My costs for running and repairing a diesel were about 40 cents per mile. My costs for my gas RV are about 5 cents per mile. I love to travel so there are a lot of miles rolled on. Fuel costs were a wash as the diesel had to have additives to the fuel to run well. I'm a slow driver and so get about 10 mpg on gas. Diesel was about 14 mpg.

I find it curious, to say the least, that the OP is conspicuous by her absence from this discussion. Questions asked were valid questions, and it may be that it's either information overload, or she doesn't like the answers to the questions she asked. Some acknowledgement of all the info provided doesn't seem to be too much to ask, however. [emoticon]

But there's no getting around it - buying a motorhome is buying a truck with a house attached; it's a big deal. There are lots of moving parts - parts which will enevitably need maintenance, replacement, or both, and it's not something that can be done on the cheap. This isn't something where an owner can simply "set it and forget it", as we owners well understand.

A prospective buyer needs to do their homework and go in eyes wide-open, with help from owners like us here, and hopefully, the end result will be a satisfactory ownership experience.
