We looked at both and bought an '08 View 24h. The interior materials are of better quality. We have been very pleased with it. The little slide out makes a big difference for a family of 4 and we get lots of positive compliments about it. We like that it is narrower than a typical Class C which makes a difference for parking and day trips. I wanted to be able to tow our '03 Chevy tracker on occasion which the trend cannot do. We just took it a 2 week trip of the Oregon coast, redwoods, SFO Bay Area and Yosemite. It performed flawlessly. All this said, I still don't think we would have been disappointed with a Trend if we had no desire to tow our tracker once in awhile.
