Considering a 2006 Monaco Cayman, 36 PDQ

Folks you help me a bunch with hints to look for on a 2002 HR Imperial that we are considering. We are ready to pull the trigger but I stumbled across a 36' 2006 Cayman PDQ. It has a 350hp diesel with a 300 generator. It is immaculate with 30000 miles. My questions are, how does it handle? Will it be able to tow my Jeep wrangler (4900#) I know this is a base unit Am I giving up important things with the Imperial with 400 hp engine and 7500 generator? There are tons of bells and whistles on the Imperial But maybe too many? We want to take short trips in the area and then spend a month or two on the road each year. We've had tons of RV (all types) but this is our first diesel pusher, and given my age, will probably be out last I'm looking for some discussion and specific points on these units if you have them. We spend a lot of time Photographing in the National parks and Colorado mountains. All input and suggestions appreciated. I think I've been looking at so many rigs now I'm kind overwhelmed.
Thanks Kat

I would check and see if it has had new trailing arms installed. My daughter has an 05 Monaco Cheetah and had to have a set shipped to Alaska, not knowing of the problem before they got it 8 years ago. Kind of spendy, $6000

and also had the ride enhancement kit installed.

To me it still rides to stiff.
