This is always a fun and interesting debate that every so often re-occurs when someone just getting into RV'ing will ask that darn question "DP vs. Gas" and we're off to the races! LOL. What I don't hear too many folks comment on though is to go over the house part of the rig as equally as diligently as recommended for the chassis end. Too many RV's of all types are used as winter or summer homes, hence they will show very little mileage. But what you can't tell by the odometer is how often the whole damn family shows up with their version of "Uncle Eddy" with a pack of dogs and 8 or 9 youngins, cramming 14 people into an RV made to sleep 4

We don't have a pull out or a booth, in-fact we can't legally have other passengers. No seat belts on the only other seating.

Our favorite line is. Our ride (boat or rv), can "entertain 16, feed 4, and sleep 2" ... worked so far.

Motorized rvs aren't held to the same passenger vehicle seatbelt laws.

This topic has been beat to death on several forums. The only conclusion to come from them is that some people are happy with a gas coach and some have to have a diesel to make them happy. We have had three gas MH's and the last five have been diesels. We were happy in each of them and the camping experience gave us fun memories. It all started with a used 32' Southwind and now we are in a 44' DP that pulls a 26' enclosed trailer with more toys in it. Couldn't do that with a gas. As far as used vs new, the last six MH's have been new. We just prefer our own dirt to someone else's and we like the reliability of new. My advise to the OP is to buy the floor plan you like and if the DP price tag doesn't affect your lifestyle or pocket book go for it. Just don't tie yourself to years of monthly payments.

Exactly. I believe only the driver and passenger seats require seat belts and not even shoulder belts. But I could be wrong too.

I was told that there had to be a seat belt for each sleeping position. We have places to sleep 4 and 4 seat belts.
