Difference between Prevost XLII and H3-45

I have a friend asked me about this so i thought i seek some help....

What are the differences between XLII and H345 shells?
Is there a website (link please) that summarizes this comparison?

One is available with two slides and the H3 45 is available with three slides, I think.

Prevost's are available with up to 4 slides but that had nothing at all to do with the different models. The 2 models are quite different and come in several configuration each. The H model is the very tall unit with the huge storage bays and fix front seats (mostly wasted space) and a circular staircase up to the living area.
The XL series has a couple of steps up to the driver and passenger seats (the passenger seat can usually be swiveled for use in the living space) which are at the same level as the living area.
The H series is all fiberglass (and Kevlar?) and full paint while the XL series has quite a bit of stainless as the outside skin. The H series is the most expensive with the base model costing about $100,000 more than the XL series.
There are many more differences but once you see both you will understand right away.

XL vs. H3

We are in a 2006 Marathon XLII, and love it. There are enthusiasts for both models, though, and in order to truly understand the difference, you need to look inside both yourself. Picture yourself living in it, and consider what is most important to you. The XL's have more inside storage, and rumor has it that the H's have more outside storage. The one thing I'm sure of, and not just because I'm an XL owner, is that there is a bit more living space in the XL because the passenger seat turns around and joins the living room. In the H, because the passenger seat is on a lower level with the driver, the living space is a bit shorter.

Having said that, consider your co-pilot as well. I know I can put up my footrest, but I swear that at least in a Marathon, the co-pilot's comfort was considered as much as the pilot! I'm 5'4", and my feet dangle unless I put up my footrest.
