Re: Newbie Intro & First Question
Hi Rich & welcome to this forum & the small(er) World of Class B.
I'm not sure what a 4.9L converts to, but it sounds like circa. 289 to 300 Cubic inch. And depends on whether it is a Dodge or Chevrolet motor/chassis. - What year model is it?
We have an '02 Chev. RoadTrek 190 Versatile with 5.7 L (350c.i.) motor.
Have put about 26K miles on it in 2yrs we've owned it. Now shows 54k+/-.
We live in Central Arizona and travel all of the Western & midWest States, so do a lot of mountain hi-ways. I often feel that the 350 motor is underpowered for the size & weight of our R/T. And the fuel mileage is not Great. We've gotten as low as 11-mpg & sometimes - maybe 15+! Always at or below speed limits (75 or less). Our plan is to run this one up to about 80K+ miles, then sell it to get into a 6L or larger motor (Ford or Chev).
Best wishes for your Class B hunt. Regards, Ric. in Ariz.
