Which One .. Crescendo or Journey

Iím a first time diesel buyer and I've narrowed down my choices between a 2008 Gulf Stream Crescendo 324 and a 2005 Winnebago Journey 34H. I would prefer the Crescendo with the 300 HP Cummings and 5000 pound hitch since I can get this one local but the Journey has a 350 HP Cat and a 10,000 hitch. The price of each is nearly identical. I would be pulling a 4500 pound vehical and am concerned the Crescendo would have trouble pulling such a load traveling over the Rocky Mountains.

Any thoughts about if I would have a problem if I were to purchase the Crescendo?

Crescendo will do the job, you will just go a little slower up the hills. just find a gear you are comfortable with and get in the slow lane. Neither coach is going to fly over the Rockies.

I can't believe how fast these small diesels sell! In the few days I spent doing some research on the coaches they both sold.
