Maintenance Cost Estimate - XCS

The new Winnebago Forza/Itasca Solei motorhomes come with a 340 hp Cummins ISB on a Freightliner XCS chassis. What could one expect for annual maintenance costs. We'd likely log less than 10,000 miles each year, maybe around 7,000.

Got an older 1999 National RV Tradewind and just took it in for a bumper to bumper LOF and got an invoice for $ 1400.
Pretty reasonable if I say so

We spent $3500 last year in maintenance; that includes 2 wax jobs, replacing a slide topper, 25k mile diesel servicing & a few other incidental repairs

I do a oil,2 fuel filters, lube and gen oil,fuel filter every January. My Brother n law is a mobil repair so he comes to the house.5-6 hundred bucks also the first year changed rear end oil. Plus a tranny filter. On the third year the air filter needed changing the second tranny filter And the filter in the air brake system (can't think of what its called) also a hyd. filter. All in all I'd say $1000 to 1200 a year average if some one else does the service. Mine is a 06 journey 350 cat. At 7 years changed the tires $4000. This year did the service plus air filter and changed the radiator fluid and the plastic tank (prone to cracking) on top of radiator. $800 plus the service. I bought a diesel because that is what I wanted but you better have a fat wallet to own one. Still love ours and would buy another one.

We only put about 3000 mi a year on our unit so for a lube, oil, oil filter, & fuel filters at a local diesel repair shop it runs around $250.

You are talking about the Cummins 6.7ltr engine which has a very reasonable maintenance schedule. Now the Allison tranny is another thing. Just follow the manufactures maintenance schedule for time first and miles second, unless you put a lot of miles on your MH. If you change the oil and oil filter yearly you would only be helping the engine. I would only use 100% synthetic (AMSOIL only for me) that includes the filter. Yes it cost but to me it's worth it. Fresh oil at the beginning or end of the season is good for the engine.
As the old FRAM commercial use to say "You can Pay me now or You can Pay me later"
I have heard that you may average maybe $750 Diesel and about $500 Gas a year depending on your use. That doesn't include tires at the 5-6 year point.

I had the 6 month & 1 year service completed at the same time, missed the 6 month service on the new Winnebago. Most likely most people will miss the 6 month on a new unit because the unit may be over 6 months when you actually take possession of it. The service was completed by Frieghtliner in Gaffney SC & the cost was $650. You can add some other cost to your yearly maintenance like cleaning, black tank conditioner, ect, however you will have these even on a gas unit. $1000 a year budgeted for maintenance should leave you with some money in the bank at the end of the year to help out with the occasional big ticket items.
