Class C Motor Home V10

Post  Tore on September 26th 2016, 6:46 pm

Any of you guys tow a trailer with a Class C with a V10? I know they suck gas but how are they power wise going down the Highway or power pulling hills. I tow about 9000 pds now with my 2012 F350 and you don't even know its back there. So I will be towing my 9000 car and trailer.
Appreciate any input. Thanks Tore

Tore,Dan's BIG motorhome has that v10 power plant. It does very well. Talk to him.

I pull a 30 ft trailer with my 2000 F250 with zero problems. I get 9.3 mpg and no power issues. Sorry I know this is about the RV capacity.

What I might do is bring the car and trailer over to the place and hook on and see how it does.
Tks for the replies.

I pull my 24' with a 2003 DynaMax CarriGo 23footer, V-10. Absolutely love it. It's got 68k miles - and the air cond. works. WAAY better trip to the Bash this year, and I don't think the mileage was any worse than the old barge with the 460.

Will be keeping an eye on this thread as well. I would like to get a motorhome myself at some point. It would be nice to be able to go down to the track the night before a weekend event, and it would surely beat spending the night in a hotel.

I pulled my 26' vintage enclosed (8500 lbs loaded )for 25 years with this

460 with a C6 , the mountains to race at Mission BC were exciting !! we were 21000 lbs rolling down the road . Nothing better than having a nice for a snooze or a hot shower on a weekend of racing and a place to sleep after having beers with the bud's and not have to worry about getting a DUI on the way to the motel!

Slick ole rig you got there Frank... the ole retro motor homes and trailers are starting to be a big deal... guess the old cars and boats have played out.

Good bit of power difference between the two valve V10 and the three valve version.
