We be po-folks. Old RVs sell for under $10,000, on average, with under 100K. That's why I bought my 1999 $2200 bus with 163K miles, and converted it myself.

If I wanted a turn-key RV, I would be interested in yours for $12,000. Not trying to beat you up, just being real...

Nice to see you get 10mpg with the 5-speed MD3060. I have the 4-speed AT545, and get 10mpg in my 5.9L Cummings. After a cross country trip at 2500 RPM, I'm thinking a $5000-$6000 investment in a 5-or-6 speed would get me maybe 18mpg at 1600RPM, and pay for itself in a few years at that rate in fuel savings, plus less wear and tear on the motor...
