How Much Does It Cost To Replace A Gas Engine In a Motorhome?

by Anonymous

We just bought a Class C Motorhome (Bigfoot with 4 wheel drive) with a Ford V10 engine that needs replacement. What might we expect to pay for the replacement including parts and labor?

ANSWER: Thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.

This is one of those questions that I dread answering because there is no accurate answer to it. I am going to assume that you are going to replace your existing engine with a rebuilt one.

If you shop around you can probably get a rebuilt Ford Triton V10 for around $3,400 to $3,700 with a core charge of anywhere between $700.00 to $900.00.

Depending on what part of the country you live in and what kind of deal you can wrangle with a repair facility you may end up paying anywhere between $600.00 to $1,100.00 in labor.

I am sorry that I could not be more accurate than this, but a lot of the cost is going to depend on where you live and how good you are at negotiating prices with people.

NY, NY looking to purchase and fix

My comment is more like a question since you know a lot about what I need to find out.

I found a 1992 Fleetwood Southwind on Craigslist in New York, but...it does not run. Engine seized Now, I can get up the money for the purchase, but to find an engine to replace here in NYC, that will cost more than I can afford. Can the engine be rebuilt, by someone who knows how to work on them, or is it completely gone?
