Jayco Melbourne 29D only comes with V10. No Jayco Melbourne model has diesel option. In fact very few RV manufacturers, if any, offers diesel on that ford chassis. If you want diesel and you want Jayco, you must go to a Seneca which is also classified as a class C even though they are very large ( and cost twice $$ of a Melbourne). We have a 2012 Melbourne 29D and so far are very pleased with it. Several other class C manufacturers offer V10 and Ford chassis also--it is very popular and from everything I have read, very dependable. Our first trip-Illinois to Colorado and back-we averaged 9mpg.
