Exclamation Anyone know of class c diesel other than Ford or Mercedes?

Ford diesels and gas V10 engines are scary. I'm looking to buy a class c 26-30' with a reliable engine. All Mercedes class b that I've seen are too small.
The only Cummins powered seem to be the Seneca class; too heavy and expensive.
Appreciate if you have a good alternative in mind.

I think you'll find the V10 problems were only a few years, 1999-2001? The problem seems to be solved after that point.

As for the diesels, same drill, I think you'll find he only issues were with the 2002 - 2004 models.

I have a friend with 2006 Power Stroke equipped truck, it's got 250k hard miles on it, he's never done anything to the motor but oil changes.

I have a 2005 E450 with V10 I have no problems with it. It pulls hills like nothing I have had before. I installed a complete Banks Kit. No real help with miledge but the power increase is incredible. The engine is smooth as glass. Torgue peak is around 2500 2700 for the banks kit. Max hp around 4500.I get between 6.5 n 8.5mpg depending on load and speed. Runs 70mph with no problem even draggin a Toad.

What size were you looking for? Seems most Diesel Class C's are in the 24 foot range for the smaller, less bulky, ones.. Based on the Sprinter
