You need to take a very long drive in it. Check turning radius. I will not say it is a bad driving experience but very,very,very different from what you have.
I sold a similar unit on the M2 chassis. I went and test drove an exact same 4018 you mentioned. One of our biggest dislikes and decision to not buy the 4018 was do to the total lack of usage while the slides are closed. It is a great floorplan when open but downright dangerous to walk thru with slides closed tripping over the 4" high slides.
I am really still on the fence over Super C or DP. All other things equal I would take the truck over the DP any day.
