It depends of course.

If both are in the same basic condition, then the Mountain Aire is the better coach. Two feet longer, more standard amenities, and bigger engine/transmission.

That said, buy the one with the floorplan that you like the best.

Yes, floorplan. They are both good rigs.

In my opinion, for that kind of money, I'd buy an older pre-def unit and spend the dough remodeling it to exactly how you want it. Doesn't sound like you are worried about losing value, so putting $$ into it is not a concern. As far as horse power, the transmission does most of the work so the only time you will notice anything is going up a hill and then you are still limited to 55mph in most states. Remember that max speed, per manufacture, is 70mph.
May your black water hose never break!

All other things being equal, I'd take the Mountainaire. It's a larger, more premium model. But if I liked the floor plan of the other a little better or almost any other reason, I could readily vote the other way.
