Since we recently traded a cab over bed style for a "mini" cap I'll give you our reasons. We had a Sunseeker MBS 2400W with the cab over bunk area configured as the optional entertainment center. Now we have a GTS 2800 QSF with the "mini" cap. I prefer the "mini" cap because:
1. The forward view without the overhang is outstanding!
2. No roof gutters draining rain runoff right in the center
of the cab doors.
3. Less wind noise. And less wind drag...maybe
a little better gas mileage???
4. We don't need or want the extra bunk.
5. It just looks better IMHO.
The downside: The cab over bunk style, at least when configured as the entertainment center as in our MBS, did offer much more storage space than the "mini" cap does in our GTS. It doesn't help any that FR blocks off a large part of what could have been used for storage in the GTS cap. But we have plenty of other storage spots...
Both options work, we just prefer
the "mini" cap...
