Mileage has nothing to do with W/W (Winnebago) and everything to do with the nut behind the steering wheel.>>>Dan

A lot of variables in that question, speed you drive, gas or diesel, size of MH, what do you tow?  We have a 06 F53 and tow 10,000 lbs and get about 7 mpg most of the time.  But I don't drive the interstate speed limit.

We have a winnebago view ( skinny winnie )...

Got 16-17 mpg on the first couple of tanks. Should get better when the engine breaks in.

Depends, downhill and tail wind I do real well, uphill and head wind it is a different story.  When someone with a "big" rig tells you they are getting 12 MPG, their math is faulty.   To get true readings you need to average several tank fulls.  I quit checking as it was making my ulcer's grow.

I checked our mileage last year between Phoenix and Quartzsite pulling a car on a dolly with our Winnebago Voyage 38J  and got 7.1 mpg.  Today drove the same setup from Lakewood, NM to Sayre, Ok, and got 6.0 mpg.

What kind of gas mileage are people getting with the w/w?

10.5 mpg with a 35ft diesel pusher towing a Harley trailer. We keep the speed to about 63mph. Why hurry?

We have a 27ft Sunrise. We have kept track for the past 50,000+ miles (give or take a few) and we have averaged just about 12 mpg. We do not pull anything, just the motorhome by itself, sometimes two bikes on the back. After the Check Engine light indicate a faulty oxygen sensor and that was replaced, we went back up to 12 mpg.  We have been pleased with that.

Keep in mind that the 12 mpg Canadian, is more like 10 mpg US gallons!

Having kept detailed records for our '99 Winnie 32'; our experience is pretty close to that of Elly. i.e.  11.31 mpg Canadian = 9.42 US mpg.

We haven't actually checked ours yet, but the on-board computer says we're getting 7-8 mpg depending on how we're driving.  I have a heavier foot but drive smoother than my DH and I've had it say that I was getting 8.3mpg!  Now, he doesn't drive as fast and the most he's seen is 8.1mpg.  When we finally take a nice long trip we will actually check it between fill-ups and see if the computer readout is correct. ;D

On my 1995 Brave with a 454, i am getting 10 MPG. Its all in how you drive and how much weight your carrying around.

Our 2005 Suncruiser 35A W24, quoting the Actia dash readout, I've seen "1 mpg" (going up I70 to the Eisenhower tunnel) and "39 mpg" (going down I70 after the Eisenhower tunnel) :)   All in all, my best guess is somewhere around  7-8 mpg.

350 hp Cummins- 40 ft. Vectra.   Bought used, but readout sez since new it has averaged 6.5 mpg.  I'd really like to improve that, but our single trip averages have not gone over 7.1.  Hubby does have a heavy foot.
