GM/Workhorse uses a diesel engine in a Class C motorhome chassis. It's the Duramax. See workhorse.com for details.

Winnebago makes a Class C on a Dodge Sprinter chassis (made in Germany by Mercedes) with a Mercedes diesel --- comes in a Winnebago version or an Itasca Navion version --- each has the choice of two floor plans --- all only in a 23' version, however. I'm getting 15 to 17 mpg with my View --- even WITH a toad.

Also, a BT Cruiser made by Gulf Stream, comes on a Ford chassis with a diesel. Several choices of length and floor plans here.

Gulfstream makes a real beauty - the Endura Max, built on a Chevy Kodiak C5500 medium truck chassis. See GS Endura Max

Thanks for the information. I didn't realize there that many choices. Diesel is my engine of choice.

If you are looking for an older or vintage unit, Scotty made a diesel Class C, maybe 10-15 years ago.

Hi,
I Ordered a Class C in 1993 Ford E350 with a 7.3 Diesel it took a while to get it but it was worth it. We keep until 2000 then traded there was nothing wrong with it just wanted to change. That probley will be the best camper we will ever have. Good power never had any problems with it. It was a Four Winds 30' with a side isle.
Jim
