RE: 400 mile electric RV

Yep, in order for BEVs to be GREEN the vehicle must be charged using clean electricity. Sorry, but the "greenest" thing on your list (hydro) actually doesn't count as a green, renewable, sustainable energy source in WA according to Fuhrer...I mean Governor Inslee's i937. According to Inslee, the physics of evaporation and condensation are not renewable. But it's not political, right?

RE: Chevy V8 vs Ford V 10

More cylinders means more pollution and more pumping losses and so poorer fuel economy for two similar displacement gas engines. This is incorrect in my experience; of the three RVs I've owned in the past 25 years, my current rig is the biggest and heaviest with the largest engine and the most cylinders (V10 vs V8s.) The V10 gets by far the best mileage of my 3 despite being by far the heaviest and physically biggest rig, and being driven much harder (because it can handle it.) There is much more to mileage and pollution than displacement or number of cylinders. I'm sure my lawn mower pollutes more than my 2019 V10 RV does.

RE: Chevy V8 vs Ford V 10

I am basically the opposite; typically a "Chevy Man" but purchased a brand new C in 2019 with the V10 because we knew (or thought at the time) 2019 would be the last year for the V10 (and if COVID hadn't happened it probably would have been.) I wanted the V10 because of its long-term proven reputation in class C, especially with the 6 speed. Also Ford class C outnumbered Chevy by a wide margin. My wife and I each daily-drive Tahoes, we own a 3/4T Chevy pickup, and traded in a Chevy Class C on our Ford; so we are very familiar with Chevy V8 (and still love them.) But zero regrets with the V10 in our C. 20k so far with no issues and if it's half as reliable long-term as people say we will be very happy. That all said, I have zero experience with the Chevy 8.1. You probably can't go wrong either way, Ford V10 or Chevy. Both are well proven. The newer Ford 7.3 may be great, but I've been on this forum long enough to remember the guys bragging about their new 6.0 and 6.4 Fords.
