Both are good coaches. Find the floor plan that you like & can live with & then go from there. Make sure that the hitch rating is high enough for your trailer set up. Depending on which model you choose a higher horsepower engine may or may not be an option.

Yup CC has it nailed.

Floor plan is the big item. You have to be prepared to live in it for days when you encounter inclement weather. We went to a dealers, ditched the salesman, sat in a number of coaches and pretended we had been there for days. We discussed what we would like to do when we were unable to get outside.

Were we each able to watch TV, read, do hobbies without getting in the other persons way? Was the food preparation area to our liking as well as the lounging comfort?

There are lots of good coaches out there. We have the ISL 450. While it would be nice to have more power it is not necessary for us. I would think the same thing if I had 600 or 800 hp. There will always be a situation where more power would be nice. We can handily exceed the speed limit if we want. I find it very easy to maintain 60 - 62 with the unit weighing 48,000. There are a few hills we slow down on but nothing that I find frustrating.

I actually enjoy driving the rig so an extra half hour is nothing.

Good luck in determining and finding the rig you will enjoy.
