Thanks for all your responses. We were going from Ohio to Michigan to Canada, the route was mostly flat, Since I can only do 50-55mph that assisted in my mpg I would guess. When I was on the twisty and hilly road in Canada we might go up a few hills at 30mph and I would shift down to 3rd. On the route home, I took the Toad off and that section of road was much easier to traverse.

The FC31 has a super short wheel base and made the 7 mile trek into the bush pretty easily, my aunt and uncles class C made it also. I am pretty sure airing up the bags on a 45' newell and going slow it could make it back to the camp site. They were doing construction while on a dam while we were camping and dump trucks kept driving on the road, which made it better on the way out.

This trip was out 2nd trip this year and made me really want a new coach. Mine is loud when driving, also I have to move stuff every night to get the kids ready for bed as we only have 2 beds and the girls have to sleep different directions on the same bed so we inflated a king coil on the floor, which made me move my recliner to the kitchen. The amount of stuff I have to move around everyday in my bus makes it really hard on me, its like a game of tetris inside.

I know it's not a Newell, but it should get you anywhere you want to go.
