Just a general question as contemplating purchasing a Class A diesel. We now have a gas engine and would like to know pros and cons for diesel.

Basically, a diesel, while it costs more, gets about 25-30% better mileage than a gas engine, it has better torque for pulling steep climbs, it is more dependable than a gasoline engine because it is simpler, and, finally, because the chassis must be much heavier to carry a diesel, the coach carrying weight is higher. Up until the last couple of years, I would have said that diesel fuel is much cheaper, but that is no longer the case. If you can afford it, by all means, go with a diesel. You will be happy.
