that chassis, length, and engine powertrain is a great combination, just like my '14 Palazzo...and very similar to Forest River Legacy, Fleetwood PaceArrow, Winny Forza, Tiffin Allegro Red, and others...

the great aspect of these 'compact' diesels is the ease of maneuvering, with mostly a 17-18' wheelbase for turning-made-easy, backing is easier, the isb6.7L Cummins has PLENTY of power/torque, and most of all, GREAT fuel mileage - up to 12, or maybe even more, if you drive softly.

With most newer diesels, probably 2012 and up, you'll also probably see more robust INVERTER systems for 120v power when you are off-grid, providing power to all your outlets, Residential fridge, microwave, etc. Most have 4 - 6v House batteries for lengthy off-grid stays, and integrated battery chargers(so no 'Converter' as most RVs have).
Air bags also give you a smoother ride, and the comfort of dropping the coach chassis down for easier entry, and leveling.


Go for it...
