I do miss the levelers most as the trailer is no where near as stable and we notice movement we didnt have before. We are glad we made the change, but i still miss the Newmar...
Something else I really like is the fuel mileage. I just couldnt get out of the 6 - 6.5 mpg with the Ford v10. I get close to double that with the diesel. I get worse that i should because the ride is so steady and comfy that going over 70 mph happens very easily and seems to happen quite a bit taking my mpg down to 10. That is something else. I feel i can cover more ground in less time and more safely towing a trailer.
