Help with buying a used RV

I now have a 99 winnebago adventure 33ft and I'm thinking about going to a diesel, and the price range I want to be in the most popular is the 2002 Holiday Rambler Endeavor 330hp Cummins w/2 Slides - D815, does any one out there have one of those or knows about it, if so please let me know what kind of mpg you get, how is the ride, is it noisy, does it have any major problems with the power train or any other components, and do you guys think its worth trading my rv for a diesel pusher for mpg and a better ride and less noise and heat in the front? Thank you all, Joe.

What mpg do you get now? The diesel will likely be a about 15% better in an identical coach, but you are moving to a heavier coach and that will eat up some of the gain.

Pushers are quieter in the driver seat, but noisier on the outside or back in the bedroom. Dittom for heat - cooler up front but hot in the bedroom.

Strictly on a cost basis, it is NOT worthwhile to trade gas for diesel. but you will ove it if you do it. Ride should also improve with the 8 airbag Roadmaster chassis under it.
