    If you had a choice. . Torsion or spring axle?
    Ducted or non ducted air conditioning?
    Ducted or non ducted heat?
    Metal or fiberglass exterior?

    Here's my take ..... Torsion axles give you a smoother ride
    Spring axles give you more height and are repairable
    Ducted AC should be quieter but maybe less flow
    Ducted heat should distribute the heat better
    Fiberglass easier to keep clean, harder to fix and the walls are
    solid foam
    Metal walls have insulation in them and maybe able to run wires
    in them

    As you can see it is a slow day and grandma threw me out of the kitchen. LOL

    I would say it depends on whats out there , price point and such. I dont have the camper models listed or a hybrid. But i do like the ducted ac. I was surpised how well it worked, but that also may be do to the better insulation. I hope not to run wires but there is room under stuff if needed. ( im not opening up the walls! I think i have a twin torsion axel, not sure but it has rubber straps supporting the tires. Its a smother ride, or it could be just the newer TT and the extra weight. Take a look around. See what you like, and what you want to pay!

    Fiberglass walls laminated to foam will delaminate with any moisture intrusion. Metal is easily replaceable
