I always smile when I'm asked about mpg, so I'll reserve comment.

To answer your question, I've tracked every mile and every gallon of gas. 9.6 is the average. That includes cruising a thousand miles down the interstate at 70 mph and crawling all day through canyons and across mesas. On my recent trip to the San Raphael Swell in Utah, we spent 3 days traveling only about 180 miles per day. And those were sun up to sun down days that include leaving the engine idling for long periods of time as we enjoyed the canyons and the climbs. (Side note: What a great place with 2000 sq mi of off-road to explore.)

1der is correct: It's about the smiles not the miles.

Thank you. Trying to get an idea what these get in terms of mpg.

I am serious of purchasing one but this one is about 30% more than what I am willing to spend right now unfortunately. Love the rig.

I do not see a heater inside the van, or maybe I missed it?

Looks like the quintessential advertisement for what we'd all like have in the drive

: ) and perfectly timed as we're about to abandon our driveway.



Your timing for selling is jusssst about as good with with us on a house ...


Total 'tire kicking ' mode here <grin>

How is the suspension holding up? Brakes?

Are there any or many sign of rust?

How's the roof holding up?

Is there anything that might red flag a state safety or emission inspection?

If you could change anything on this rig, what might that be?



Thanks for sharing.
