I stumbled across your blog (don't recall how) but I loved it. It is so informative and well written. I even created  a shortcut on my iPad so I could read more.  I was intrigued with your observations on the pacific coast since we may be doing that trip in 2015.  I was very impressed with your writing.  Thanks for sharing your experiences.  I truly admire what you've done and wish we had the courage to try it. Safe searching!

Enjoyed your blog and pics.  What a great experience.  We have visited both North & South rims of the canyon, as well as Zion. Our big adventure was a flight over the canyon in a six passenger Cesna. My first time flying. I think we have given up on the Skywalk.  SOOO many places to see!

When we began our search to downsize from our 30' class A to a smaller class B, we found that our class A gasser did not have the resale value of the smaller units we were looking at.  Granted there were fewer of the class B's to search among as well.  So perhaps you might consider resale value.  This being your first venture, based on most folks it will not be your last.  We tried tent camping, pop up, travel trailer, 2 class B's and finally the class A before ending up with our 2350 PC.   We think it is perfect for two.  Would NOT travel with anymore than just us.  Finally, if you are "traveling" then class A has great views along the road.  Class B's are ok for viewing sights along the road but class C's are obstructed somewhat by the overhang.

Oops.  Got kicked off by weak wifi in the campground and I accidentally posted my update to my mileage saga under a new subject.  Please check gas mileage update for my thanks for the help here.  Something clearly worked!

Sitting in Houlton ME in a nice campground. "My Brothers Place".  Crossing into CA tomorrow for 2 days then down to BAr Harbor and Acadia.  Enjoyed the beautiful fall foliage on the way in, gorgeous.  A special thanks to bgolden for the Fuelio App suggestion.  It is great.  Also thanks to the member whose post I couldnt locate quickly, for the special air filter suggestion.  My husband bought a lifetime air filter (don't know the name) and replaced it, adjusted the tire pressure down to the ratings in the door, not the 80lbs that the guys used when we got our tires rotated & front end aligned.  I am thrilled to report that our last first two tanks on this trip were 10.2 mpg, up from the 8.5 that we got when I started this thread.  Not sure exactly what worked, but we are grateful for the improvement.  Thanks for sharing all the wisdom and experience. 

On another note, after a terrible drive in slow traffic, road construction, we pulled into a Cracker Barrel at 7 pm for a quick meal and free overnight since we were too tired to go to a campground.  Parking lot was empty when we shut down but this morning there was another PC in the lot.  So all the PCs  are inMaine!

Old habits can be good habits as your records indicate Smile.  We just had a front end alignment so only about 30 miles driven on this tank after having that done.  Plan to change air filter prior to leaving for Acadia NP on Sunday. Might look at timing adjustment when we return.  Good info.  Maybe some tweaking will help a bit.
Thanks,
Rose & Earl

Got it Bill.  You have meticulous records there.  Thanks for sharing.  At a glance  there have been times you got some great mpg.  Outstanding! We generally only check our mileage occasionally at the beginning of purchase of a new/different unit to get an idea of how we are doing.  We have only filled the PC 4 times since purchasing in February. My husband was saying maybe we should start keeping a log (that means me Heart Shower).  I'm beginning to think "why worry, we love our PC and traveling to new places no matter what the mileage." I think we will just be cognizant of things we can manage as noted by you folks and then enjoy the trips!
Thanks again.

Thanks Barry Sue.  I think Earl will replace the air filter before we head out.  Always try to watch our speed. Sure would be nice to get 10 mpg, even 9 Cry

Thanks Ron.  Can always count on you to help out on the forum. I guess maintenance means filters and oil, etc. We just changed the oil and only ran the genie for 20 - 30 minutes for maintenance. Husband says he hasn't checked the air filter, so will do that before leaving for Acadia NP this coming Sunday.  I'm guessing with traffic congestion up the east coast things will not improve. We do have the e350 with a slide.  Any other thoughts will be appreciated.
Rose & Earl ThankYou

I'm sure this topic has been discussed at length, but just feel frustrated.  We traded a 30 foot class A for our PC and hoped we would gain at least a little better gas mileage.  Both vehicles have the same Ford e350.  Our class A often got 9 mpgs towing our Ford Escape.  We typically don't go over 65 and are mindful of weight loads.  Have now driven our PC in various conditions, towing and not towing.  Our best mileage todate is 8.5 mpg.  How is it that the same motor on a smaller, more aerodynamic vehicle can't beat a 30 foot long shoebox driven much the same but with a heavier load? Very disappointing. pulling hair out

Welcome to the forum.  Our 2010, 2350 has seat belts in the passenger chair and on the sofa.

This is great.  Just ordered a set.  Thank you for the tip.   I am in SC about an hour away from the company so it is nice to be able to support a local.  I  hated trying to use elastic straps to keep our ill fitting double bed sheets in place. Can't wait for them to arrive.

I did send you a personal reply, but wanted to thank you again for the great information.  It is truly appreciated.  What a great group of folks on this forum.... Smile

We live in SC where almost all our travels start with I-85 to Atlanta or I-26.  My husband refuses to consider any trip that goes through Atlanta.  Can't speak to Birmingham.

Thanks JT.  Just planning ahead and considering where to go and what our next adventure will be.  Good to know access isn't terrible.
