My everyday vehicle

I am planning to downsize to a Class B. I also want to use it as my day to day vehicle. Because I am going to use it as a primary vehicle I was told to go with a diesel engine. Any though, opinion, or advice? Thank you

I can't think of a good reason to get a diesel, unless your daily miles driven are high enough to warrant the extra cost in exchange for long engine life.

The vehicle will be for everything, day to day and road trips. This will cut down on insurance, tag, maint, etc. As of now, we are interesting in the Leisure Free Spirit or the Serenity. I like more the Free Spirit.

I have a Class B and love it. I decided on a Winnebago ERA 24' and take it everywhere.
It is my first Diesel engine, and I'm really glad I bought it. Good luck...you'll make the right decision !!

The Sprinter based diesels are really nice. We had a Class C on the Sprinter chassis and we loved it. Great fuel mileage (16 to 19mpg)

Good Luck and enjoy
