Chevy chassis will have a lower gross vehicle weight than a Ford, and the cab has more foot room than a Ford, although the new 2020 Ford supposedly has improved foot room over the old ones. I also recall reading that Chevy reintroduced the 4500 chassis, which was discontinued some time back, not absolutely sure on this, I think I read it somewhere. If this is true, the weight issue may be a moot point.

There is no 2020 E-series chassis. They just ran production of the 2019 long, then start 2021 early with a 2 month changeover shut down. The 2021 E-series has the new 7.3L, but carries over the previous doghouse. The 2022 E-series, which starts production early, will have the new doghouse which will take advantage of the smaller motor. I haven’t seen pics yet however.

Reviews from QuadVan indicate the steering feel is vastly improved. I haven’t driven a new one myself yet.

Our Coachmen 28QB is on the GM 4500 chassis. It handles, rides and drives very well. We tow a 4700# Jeep so a little more power would be nice.
All in all, either brand will serve you well and most likely outlive the "house".
