    My $$$ would be on a DP But look for the best YOU want for the $$$. You can find great used coachs just don't be in a big rush. In an older coach inspection is the key and expect to spend some after you have purchased.

    If you go for a diesel, be sure to have an oil analysis done before paying out the cash. Also check the antifreeze. If you find that the engine has gas engine antifreeze make them flush the engine and refill with diesel anti-freeze.

    Let us know what you do. :)

    Can you find a decent diesel pusher for under 30k? Would think maybe a gasser in this price range. JMO

    Hello Bill the choice is not an easy one with a budget under $30,000 if you can do maintance and find a well looked after unit that has newer tires and batteries this will save you about$3500 replace all fluied and fillters {gas or diesel}If you have little or no rv expereance have it checked buy a person with knowledge if buying privite.You will find a newer year in gas may even have a slide or two.Will you be towing more than a small car than i would go diesel.Hope you find a nice rv and enjoy your time on the road and Do Not Go Without Rv Insurance on an older Rv .
