Gas Pusher

Was going thru some RVs at Parker, AZ the other day and saw my first gas pusher. It was a Georgetown 391 2008. It looked just like a diesel pusher from the outside. I was in awwwwwww!!

Roger......

I don't get it. According to the 2008 brochure, there wasn't a Georgetown model number 391. Look at past brochures posted by cfsoistman (Charlie) back on Feb. 17, 2011.

Gas Pusher

Since the pusher chassis, Workhorse UFO, is no longer in production, the one you saw must have been one of the last down the line. I think Workhorse discovered it was too expensive to make versus what they could sell a gasser for.

We own the 2007 391 and love it. Its nice to be heading up a big hill with the transmission down shifted and engine revs up and still have a quiet conversation in the front.

I would like a Gas Pusher, that sounds cool. The cost of maintaining a Diesel is what scares me. I have seen the repair bills for motorhomes from the repair shop i used to work at...OUCH! just an oil change and new oil/air filters alone will drain your account. I admire you guys with the Diesels and your deep pockets. looks like fun to me, maybe someday...

These days Diesel isnt so much better than a gas engine anymore. there used to be a massive difference and you could the 3 times the miles out of a diesel engine and on average was cheaper on fuel (despite diesel prices)

But now days a Diesel engine only lasts about 75% longer than a gas engine thats maintained and the costs of maintaining a diesel overshoots any little difference in fuel anymore. plus the new urea standards suck and are yet another cost and inconvenience to a diesel engine anymore.

There's another outfit making gas pushers called "Special Interest Vehicles". Really neat-looking, but expensive. It's on their own design tubular space-frame structure that combines chassis and body frame into a single unit. The engine, transmission and suspensions are made by regular motor industry companes. Most seem to have the Ford V-10.
