5er toy hauler or DP & Trailer?

Wife refuses to sleep in a trailer that also houses a car.  Says she will smell the gasoline and tires regardless of the construction of the barrier wall.

So I bought a diesel pusher.  Good news is that I don't have to re-do the E-track since I keep my present trailer.  Bad news is that the motorhme/trailer combination does not tow nor bend in the middle as well as pickup/5er combination.  And we are short one vehicle to drive separate from the living area also.

The pusher turned out to be a bad investment.  When the engine failed in Indiana, I decided that I was not putting any time or money into it.  Bought a 2006 Gulf Stream Super C on a Chevrolet Kodiak MDT chassis.  It isn't a diesel, though.  8.1 gasoline, like my Suburban.  Tows better, and bends better also due to the hitch configuration.
