Aug 13, 2012 · Currently looking at used class A motorhomes. I have heard arguments both ways regarding the Ford V10 engine vs. the Chevrolet 8.1-litre with the Allison transmission. Could you please let me know your thoughts? Now looking at 2005 Allegro Bay with Chevy setup, Should I be leery? What about power... I have a friend who has a 440 powered '74 Winnebago class C motorhome. The engine is tired and needs a re-build, burns LOTS of oil. He has a fairly decent 440 laying around that he could freshen up and drop in (to save on downtime) but the guy at the truck repair shop that he brought it to told him that it will absolutely not interchange, the engines are totally different.

What is a Class A Motorhome: Class A motorhomes are at the top of the list when it comes to luxury, style and performance in the RV world. Units range in weight from 15,000 to 40,000 pounds and stretch from 28 to 45 feet in length. Class A motorhomes are perfect for people wanting to travel long distances for extended periods of time.
if thats the 8.2:1 compression engine you might want to try and get that up about 1 point. that would help quite a bit. those 440 engines in the motorhomes are tanks and they are hard to hurt. im not sure about the dodges of the times but the late 70's ford's all had retarded timing sets. you put in a straight up timing set and it would really wake them up too.
