We looked at everything we could see in person over the course of two years and bought the 2017 View 24J. We had a deal worked out on a very similar Navion at a well known dealership a day's drive away but the local Winnebago dealer gave us the better offer.
We didn't like the some of the design choices on the lower priced Jaco and Coachman Sprinters. In many cases this boils down to personal preference but the lower cost options are often missing things like, steering wheel controls, slide toppers, spare tires, awning covers, etc. I appreciate many smart design aspects of the View / Navion such as being able to close and lock the access panel after deploying the shore power cable, same with the city water access panel.
Propane? We just completed a 4500+ mile trip where we were boon docking often and didn't come close to using half of our propane. We were using the cooktop, and running the fridge and furnace on LP often. We also ran the LP generator for about an 1.5 hours to give it its monthly exercise. In addition, propane can be easily found at many fueling stations.
Perhaps this kinda stuff doesn't make up the price difference to you, but perhaps it will. Good luck in knowing and finding what you want.
