The Gas Mileage of Class C Motorhomes

by Kimberly Turtenwald

Class C motor homes offer the advantage of more space than the Class B motor homes without the poor gas mileage of the Class A motor homes. They weigh less than the larger motor homes while still giving your family plenty of room to enjoy your vacation.

Class C Gas Mileage

The gas mileage of Class C motor homes will vary by each brand and model. However, gas mileage typically ranges from 6 to 14 miles per gallon.

Effects of Driving Habits

Keeping your speed down is one way to improve your gas mileage. Making sure your tires are properly inflated and that your motor home is not overloaded will also help to improve your overall gas mileage.

Keep It Clean

Keeping up with regular maintenance of your RV will help keep it running cleaner. This, in turn, helps keep your gas mileage in the upper ranges, helping you to get the most out of your gas money.
