Maybe weight, aluminum verses ferrous metal.

Jealous! I'd sure have liked an Atwood. But it's a Surburban (2014).

Main reason was the Atwood electric switch was on the inside panel. Secondary was aluminum tank (versus steel) so lighter. Also door is attached (hinged) instead of "set in". After the fact, Suburban said "well we have one with the inside switch", but at that point the other reasons kept us on.
