A-37 diesel questions

Looking at ebay item #120994218643. What king of fuel mileage can you expect from this 400hp diesel motor home? What do think about it being all electric? How well do they handle? Hadn't really considered a motor home, but this one has my attention.

A very nice unit as long as you are not going to boondock.

I'm not sure that all electric would be a problem boondocking in this case. It has a very nice generator-battery-inverter system that I believe would take care of your boondocking needs with no problem. If I'm all wet, feel free to tell me so.

When you boondock, you do so to get close to nature. Listening to, and smelling, the generator run 24/7 is not what I envision.
I like that quiet propane energy for the fridge and stove when the sun doesn't shine.

If it was hot out, and you were off grid, and running the ac and the fridge, and any other electrical, the gen would be running non stop. And what if it failed? You would have no backup.

And I cry everytime I have to buy 4 x T105's now. I am not sure what this A37 electric would require for batteries.
