Diesel vs gas

Thanks for all the quick responses. We actually purchased a 2015 Itasca Suncruiser, gas. We had a diesel for a short amount of time but the floor plan did not work for us so we traded it in. Now hubby is second guessing if we made the right decision. We plan on doing alot of local trips, can't go for long periods of time yet, still working. Again thanks!

Guess that proves the point about layout being more important than drive train. We too chose floor plan over power plant. You live in the coach not the engine.

I do not pull anything, but I would pull my Boat , if I wanted to take it somewhere, and, I do keep a pull bar in the storage bay-just in case I find that 5 Window Chevy Pickup I am looking for.
Actually the Sprinter is rated 4200lbs - unless they just changed it rescently... The trailer hitch is rated at 5000lbs.

Congrats on the best MPG ever noted for a diesel engine pulling weight.

He said he wasn't pulling anything. I don't doubt his claims. We had the same engine in a 7 passenger SUV that got 25/22.

The View is also a C not an A. Fine if you want to be crammed into a short box. That is not what most folks are looking for in an A.
