About Fuel Requirements For 10 years now,
we've been telling people they "should" run premium fuel in
their Eurovans...note we've been saying "should" not "must."
Why? The bottom line is fuel economy. If you run premium fuel
in your Eurovan, you will get better gas mileage. I (Chris)
have done experiments while on various trips, and while running
the lowest grade fuel in the vehicles, I've experienced up to
a 38% decrease in my MPG. Yes, you read that correctly.
Eurovans have an Electronic Control Module computer that will
adjust the engine to help maintain the best performance based
on the quality of fuel in the tank. The use of premium is recommended
for these engines to achieve top performance and fuel economy,
but it is definitely not required.
Life Surprisingly, there are no guidelines to when
a tire should be replaced. The most qualified study is from
the British Rubber Manufacturers Association (BRMA). They recommend
unused tires should not be put into service if they are over
six years old and that all tires currently on a vehicle should
be replaced ten years from the date of their manufacture. This
is the practice we follow.
Now, A Little Info
Here is what Winnebago says about their product...With beauty,
brains, power, and a whole lot more, there's a certain pleasure
in owning something that is superbly designed. Even from the
outside, it differs markedly from other motor homes. The Rialta
is incredibly fuel efficient and measures in at a very maneuverable
21 feet. Its sleek, aerodynamic lines and softly rounded contours
please the eye, reduce drag and help quiet the interior. But
don't let Rialta's size fool you. Inside, you'll find it has
plenty of room for comfortable living. And, as a full-featured
Class C motor home, it's loaded with the same kind of creature
comforts and conveniences found in vehicles nearly twice its
size: microwave, shower, toilet, generator, sink, stove, refrigerator,
and more! And here is what we say at Rialta Heaven...Thank you
Winnebago...The ageless sculpted exterior...the flowing and
spacious interior... the... the... OK... OK! Forget the good
looks and the incredible versatility, let's consider the current
prices and gas mileage of anything of similar size and power!
You will find it will cost you two or three times the price
of our like new Rialtas. The late model Rialtas were originally
sold for about $70k US Dollars. Now for about half the price,
or less, you can hit the open road in endless style aboard one
of these incredible machines. And remember, the only thing better
than buying a green RV, is buying a used green RV... They're
not electric, but they are as about as green as an RV gets!
The Rialta has always been a favorite of savvy travelers because
of its size, maneuverability, engine performance and incredible
gas mileage (18-22mpg). It's not big and cumbersome like other
RVs, and has all the amenities that you could ask for...shower,
toilet, bed, furnace, A/C, generator, stove, sink, microwave,
110v power, etc. They generally will fit into your driveway
and some carports and garages as well! It's a step up in style
and class from the smaller cramped Campers like the Roadtrek
or small Sprinters, and a wonderful step down into cozy comfort
from the big gas guzzling RVs. We hope that we can help you
into one of these great Campers, and onto the road of adventure!
