Garage
I had a RB for SMB #1 - now with an EB for rig #2 and there is no way I'd go back to the RB, especially if I was going to be transporting kids or additional gear. The extra room absolutely rocks! Solo, I might be swayed for an RB but only if it was outfitted correctly..

More space is definitely better... But I was pleased and surprised to find that my RB fits in the garage. By about an 2 inches.

Good luck.

Having owned both you made the right choice.

Thanks guys. Looks like the sale on this one might fall through, but at least now I know what I'm after.

Can I ask the diesel vs gas question now?

That's what I've read. My only real question is if you take a big mpg hit on the 5.whatever gasser when you get the thing built up, as opposed to the diesel.

You definitely will, and about the only small thing you can do to combat that is a 5-star (or other) tune, which do help considerably with power, but nil with MPG no matter what they try to tell you.
