Default A few questions

Hello all,
Just a few questions from a wannabe:

1. Do all the big pushers, (tag axle types) have roof cranes?
2. Is the 8v92 super charged and turbo charged both?
3. What kind of mileage does the 8v92 give? (Just an average)

Thanks for taking the time to help the rookies!

I rather consistently get 5.3MPG over any trip of a couple thousand miles or more.

Default Thanks

Gents,
Thanks for the info! So, on the roof crane thing, can any Wanderlodge with a roof rack bear the load of one? Or is it a factory option with an extra reinforced infrastructure? - Tom
