Default Choosing between two used RoadTreks. Help!

Is there someone knowledgeable out there that might be willing to listen to my choices and help put in into knowledgeable perspective?
I have two used RT Agiles, 2007 and a 2009 that I can buy. I don't know enough about what I'm doing to make a choice. Both owners are waiting for a decision.
Any help would be appreciated.
Nancy

Are those for sale and you are wondering which one to purchase?

Or, do you already own them and are trying to determine which one to sell?

More details please.

Off the top of my head:

(1) Mileage
(2) Tire condition
(3) Are rv systems identical or are their differences, specifically battery bank type/size?
(4) price

+1 on the mileage question

Is there a difference on the mileage on the two RV's?

From the ad:
2007 Agile: Engine/drivetrain: Mercedes 5 cyl turbocharged diesel, Mercedes drivetrain. Mileage has never been below 20 MPG and sometimes gets near 28 (highway). Miles as of today: 43,050. All service conducted at a Dodge dealership (which does Mercedes-based Sprinter work).
New macerator pump and hoses. Interior is in great shape; new tires (11,000 miles) and body in great shape. New 12 volt battery. Full maintenance records.
This Agile is located in the south, never driven on salt/sand.
It is located near an airport and there is an inspector close by so we can have the full monty inspection done.

The other is a 2009 Agile with 49,000 miles, 27,000 miles on the tires. New starter and Battery replaced in spring 2015, so this is probably not the coach battery.

Located out in the middle of nowhere, so inspection could be very difficult to get. It was driven from it's home up north to FL in March of each year and driven on dry roads once a month to charge battery, so it's probably seen some salt. Stored outside on a pad in summer inside in winter.

I guess the 2007 has the 5 cyl engine and the 2009 the 6 cyl. We'd be towing two mid sized motorcycles in an enclosed trailer.

Any perspective you can give me?

I like the info about the 2007. Less mileage, better mpg, no salt, newer tires.

But Sprinter owners here report that the newer 6 cyl will run quieter and has more power ....... The newer chassis is reported to handle a bit better/smoother.

Tough decision and I understand the haste after tracking the classifieds recently.

The difference in price is only $2000.

We found an inspector in WI, so we could get a full inspection.

Here's a good link re: the older SS Agile: http://www.classbforum.com/forums/f9...printer-2.html

and

http://www.classbforum.com/forums/f9...agile-576.html

The chassis change occurred in 2007 so it's possible some late year builds were on the newer chassis.
