Being that we can't find the perfect fit (high style, quality, and bunks) we are going to need to compromise for now and trade up later.
Do we still go after a diesel pusher or go for gas and save money since this will be stationary most of the time? (around 12K miles a year)
And I prefer used because I hate paying depreciation
A used low mileage gas coach will cost much less in the beginning and in the long run as well, with 12K miles/yr travel, unless you must have a 45ft length and four slides, maybe. Then just go older and stick with quality, always. Sound engineering always beats newness, in any price range and you will find that most complaints come from the newer low line RV's and not from the tried and proven. Warranties are especially a PITA and like having the initial savings much better.
