Welcome to the forums

Glad to have you...

We didn't buy the Gemini (Compass) even though we did look at it closely. We ended up purchasing the VEGAS (Axis). This was for three main reasons:

Even though we don't need a lot of room, we felt a little "constrained" in the Gemini. And even though the VEGAS/AXIS is only 2-3 ft longer, it feels tremendously larger.

We also liked the Class A layout to the front seats instead of the Class C setup for the Gemini. This gives more movement to the drivers seat front and back as well as reclining.

We also really wanted to be able to use the generator for dry camping. And, even though the Gemini has the generator, it is using propane for fuel, since the Gemini is diesel. We would rather be able to use gasoline (more readily available). And the smaller fuel tank on the Gemini (even though it is higher MPG) still has a more limited range of travel.

Just our two cents here
