I am looking at an older class a diesel pusher with a Cummins engine, freightliner chassis and a Onan 6500 LP generator. I like everything I see except the propane generator. Everyone I know uses the diesel generator and most, but not all, say to stay away from the propane. This unit is not set in stone for me, but the price is right and I would like to know the pro's and con's of a LP unit. The generator itself has only 63 hours on it, but I did not start and run it. Should I keep looking or is the LP something that could work. Thanks in advance for any advice.
WD dealer for just about all your performance needs.
The single biggest factor is propane supply.
Usually about 48 hours, the a re-fill or hook up to a spare tank.
These MH's were done this way to keep the price in line.
Nothing wrong with the generator, just keeping it supplied with propane.
I had the same combo for over 10 years. My biggest gripe was the generator. I ended up putting a bigger gas generator in my trailer and ran the coach off of it. I got the keyless remote start generator and was the best investment I made at that time. Good luck with what ever choice you make.
My 1st MH had a LP generator on it.
The only thing it takes to change to gas is a pump, carb, and fuel line as well as a fuel supply tank. I used a 30 gallon boat tank... Which i actually have a new one at home..

I have a class c now that I tow with. I use a trailer toad and run the mh off of a Honda generator that is mounted on the trailer when I'm towing down the road. The gas generator on the mh works fine, but uses a lot of fuel.
Looks like I'm going to pass on the coach with the LP gen set. It was listed as a Cummins with a 330, just found out it is the 275 hp Cummins. That's two strikes, so guess I'll keep looking. Thanks everybody for the help.
Being you live in Texas, I would keep an eye on PPLmotorhomes.com. They have some good deals I think. Good luck!
That's where I found the last one Joey, at PPL motorhomes over in Cleburne Texas
Funny, I'm in NJ and when I was looking it seemed like all of the ones I was interested in were in Texas! I used RVT.com & rvtrader.com but ultimately found mine on Craigslist. There is a website called searchtempest.com that lets you search a specified mile radius on Craigslist instead of just searching the local areas that Craiglist offers - I found a nice clean, low mileage, one-owner 2004 DP just 80 miles from my house using that site.
