Seasons Greetings Steve,
We have a 2012 Roadtrek 190/Ranger purchased in 2012. It sits over a 6.0 litre gas / 6 speed transmission / 3500 Chevy Express. We love it. Prior to buying, we asked my brother-in-law, a heavy truck repair and towing business owner, if we should buy diesel or gas. He asked where we would be going with the RV; part of the answer included remote boon docking in northern Canada and Alaska. He recommended we buy a gasoline powered unit, since getting a broken down European diesel motor serviced/repaired on site in remote areas could be difficult or not possible. And as MKGUITAR told you, almost everyone can repair a GM motor ... lol.
More food for thought ...one real risk with the camper portion of my rig is the non-availability of certain replacement parts; e.g. fibreglass side panels, which by the way the original company replaced after our encounter with an unavoidable road reconstruction obstacle during my 2015 Alaska trip.
