3) power. I took a trip in the hills and hated having to carry such high revs to make it to the top at a snails pace.
I would agree and add:
#4 Added Storage in the large bays. That drive shaft eats up a lot of room.
#5 I can have a conversation with DW with the engine being 40’ behind us. ISM turning 1500 rpm at 70 mph is a lot quieter than the gasser screaming up a hill just under your feet. Granted most of the time you will be cruising and not climbing hills at high RPMs.
Just do what you feel is right for you. There are coaches for sale everyday that wasn’t right for someone and perfect for another. Good luck.....and yes drive a few and find some hills for the test drive.
