I've compared the specs; what I'm looking for is RVers familiar with these models who can tell me the pros and cons. Thanks!
We almost pulled the trigger on the Mirada - Now I don't remember the 351 but I know we looked at it. We sort backed off the Mirada for 2 reasons; one of which was originally a plus on our list. The second bathroom/shower. But that also took away the rear window for which ultimately swayed us. I personally saw the 2 dump stations as a minus too - wasn't aware when we first looked at. The other thing that made us look elsewhere was the lack of pantry space and TV. The TV was mid-ship pointing forward - more of an awkward head position to watch.
Otherwise the Mirada had the sleeping space we needed for GKs. Outside storage was good too.
We ended up with the Georgetown XL 350 was is similar to the 351. TV is above the sink and opens up to the cabinets with rear window.
Hope this calls out a few things we about the Mirada to consider or at least know about.
