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.

Todays gas coaches are very well powered,and come on heavier chassis w/ bigger tires & wheels.

If I was a full timer I would have a diesel coach, for long range dependability, but mainly for the extra room offered by the 4th slide. To my knowledge there isn't a 4 slide gas coach out there. I certainly wouldn't buy a diesel primarily for the extra weight I could handle because I already carry too much stuff as it is.

As a previous post said when you factor the $30,000 plus extra for the diesel, and the roughly 40 cents more a gallon in fuel; it will take along time to recoup those expenditures.

I have a gas coach but we only drive , on average, 6000 miles a year. It handles all I have asked it so far!!!!!
