Narrowed down to two Bunkhouses

We are down to the final two manufacturers in our search for a diesel bunkhouse. The contenders are Tiffin Allegro Red 38 QBA and the Forest River Berkshire 390 BH. Both appear to have the same cummins 340HP engine and 2500 transmission. The chassis' are freightliners but the Allegro's front axle has a higher weight rating (roughly 1000 lbs) than the Berkshire. The Berkshire has more standard features as well as a well organized water manifold system.
Can someone give me some insight as to why the Tiffin is so much more expensive?

The Newmar Ventana 3942 with bunks has the 350 hp ISB and a 10,000 pound towing capacity. Have you considered it?

Tiffin is a good product. I don't know much about the Berkshire.

Thank you for the lead. I am not familiar with the Newmar Ventana. Looks like it's out of my price range.
