Does anyone really put miles on their Newell diesel pusher?
I hope in the next few months I will be able to buy a used newell that will fit my budget. I want to use it for business and we will be traveling about 20,000 miles a year.
I've talked to quit a few people who only use their diesels a few thousand miles a year(2-4K). Does anyone really pile on the miles or is this average and if so then why would any one own a diesel?
As the weight of an RV goes up, the suitability of a gasoline engine declines rapidly. I would not think of purchasing a gasoline powered RV that weighed over 25,000 pounds. Diesel is the ONLY reasonable choice for heavy coaches. Newell introduced his first rear engine diesel powered motorhome in 1972. A few front engine units were produced until 1976.
The high torque of a diesel engine allows it to move heavy loads that would stress a gasoline engine beyond any reasonable expectations.
Diesel may be the best reason if you will be putting on 20K Miles a year. Gasoline Engines just do not last as long.
