We are not interested in a gas model because we are planning to full time for about five years, so the possibility of piling on the miles is quite good. Another advantage of the DP is the torque available when climbing mountainous regions (we live out west and almost every highway takes us over steep grades). We're also leaning more toward a tag...it gets extremely windy out west and tags handle better in high winds. And did I mention we will be hauling our toad AND a 1000 lb Goldwing motorcycle? We don't want anything less than 400hp, but would prefer 500, if reasonably priced. Have we driven one? No, but we've driven many. Yes, we've researched, but until we pull the trigger, we will continue to research and ask questions on this forum. :-)
Great choice! I own a DSDP 4024 and have nothing but praise for it.
I don't believe it's available with a tag though.

You might look at PPL Motors - they have 2004 Essex with 3 slides.

Good luck with your search!!
