The cost for onboard fuel storage and engine conversion is going to be huge but I guess if you planning on tens of thousands of miles of usage, it may balance out.

I am still considering nevertheless the petrol option. My idea is a full RV renovation, including engine and transmission swap or at least the transmission.
Just wonder how to manage a frame off restoration and what is worthwhile to get done in US before shipping the RV to Europe...

Best would be all the technical parts done there (engine, transmission, undercarriage, suspensions, etc,) there and then in Europe, only focusing on teh interior.
I am dreaming about something like this:

Of course not in a 1 year horizon....
