Been driving diesel trucks and RVs all over the South and Western states for many years, never had any trouble finding fuel. Been around professional over the road drivers all my life, never had, or even heard of, a fire caused by leaking fuel. Not saying it has never happened but it would be a freak accident. There is a reason why all heavy trucks have diesel motors, they can pull the loads better, are extremely dependable and last for millions of miles (literally). With millions of heavy trucks hauling freight all over the country you can find service virtually anywhere. If you want a big coach you will find less choices in gas, if any at all, and you will be sorry if you don't go diesel. IMO. Just sayin. But, as always, everybody should do what makes them happy. Whether it makes sense to anyone else or not.

That's the main reason I do like Diesal motors. The pulling power. I have to agree with you there, a Diesal can pull em like nothing else can. Diesals are what I would use for a very heavy duty job.

Diesal fires do happen. In fact a truck driver had his rig go up in flames right by my house one day. It was an 18 wheeler. It took authorities 2 hours to clear the freeway. So rare yes, but Diesal fires do happen.
