The gasser diesel debate lol, I've had 6 rv's, I currently have a 37ft fiver. I've towed with gas for years. The truth is the diesel reaches its torque at a much lower rpm than gas. I can tow in overdrive at 65, and it has 230,000 miles on it and still runs great. It's a much better towing experience.
