Lot's of nice Class A's out there to include the Itasca Reyo which is on the Mercedes chassis and averages 18-20 mpg, kinda like if my 25FB and diesel Touareg had a love child . That Reyo is great size, small enough to get around town and into all the campgrounds but big enough for comfort as it's on that Mercedes platform with the 3.0 diesel engine.
I have tracked mileage specifically on the Mercedes based units for my father and have the owner reported overall averages. The View/Navion-15mpg; the Via/Reyo- 14mpg. I like them too but the number one impressive model to me in smaller rigs, was the Unity B+ MB model by Leisurevan- amazing amenities for the overall size. Just have to set some money aside for all the motors in the motorized stuff. If you can overlook the monkey (just kidding) in the tree, here is the video of the model I am talking about.

I am sure you will like your Solei. The nice thing about it is that it is a new design with the latest features built-in rather than a retrofitted model adding LED or something after the fact.

The Unity in the video is the one we purchased. Towing an aluminum flatbed trailer with a Porsche on it, I got 13.8 MPG. Usual is 15-17 MPG.

As we see in the reply - whatever you drive/tow - that open-road camaraderie never changes.

All the best!

Thanks, and true - we need to always try and assist our fellow travelers, regardless of rig - again, I don't see the comradely on other forums that we have here with Airstream folks, but rest assured - I'll always be available to assist my fellow travelers, just might come to the aid of the Airstream folks just a bit quicker than others...

Wishing you the best, your instincts are usually this right thing--unless a bunch of us are paying your way---the decision is only between you and the lady. Enjoy your new ride, and let us know from time to time, how well you are enjoying it. Roll on.

We've been looking at motorhomes lately, too. But, none of them feel like the cocoons our Airstreams provide. So, for now, we're keeping our Airstream - and wish we had kept our first one, too. One can't have too many Airstreams.

I don't blame you for getting what works for you. At a different time, in a different place in our lives, we may do something similar. For now we'll keep pulling our old 1987 Excella 32 around. She's too big, too heavy, and she sometimes tries to drag her butt on even the slightest driveway hump...but she's ours and paid for, and comfortable and roomy once we get there, so, for now...

I like the Winnie Tribute.
If Airstream is really having GM reproduce the 4104 bus with a Duramax/Allison I will trade the trailer...

No to derail the thread, but I really liked the way they did that video, tons of details and the guy was kinda funny. More companies should produce product videos like this.

Hi, very interesting, but I can picture the passenger reaching down to adjust the seat and deploying the electric awning. Hope there is a safety for that.
