Default Saying hi...

Hey everyone, wandered in here from google looking for considerations when purchasing a class B. I've resided in a stationary 25' Airstream trailer for the past several years and while I haven't made up my mind if I might fulltime in a class B, it does sound like fun.

So you might find me hanging around asking a few stupid questions. I intend to buy used and also have fuel efficiency concerns. Any general advice?

Welcome to the forum Ann. Ask as many questions as you want.

B vans will vary from about 12 mpg to 22 mpg. You should be able find one that does at least 15 mpg.

Ann,

Your in good company. Stupid is stupid so I answer stupid questions. I too started out my RVing life after 40 some years tent camping with a 25 foot Airstream trailer. It too was rather stationary. That's why I got a B.

Welcome and hope you enjoy this board. A lot of nice people here, and best of all we're B lovers. I hung out here a while and finally got our B, so and now I are one. Love it and you will too. No question is dumb, but not knowing the answer is.

hi and welcome. You landed on a great forum. I think some of these folks go out of their way to help and answer questions and are very polite making it a pleasure to be here. It seems everyone knows something special in a variety of areas and gathering our heads together results in answers. I personally do not have the experiance that many here do but even I can answer a question now and then.

It's going to be quite a bit more expensive to purchase, however, if your really serious about higher fuel mileage, you should check out the Sprinter based class B's.

Re buying for fuel economy.I haven't really seen any Sprinters for much less than $40,000 and many nice Class Bs from $10,000 to $30,000.How much fuel can you buy for the difference?
