The 45ft Class A Coach has dual turbochargers but then with its 955 CI Cummins developing 650 HP needs it to push 66,000 down the road at highway speed.

2009 Acura RDX 2.3L Turbo. Love the power and decent(24-26 mpg) highway fuel economy. Switching to a taller tire(235/60-18) soon to help with gas mileage.
