Bubble Top Van vs Roadtrek Style Gas Mileage
« on: April 23, 2016, 02:15:36 PM »
I just sold my 1995 Pleasure way 19 ft, which got spectacular fuel mileage. It looked the same as the Roadtrek style.

I'm looking at the Bubble top style of the same year. Which has the bed in the bubble top.

Can anyone give me an idea what they consume in fuel with the bubble top style vans of that era?

I believe mine may be a little older then the vans pictured. Gas mileage depends on the weight, engine size, fuel delivery (carb or injected), speed and terrain your driving in. I have a 1991 Ford Econoline Class B Turtle Top, extended van, one ton, 5.8 liter V8, port injected, 7000 Lbs empty. I get between 12 and 15 MPG with an a light load keeping under 65 MPH and 8 MPG loaded down with camping gear a luggage carrier on top and towing a 2000 Lb. trailer.
