I would like to know if anyone has a opinion on if the difference between the 2797LMT and the RV760LMT is worth the $150 price difference

I have the 760 (I have a written review in that section on here) but I cannot compare to the 2797. I'm assuming the big difference being all the RV specific functionality in the RV760 versus the auto one.

760lmt
Specialized RV routing supports RV-related restrictions in the U.S. and Canada (customizable by height, weight, length, width)
Includes a directory of America’s RV Parks & Service locations
Displays elevation grade of current roads while driving
RV-specific features include state border notices, speed limit changes, sunrises/sunsets and mile marker info
External video input for backup cameras
The 2797 doesnt but has other bells and whistles.
The 2798 has a back up camera option.
Did you check out the garmin website?

No experience with the 2797LMT. I did originally use a 1450LMT, then "upgraded" to a 760LMT. posted comments in the 760 thread - post #22, Garmin RV 760 LMT
Not sure the 760 benefits justified the cost.

Thanks for the info. I guess I was just wondering if the 760 worked as well as they claim.

George,
The review thread up above was started by me. I was the first one to get it in the nation and I DO NOT work for Garmin. I really like mine. If you have any questions, feel free to hit me up directly or maybe even set up a Skype call or something so you can see it in action.

Looked on the Garmin website, but could not find out if the RV model can be used in a non-RV mode?

I think the 760 works extremely well. But if you've used Garmin devices in the past, you'll find the user interface on the 760 is quite different. There is no owner manual accompanying this unit, but there is a help screen routine for most functions which, of course, no self-respecting male would ever use! For instance it took me a half-hour of fiddling around to figure out how to put in a route when starting point is different from "where you are!" But the screen responds almost instantly to touch input, the voice commands are quite effective and really handy while driving; map calculations seem a little quicker, particularly when planning LONG trips. I've been very pleased, but must admit there was a learning curve for me - cause the interface is so different from the built-in GPS in our toad!

Yes, it can. There is an icon at top of screen that shows which mode you are in... you can tap that icon, and a screen pops up allowing you to change from RV to auto mode. Handy if you'll be moving it back and forth from RV to toad.
