Lpg probably equivalent to 22 mpg
My Concord B Class on an E450 Diesel (300 Hp) chassis genuinely returned early - mid 20's mpg cruising at 50-55 mph. If you are getting so much less mpg then maybe something is wrong and Adi4 should have a look at it ??That ain't making me feel any better!. My Holiday Rambler was only managing around 9mpg and I currently rejoice if I manage 13mpg. I was expecting to make 18mpg with this RV but, no. I do run fully loaded but I cruise at around 90kph.
Congratulations .. and enjoy !! When I first parked the Ace where the Concord parked it looked huge too although they are they same physical length .. you will soon get used to it !!
Well done. You'll soon get used to the size and, when you're mixing it with the real Big Boys, you'll see how small it is really. It's all relative, doncha know!
Blimey, now that's fantasy figures. If I could manage just 20mpg I'd be on Cloud Number 9. My E450 is the 325bhp and it's serviced every year. I guess I've got to get down Weymouth way and let Adi breath over it.My Concord B Class on an E450 Diesel (300 Hp) chassis genuinely returned early - mid 20's mpg cruising at 50-55 mph.

Unfortunately that is a bit of a Monaco trate.......all smooth and then .........bang where did that manhole come from......( or should I say personal access hole )This started out as ‘Ride Comfort’ . .
so, in an idle moment, thinking about that, oh yes, riding on air
in the Monaco after the Daybreak diesel puller was luxury . .
. . however when you hit a low manhole, pot hole or expansion
joint it still loosens your fillings.
Has anyone considered a practical way of converting to shock,
or better, air seats ?

The left hand drive makes it easy to cope. Make sure you adjust the mirrors VERY carefully. From your comfortable driving position, you should be able to see the left kerb in your peripheral vision. Allows you to be inch-perfect in your positioning.
Wow! That sounds interesting. My husband is not happy with the mirrors on our RV-maybe we should get some more added, and a few extra cameras, then my marshalling won't seem so importantThe left hand drive makes it easy to cope.

Mind you I do have 7 mirrors and 6 cameras !!
What engine do you have and what weight are you? I ask because you Mpg figures seem to me to be way over the top for an RV, if I can explain.Olley that sounds a really low amount ! We only have done the one trip so far-but from UK through France to Pinoso in S pain we have averaged 18mpg on LPG-but we used mainly toll roads and put on cruise control at about 55/60mph. But our RV is not a huge although we do have it fully loaded to the 8.1 ton with bike on the back.
I am not sure if this is the right place to put this but we have started a 'blog'-like many other people I think, and we are adding to it each week. So the top one is the last edition and the first one (at the bottom) Is Introducing him & her). If anyone reads it-please remember we are totally new to this way of life and never even had a caravan before-so we have found it stressful at times. From reading this forum I know some people have much larger RV's than us and have been all over the place and done marvellous trips-I hope it a few years we will be the same-but this is our impressions at the time of the experience
so if you do want to read it as a story, work from the bottom up
It is great reading other people's trips and experiences and the advice is always very interesting
