Help me narrow down an RV


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I'm new here and I've looking at Class B RVs with Mercedes Sprinter and Dodge setup.

The biggest concern for me is MPG. Second is reliability.  

Here are a few other things I'm looking at:

- Bathroom

- Kitchen

- Interior height (I'm 6'2")

- Sleep 2 adults


I am seeing real world results of the Sprinter are not much better than the Dodge, even though some websites claim it gets 20-25 mpg.. I have yet to see someone in the forums say they get that much.  I basically just want a comfortable RV that won't be a pain to maintain or stay in for extended periods (2-3 weeks at a time).

We got 18-20 mpg in our Sprinters. Dave is 6'2" tall and his hair would move when he walked under the A/C in our class Bs. He was uncomfortable being that close to the ceiling so we moved into a Sprinter-based Class C to have more room. When he stopped traveling, I went back to a Class B Sprinter for snowboarding solo. Our Class Bs were 2008 (Dodge then) and 2012 purchases. The only time we spent in a shop was for regular maintenance and once when my diesel heater stopped working properly. Oh, and to put solar panels on the Class C.

We have a 2022 Winnebago Travato 59K. It has all that you described.  It’s a twin bed layout.  I usually carry a tank full of water(20 gal)) and my gas mileage is 16 to 19 mpg.  It’s built on a RAM Promaster chassis. We are very happy with the flexibility a class B provides use while traveling. We spent 5-weeks in it on a trip to Glacier NP last summer. Check us out at www.RubysWindingRoad.com

I hope this helps
