I absolutely agree, for recreational towing you can't justify the cost of a diesel, but you sure do appreciate having it.
To me it's almost laughable anyone with a TT is trying to justify the TV. How could someone justify the TT initially? You can't, it was just something they wanted and bought...the same is true for the added expense of a diesel.
