There is a great article on the new Coachmen Leprechaun 260 DS in current Motorhome magazine. We purchased a Coachman 21RS that is 25 long and has similar layout and have been extremely happy with it. Ours is the Chevy Chassis and it has great basement storage under the slide out. Coachmen has a great website that allows you to check out their offerings. Fit and finish is OK, you get what you pay for.

Two of my friends both purchased a Leprechaun and Both were very happy with it. One had the Chevy tranny and the other had the E-450 chassis. I personally have owned a Coach House 23' Platinum many years now. It also has the E-450 chassis. The tow-haul mode on the Ford is highly praised by their owners! Chevy owners claim that the front end rides smoother and has better driving controllability than the Ford but I noticed the Chevy is heavier overall (and with the same Leprechaun model). I personally liked them both and would recommend either of them simply based on what my friends said about it (and they don't know each other!)

Gas powered motorhomes have too much loss of power to make the trips comfortable, the turbo diesel does not.

So, if you live in the lowlands, gas powered is fine but you will pay for in low MPGs. If you live out West where high elevations and mountain passes are the way of life, opt for the diesel.
Now that you mention mountain performance, Our MB Sprinter charged up the Rocky Mountains. I was very impressed.
