Which GPS to buy?

Looking at GPS's for new to me motorhome. Garmin RV 760LMT vs Garmin DEZL 760LMT. Which of these two GPS's would you buy and why. Looked at all rv gps's and narrowed it down to these two but not sure which would be the better of the two. Hope you can help.

In my wholly uneducated point of view, I'd likely go with the RV-specific one solely because you don't need many of the extras of the trucker version (hours of service, etc.). You still plug in your stats (RV height, length and weight) and it supposedly customizes the route for you.

We use the Garmin 760 RV LMT. Customizes to your specs. We didn't go for the extra add on package for gas mileage etc since all of that is already in the Berkshire. We previously used a Magellan RV gps that was awful. The 760 has a quick response touch screen. We've used it for close to 3,000 miles so far without any problem. Kept us on all the right roads. And if you do miss a turn it re routes you without the annoying "recalculating" message. And the traffic alerts were spot on, warning us of where it was and what our expected delay time would be. Also advises you of upcoming speed limit changes or road conditions.
