Milage vs enjoyment

We're looking at trading our 07' Pleasureway Plateau for a Jayco 29MV. Milage difference is 24.6(diesel) vs 9 (Ford) with the 29MV. Should I get hung up on that or just enjoy the new upgrade. Conflicted. How is towing with the Jayco? Thanks

I don't have a MH, but here is how I'd look at it:

I assume the Jayco is bigger than your old one? If so, item #1 that works against mileage - I assume the size it what you want and wor the sacrifice in mileage?

How many miles do you expect each year? I'd figure fuel cost at $4 times the mileage you travel and compare that cost against the convenience of the new rig. Unless you drive crazy miles, the fuel cost may not be all that significant. Don't forget the crazy high oil change costs on a diesel too.
