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.

We are full timers, and after 2 gas powered MHs we have a diesel now. In my case the mileage is very similar. About 8mpg in all 3. The maintance is much easier on a gas job, particularly if you do it your self. Granted the the diesel is a bigger heavy unit it. I much prefer driving the diesel, not because of the power . It has a better ride and a shorter turning radius. . That being said if I were to go out and buy a new one today I would strongly consider a gas job. We run between 6 and 8000 miles a year so you can easily expect 10 years on a gas job.
