<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Originally posted by 35u01:
I had the same questions when we bought our first RV in 2001. we went with the Winnebago adventurer 35ft U and it was gas with basement air. We loved it and were very happy with the power (had the workhorse chassis with 8.1 L gm engine). We tow a honda crv. We traveled our west for 6 wks and the coach was great and so was the basement air. What I found was that if you were going to put 1000's of mile on it , the diesel would last longer than gas and ride was to be better etc. buT to me at the time, the extra 30- 40 ,000 was not worth it. With that said, we just bought a 2005 Monaco Knight diesel !!!! We fould a floor plan that we "just had to have" !!! and it only came in the 40 ft knight and in a diesel. The ride is better (but not worth the price change since we are not full timers and dont use it that much), the power is much more(but did we reaLLY NEED IT??), The ride is much more quiet since engine is in back. I think it really depends on what your plans are re number of miles you expect to put on the Rv, how long you expect to keep it, what you want to spend, how many slides you want, how big you want and what you want to pull. Not that i was of much help to you but I think it really is a personal choice Good luck with your decision. Check back with me in a year and I can tell you what I think then !! </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
