Trip report/Tires

Hello every one. Here is a Report on a Trip i Just took. This was from The Kern River Valley,CA to LaRue,TX,(East TX) and back. 2005 Coachman Concord 275ds on a 2004 E450 V10 4speed. Tires: Corsa Highway Terrain Plus. I here you all ready, but here me out. all give stats first. 3 polyester + 2 Steel + 2 nylon Tread. 3 Polyester sidewall. 2470LBS duel rating. So why those tires? The RV was slated to be sold. The Firestones that were on it were old and not holding air. It had sat for a few years. I took it out for a test run to Great Basin National Park. One of the duels would not hold air, had to buy a cheapy to get home. So Americas Tire(Discount) had those for $91. Guy said alot of oil field guys bought them. Ive worked the field in Bakersfield/Kern, its rough on tires. Tire were great in the rain, maybe a little loud on some concert. They tracked good( well as good as a E-serise twin beam can). As of now I plan on keeping them for at-lest 2 years. I do recommend them especially if you think you are going to sell it latter on. I they were made in Indonesia. On to the rest. Roads SR178 to US395 to SR58 to I15 to I40. Then in New Mexico I took US84 down to I20 Then US175 the Rest. Went the same way home. There are some miscellaneous miles also. 3227.6Miles 398.663 Gallon of gas, put 45.85hr on the Generator (onan 4000) I ran 70mph as much as i could. Got 8.09MPG. Pretty happy with all that, especially when compared to my old G30 RV I had. I Was surprised on the weight. I took it through a CAT scale with full water and fuel, me my wife and 6year old boy and all our stuff.I had just dumped the holding tanks too. Front 4240 (4600) Rear 9280 (9450) Total 13520 (14050) Only 170lbs left on the rear. Water and fuel tank are behind rear axle. not much tongue weight for my 6x10 enclosed trailer. There will be an update to this next April. Should have new bilsten on all 4 corners plus the stabilizer and 5 star tuner.
