    Ok if you can afford the 7 mpg.

    When it says 2007 is that when it was imported?

    Anywhere that takes our fancy
    You either love em or hate em. We love ours, 7 years and no regrets. Agree on the mpg, we do get about 9mpg that extra 2 makes a lot of difference. I don't think someone with a big 4x4 towing a twin wheel caravan gets much better and I know what I'd go for every time.

    They are thirsty but so comfortable. Ours does 9.5mpg but runs on LPG and our local supplier is 41p per litre so we're happy with that. Could be a good buy for someone if it's all ok otherwise could be expensive. Low miles isn't always a good sign as it could have been left standing which doesn't do RVs any good.

    I think the luxury of a vehicle like that would mean I would forget MPG. It would be painful if touring Europe but for full timing or use within sensible distances WOW what a tool !

    We had a Daybreak with a diesel lovely van very comfortable averaged 11mpg if kept under 60mph.
    Only issue was the size especially the width just made spontaneous travel very difficult.
    Nice van for someone and if you stay in one place for long periods there's nothing better.

    That's an interesting point and I never thought of that but when you look at the interior it does look much older style than 2007.

    We love our too and wouldn't swap for the world and didn't buy it for economy. We travelled all through France last summer in total comfort.

    You get a lot for your money with a yank. As for MPG, Mines settled down to an average 18 mpg and that's with many of the miles lugging a 2 ton trailer.

    Might only be 9 to the gallon but I bet it sounded nice.
