Finally,,narrowed down

After exhaustive research we have finally decided on either the new "Breeze" or a Newmar Baystar 2901/2902. I know not exactly apples to apples,,diesel /gas. The new Newmar appears to be about 35-40 grand less expensive. Any thoughts form this well informed group.

Yes, a gas engine chassis will be $40k or so less expensive than a diesel pusher. Both decent coaches - it just depends on what you want and your ability to pay for it.

Basically you are asking the old "gas or diesel?" question, which has been argued pro and con here numerous times. May I suggest using SEARCH to read some of the previous discussions?

Hi ernsue,
Floor plan is what you will remember about a coach and how well does the floor plan fit your RVing lifestyle. Spend some time in each coach with the coach in the travel, living and sleeping configurations. See which one works best for you.

Both Tiffin & Newmar are good, solid manufacturers so I don't think you could go wrong with either.

Consider the use. If I'm going to spend up to $40k more, I'd want to be using it....a lot. If it's a few of weeks a year vacation with several long weekends interspersed with sitting a lot in between then the gas coach might be a better fit. If travelling a lot (full or part-timing) I can justify that extra money plus the air ride of a diesel will make driving nice.

After deciding on use, I'd consider floorplan. If I don't like the layout, I won't buy no matter how good of a deal.

There is great need for a sarcasm font.
