    If you aren't planning on driving long distances I don't think the mpg should be a limitation. For example, we might do 3,000 miles on a trip at typically 32 mpg. Alternatively, if we only got 16 mpg then we could probably still have had a good trip only doing 1,500 miles and spent the same amount on fuel, or even just 1,000 miles at around 10 mpg which is perhaps what that RV might do at a guess. :)

    I would investigate converting to LPG if it was a vehicle i was interested in
    As DBK says if you are not planning long trips its not an issue
    Check for damp etc as usual
    RVs are built as well as other motorhomes!!!

    I know it’s a bit different but back in the day I used to run a Camaro with a 5.7 lt engine with an auto box.
    If I took it steady she would return around 21 to the gallon.
    I know your pulling a lot more weight but a light foot can help :)

    More likely a 7.5 on a ford that age and size, f350, 8 to 10 mpg.

    Looks like loads of MH for the money Bill (y)

    I am really surprised it isn’t already converted to run off lpg, you might get lucky and find it is :)

    If not too bad with damp and presuming it is genuine, I am wary of odd locations they make classic scans as they can’t easily be viewed, it looks a good find

    MPG irrelevant IMO as said possibly just plan to do less miles (y) until your numbers come in that is :)

    ok. I saw the non runner bit and that it was a straight forward job (I believe) for you to fix thought you might get a bargain. However, I understand your point about health. That must come first.
