But Cummins advertises there are more diesel motorhomes with Cummins engines than all other diesels engines combined. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

It's more than advertising. Their 8-k reports to SEC indicate the same thing. Here is last public report i.e.not yet in 8 k.
__________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ ______________________

In the Company's Engine business, gains in many markets - most notably in
the light-duty automotive, medium-duty truck, construction and mining markets
- propelled the segment to a 17 percent sales increase compared to the same
period last year. That increase came despite continued weakness in the North
America heavy-duty truck engine market related to emission regulation changes.
The industry forecast for trucks in that market is now approximately 180,000
units for the full year 2007, down almost 50 percent from 2006.

Even though this market is down significantly from the prior year, the
Company continues to gain market share, reflecting customer preference for
Cummins' emissions-compliant products. Through August, the Company held a
market-leading 36 percent share of the North America Class 8 truck engine
market, compared to 27 percent at the end of 2006.
The last figure I seen for motor homes was near 60% market share


Maybe more important to the posters original question is the JD Power award last week of highest customer satisfaction in Vocational applications which are the toughest on engines. The survey covered performance, cost of ownership and warranty.
