For 10k less than what you listed as price, I got a 1990 Bluebird. TOP QUALITY. I mUCH prefer buying older, and buying best quality. Look older, and go better quality.

Yes, the gas/diesel decision is an important one. We previously had access to a beautiful Revolution LE that was a dream to drive. But 2 times the cost of the gas unit we currently have. For me, I had narrowed the choice down to a $150K diesel or a $75 gas MH.

So I based my decision on how much were we going to use it. Since we only get out 6-8 times a year, and most of those involve less than a 2 hr drive, I decided gas was the way to go. When our MH is sitting idle, it is just a quiet and comfortable as any diesel of comparable size.

When we retire and take real trips of substance, a diesel will be under consideration.

Have a great day and I guess you see what my preference is.
I am sort of in agreement with you. I knew a few basics that I was looking for, but didn't have enough experience to know all the nuances. For starters, a DP was number one priority. We narrowed down to about 3 manufacturers, then down to one. The we decided which floor plans we liked best and started shopping. For us it was 1-1/2 baths with rear master bath, good storage and cabinets, stackable w/d. Everything else was just something we would adapt.
