I get the question a lot: “Why choose diesel?” Although there are many considerations, I’ve highlighted several key features that make a diesel a great choice for your next RV.
As you take a look at any Class A Diesel Pushers made by Winnebago and Itasca, you’re looking at a coach built on the Freightliner Maxum Chassis – a chassis that is superior in its advanced design with a lower center of gravity which improves handling and provides for a smoother and more stable ride.
Speaking of a smoother ride, air ride is one of the key components people talk about after they have taken a ride in a diesel coach such as a Winnebago Journey built on a Freightliner Maxum Chassis. The air ride suspension is incredibly smooth and unlike gas, does not have spring and shock suspensions. Not only is the ride smoother but it’s also quieter due to the fact the engine is located at the rear of the coach. Overall, your travel experience is more enjoyable.
Another feature of the Freightliner Maxum Chassis in a Winnebago or Itasca motorhome is the increased storage and the improved accessibility to storage. Take for example America’s bestselling diesel pusher, the Winnebago Journey or the Itasca Meridian – they allow for easily accessible basement storage with café-style doors and a sliding tray that rolls out.
One other item you may consider when purchasing a diesel: resale value. Diesel engines run a long time and when it’s time to sell, it’s not hard to get rid of!
