There’s been a longstanding disagreement between those who believe gas-powered RVs are superior and those who favor diesel. A couple decades ago, it wasn’t really worth it to invest in diesel unless you were partaking in a very specific type of travel. Nowadays, the gap has narrowed, and the debate has intensified. Whichever side of the gas vs diesel RV debate you represent likely depends on a few factors. In this lesson, we teach you about those factors, and discuss some of the distinguishing characteristics of gas- and diesel-powered units.
Making the choice: gas vs diesel RV
To help you pick a side in this great debate, Dave Solberg contrasts the capabilities and limits of each type of RV. He explains why certain types of towing and travel are best suited for diesel RVs, what makes them much more expensive and less affected by wind, and how you should decide whether the upgrade is worth the cost. Per Dave’s advice, always be sure to factor in your specific needs when opting for one option or the other. Know what you’ll be doing when you hit the road, then choose your side!
