it is a good question and many good points spoken about both.As to the mpg, well I normally get around 23mpg from my 3.0 fiat, low profile, which is FWD, no cam belt.very comfitable to sit in and to drive, quiet as well,however the auto box is not a proper autobox as such.
can actually hear the wife speak as well as the sat nav.
the merc is RWD, which I consider gives a better and more stable ride,more suitable for a big or heavy van, not sure of the mpg or the comfort of the seats on the new ones.
Therefore in your position I would go and test drive both on similar sizes of motorhome to be able to make a qualified choice.
