mpg - class a motorhome v-10 vs 6.0

Can someonen tell me what kind of mpg difference there would be? I have a friend who is thinking of purchasing a motorhome and was told that they get the same mpg or within a mile or two. He gets 7-9 with the v-10.

2002 f-350 PSD, 4x4, cc short bed, 6spd, ccv mod, airdog, AIS filter, isspro ev and scangauges, detroit TT, ITP boost annihalator, ITP RR, bellowed up-pipes, ats housing, turbomaster, 3.5 dp magnaflow, very happy with ultra smooth and linear PHP 50t, 80DD and "whisper" tunes.

Re: mpg - class a motorhome v-10 vs 6.0

I don't know about the 6.0

But I have a Class A with a v-10 and only get about 8-10 mpg at best in it.

My 7.3L with my 37' 14,000 lb 5th wheel I get about 10 mpg consistantly.

Being that the 7.3L is more fuel efficent then the 6.0, I'd say the v-10 and 6.0 would be close.

Depending on what you want to do, I'd probably go with the v-10.

Plus if you have the 6.0 then you would need to get the diesel generator, or you have to carry another tank of fuel for your genny. Which is a pain in the ass.

Re: mpg - class a motorhome v-10 vs 6.0

It also depends on what year the Class C V-10 is. After 2004, most all V-10 trannys were the new Torqueshift which is a MUCH better tranny for the big rigs. With their gearing and the TS tranny, I'd say 9-10 mpg is about right. I wouldn't touch a 6 leaker with a 10 foot pole especially in a RV.
