I hope you find what you are looking for however you mentioned in your reply to me that the diesel will get better fuel mileage.

Diesels get the same as gas units between 7-8 mpg and no better. Now if you are set on diesel go for it and I'm not telling you what to get but since I have been rving since 1989 and have seen all kinds of rv's and talked to all sorts or rv owners I figured I would give you some of my knowledge.

By all means get what you like and I wish you the best of luck with it.

I'm not doubting your experience nor your opinion but I've read many, many reports about diesel RVs being more economical and with my gas vs. diesel experiences I would tend to think so. It's not just the mileage that makes me lean to diesel either, but the fact that I'll end up in the mountains more often than not so the ability to pull steeper grades easier will be a plus also.
I appreciate the replies and I would take your advice and jump on a gas RV if the absolute right deal popped up.
