If you drive the MBS diesel side by side with a comparable size gas unit, the comparison will be pretty clear. A short write-up wouldn't do justice to it. You should do the side by side comparison yourself. It is well worth your time.
We almost bought the 2401W - it's a marvelous layout with very large open area once the wall slider is extended, and the bathroom is very large. However, it is very short on storage space both inside and out. Also one small point that could be a long-term irritant - one of the sides of the bed doesn't have a window to look out at the stars at night and to see the sunrise in the morning. "Someone" may not like that. We decided on the 2401R over the 2401W because of the generally good layout, good bed set-up, bathroom sink outside the bathroom so two can use parts of the facilities at once, better storage space inside, and very large storage outside. Again, look at them in person side by side and the comparison will be clear - but you may still choose the 2401W as many happy people have done.
