and a good night I got to massage David and tuck him into bed.

    RE: motor homes

    Yes Papa the higherend coaches do cost more ,, with or without a diesel ,, but u are paying for all the bling they put inside ,, myself own a 40ft Alegro Bus ,, but it's a 97 and the interior is basic and livable ,, no mirrors ,, not granet floors and just plain old counter tops ,, that's what a MH should be IMO ,, a place that u can live in ,, what type of rv , and how old are u looking at ,, if i may ask???

    Sometimes Rod (730) puts out 3 or 4 posts before he realizes his hands have shifted on the keyboard! ;) :clown:

    hey papa mine get 6-9 mpg and that depend on if you going down hill or up. I think it use gas just sitting up. It seem to low everytime I look at the gas gauge. anyway enjoy what every u decide on getting , like tex said buy something that u are comfortable in and with.

    You all are better than I am , since this little medical mishap I am a search and poke typist, Did not know that with one side down how much it can mess up your everyday life. But I am blessed, I have a gentleman that is in rehab with me that has lost both legs and one arm. He is trying to adjust to his new ones. have a great day, and God Bless you all
    brodavid
    Also Tex , we are now looking at a Vista Cruiser 24' with the ford 450 chassis with the V10 engine.So thanks to all of you in helping me to bamboozle the salesman with RV words and questions that he thought a little lady should not know or ask.
    love and prayers

    I really like mine in a 31 footer. Sallyberetta does, too! That length will be so easy to get around in. Ours has kept us from 'upgrading' several times.
