We drive a 40 foot diesel pusher, with the Cummins ISC350; down the road weight is approximately 32K lbs. We tow an Acura TL (on a tow dolly); combined weight is approximately 4000 lbs. We have tracked the mileage since new (2003) and now have a bit over 36K miles on the clock. Since day one, mileage is 8.76 MPG, however over the past twelve months, the mileage is 9.26 MPG. Not being in a hurry, typical highways speed is set by the tach (1600 – 1625 RPM) and we run at 58 – 60 MPH.

Bummer! I was ordering a 2010 Phaeton 40'QTH last week. However, I've been refused financing. Before this poor economy, I wouldn't have had any problems. We may try again next year.

We'll be at the Tiffin plant in Red Bay, AL in a few days for a tour. I'll really get upset when I view all of these Phaeton's, knowing I was real close to ordering one of them. Oh well, my time will come.
