I was looking last night at the Adventurer 2010 brochure,on the Winne web site,and in the specs,they list the diesel fuel tank as a 40 gallon tank,and the gassers still have the 75 gallon.I wonder if that was a mis-print?

Drive one before you buy it. I have seen complaints about noise (mostly engine), ride, and handling.

Compared to a pusher chassis, a front diesel is noisy. Compared to a front gas engine in the same coach, not much difference. If you had an older (10 years or so) gas chassis and moved up to a new front diesel, you would probably find it an overall improvement in noise and heat.
