Cost of Diesel per gallon plus DEF VS Regular Gas รท MPG difference is pretty much a wash.

Most important:

1) GCWR (Gross Combination Weight Rating) Minus UVW (Unloaded Vehicle Weight) = CCC (Cargo Carrying Capacity) Does your Perspective RV have enough Capacity ?

2) Tow capacity & hitch rating. going to tow anything ?

3) floor plan

4) driving comfort (how much time behind the wheel will you spend ?)

Lot choices out there and everyone of them has good and bad points. Pick the one you will be most happy with.

We get the IVECO Daily chassis that seems to combine the aspects of the E450 and Sprinter, now heavily used as a Class C base
This is 28ft long

It wasn't the fuel mileage that led me to the Navion (Sprinter chassis, made by Itasca/Winnebago) but the driving comfort - much more legroom in the Sprinter based units, no "doghouse" for the engine. The Sprinter units are also a foot narrower than the Ford ones, advantage or disadvantage depending on your preferences. The difference in fuel cost is pretty much negligible as "Jayco-noslide" pointed out.
x2 on the driving comfort.
On narrow roads I'm really glad to have the narrower body. Once parked, I'd of course rather have the extra interior space.
