A: Most motorhomes regardless of year and size get 5-10 mpg. The class A motorhome are the lowest while the class C motorhomes are a little higher smaller motorhomes also get the best mileage. There are two exceptions to this. One is Diesel Motorhome often get 10-12 mpg. The other exception is class C motorhomes on Toyota Chassis they can be a little hard to find but deliver 14-16 mpg the trade off is the Toyota chassis uses much, much smaller engines than other makes sacrificing power to deliver better fuel economy. Some Toyota based motorhome owners complain of going very slowly up mountain passes.
