Whether you are looking for a motorhome or a tow vehicle, this is a question that you need to answer. 

This is a hot debate among many RVers.  I am not going to get involved in that debate here. 

What I am going to do is to provide you the Pros and Cons on Diesel powered RVs and tow vehicles and Gas powered RVs and tow vehicles.

Once you get this information, you will be better able to decide which type of engine will fit your needs.

Decisions, decisions, decisions, by now your head is probably spinning from all the decisions you have to make just to get an RV and go camping. 

Believe me when I tell you that once all these decisions have been made and you finally get your RV, the sheer joy of the RVing experience will make up for all the pain that you are experiencing now (really it will).

So, lets continue our answer seeking journey by answering the question of the day:

Hopefully, this information will be helpful in steering you in the right direction.  One thing is for sure you will never regret becoming an RVer regardless of the engine type you choose.
