I am beginning my second year of a 136 HR replacing my 02 VW Camper (230K). I choose the diesel because I like the manual transmission. 30K and no codes or challenges. Overall, I like the height and camping interior I selected, but the rig is just a little less agile on curving ascending roads. In my opinion, there was no better option. I always wonder if I would have liked the acceleration of the V6 over diesel....but my initial time on the forums thus far has proved quite helpful. Aiming for a 136" HR/Gas that will replace an 01 VW Weekender.
