Which is better Sanibel or Montana??

I am looking at a 2015 Sanibel 3901FL with 5 slides and a 2015 Montana 3711FL with 6 slides. I like the living room up front and bedroom in the rear
My question is which is better and why
Thanks
Brian

With both being brand new I doubt you will get a lot of feedback. You might find more info on a search engine like Google. I would type "Problems with ........." In the end we all follow our hearts. My wife always agrees with letting me agree with her.

We went to the RV show in Tampa. Sanibel was one of the first front livingroom's we saw and fell in love with it. But then we wanted to compare it to other FL. Including the Montana. The Montana turned us off with the washer and dryer in the closet on either side and clothes hanging in your face. We found the Sanibel wasn't as well built as others. But after a week of comparing all the models with FL. We ended up with the Cardinal by Forest River. Waiting for it to be delivered and cleaning out the house and getting ready to go full time. That's why we spent so much time and effort in comparing. Our last home.

Don't know if this is important but the front room units we looked at had more slides and couldn't access bathroom with slides in. This turned us against them. jfyi

In the Cardinal there is the back door we can get to the bathroom. Plus front door to the kitchen area. We thought about when we needed those places during travel.

We have the 3800FL Cardinal and you can reach the bathroom and most of the kitchen. We have had it since September and are going full time at the end of this year. We really enjoy the room in the front living area.

Which one has the better axles, tires and frame. Sanibel is the top model of Primetime. Not sure what the top line Forest River is. Cedar Creek, or Cardinal?

The Cardinal is the top of the line for Forest River. Check it out. You'll fall in love
