Several years ago, if you were trying to decide between a class A gas or diesel and you wanted to have Corian and tile and pull 7,000 pounds behind, there was no decision – it had to be a diesel. Gas chassis back then did not have the horsepower, did not have the torque and did not have the transmission that would allow you to take too much with it. In the last 20 to 30 years the competition between Chevy/Workhorse and Ford brought about better chassis, engine and transmission combinations that made the gas units much better. There are still some differences in weight capacities, handling, and maintenance that we will discuss in this session to help you decide what is right for you.
