Key phrase is "live in it for a year" people! If you have the cash, absolutely go all electric. Propane heat sucks to deal with for extended periods, and you will quickly tire of the small absorption fridge. They do not take much power at all and I can run my entire coach off a 15-20a circuit (minus and dryer of course) indefinitely. In the OPs case I would assume there will be power.

For extended boondocking missions living with 1 light on at night, minimizing all power usage, and never wanting to use your generator (cause they are only good for 50,000 hours), an all electric coach is not the best. Considering most all electric coaches are 40ft+, have washers and dryers, and are more $$; the entire rig is not really setup for extended boondocking anyway...

It all depends on how you are going to use it and for "living in it for a year" I think you are on the right track.

First of all, I do not believe I could ever go more than a day without running the genny. I have a residential fridge and need the power. I can boondock, but do not prefer it as we have to go without bathing completely for too long because of limited grey and black tank space.

The induction cooktops are almost instant on, so the instant on gas burner advantage is a fallacy IMO. My wife MUCH prefers electric cooking and if given the choice would jump at all electric with an induction cook top. She cooks almost every meal (2 per day, 7 days per week) so she has a lot of experience. She complains all the time because our present coach is NOT all electric.

IMO go with the all electric.
