Personally I think there is very little in it and both would make excellent family ribs. Both have a good reputation and no vices.
If your after a new one I supose build slots and costs may be the deciding factor. Check the all up weights against your tow vehicle limits so you can comfortably tow long distances for holidays etc. If secondhand then Ribster Raches 7m looks good or this with a couple of extra seats perhaps:
There are no other options btw, so don't listen to those 'orrible Ribcraft lot when they appear shortly
