This thread is getting boring so I hope I can take the "instant email notification" off.

Bottom line, buy what you want and enjoy it! If you aren't happy with a gasser, then go out and buy a DP .

Exactly. If your happy with your gasser , don't worry about it when people tell you DPs are better.

The funny thing....................this thread shouldn't exist. Questions yes, inquiring minds yes, even rational comparisons. But dribble, insulting insinuations, and my ********* is bigger and better than yours. Really? And what's truly amazing is,,,,it just doesn't stop. See ya'll on the road. My gasser is fine. Better than fine. I think I'll name it Tony the Tiger.

Instead of reading drivel like this thread, you shoud be out looking at and test driving different rigs. Both gas and diesel.
A word of advice, IMO the floor plan is more important than the powerplant.
Just my 2c.

Yup. When you get a great MH at a great price and the floorplan sux, well, that sux. BTW, if we don't read all the dribble, what would we do with all our time? Hehehehe.

Did gas for 13 yrs.....done with gas. On a lighter note for all of you that are happy with your gasser and think some DP owners are just being snooty...Well, just remember this...People with their nose in the air, can't see you peeing on their feet.... :0

^^^^^ I'm really trying to get my brain around that statement. That, my friend, is deep. Must contemplate. In the meantime, I feel the urge to go pee!!!!!

Not some, every DP owner I've met so far. Anything less than a DP, whether it's a 5'er, TT, Pop-up, Class C or Class A gasser, is inferior.
The posts I've read on this forum appear to support that as well. But, thanks for the peeing on the foot idea!
I've done gassers for 20+ years. I like doing my own services, and not paying $200 for an oil change, etc. Plus, no valve adjustment needed.

The Truth about Diesel Pushers - WoW some news!

There are no underlings/overlings in RVing! And there are no bad or inferior RVs. We can't unsnoot those that snoot, nor admire those that treasure pomp over circumstance!
A guy rode his bike into camp today. Tenting. Happy. Self sufficient. He has 4 months to discover whatever he wants. He rides an RV that he prefers over all others. It's how I started RVing!

I know folks that F/T with teardrop trailers, B vans, on and on.

Go for it! And may the Journey be your Destination

This is my first post starting all o this!

IIf you'll read this post you'll notice this all started as a "tongue in cheek" look at the meaning of Diesel Pusher?

Here is my first post in case you didn't read it 300 posts ago!

Quote:

It’s a common belief that the term “Diesel Pusher” is because the diesel engine is in the back of the coach and the diesel pushes the motorhome forward. This is a nice story like "Mary had a little lamb", but like so many stories is simply untrue, a myth if you will.

As near as historians can tell the term “Diesel Pusher” started in Tuscaloosa, Alabama when the city mayor bought a diesel motorhome. On it’s maiden voyage it broke down in the middle of main street Tuscaloosa. A couple locals, graduates from the University of Alabama School of Engineering, walked over to help and were overhead saying, “It broke down, lets Pusher”!

Still other historians insist the term started in Brownsville, Texas when a drug lord purchased a motorhome for nefarious activities. His name quite coincidently was Diesel, hence the name “Diesel Pusher”!

Please don’t ask what historians say about the word “Gasser”? I'd have to direct you to a different forum!

Now that we have “Diesel Pusher” in its proper context, I have a serious question.

I was having new tires put on my SUV yesterday and a guy was talking about a diesel truck he had and that he’d never own another one. When asked why, he said something or other happened to it and it cost $13,000.00 to fix it. He said if the same thing happened to his gas engine he could have replaced the whole darn thing for half of that.

I know from posts on this and other forums something going wrong on a DP can be very expensive. Do folks factor that in when thinking about diesel vs gasser?
if you read the last two paragraph you'll notice the question isn't about "BIGGER or BTTER, Diesel or Gasser", it's about "COST of Ownership"

That said, as we get all hoody-snoody with each over. I ask you this; would you help a guy or gal in a diesel pusher? Would you help a guy or gal in a gasser? You know the answer is YES. So why not just leave it there. As helpful friends who love RVing!!!
