Default Which Ameristep Blind?

Ok folks, I have been kicking around the idea of getting another Ameristep blind for the upcoming hunting seasons. I already own the Doghouse model and I am very happy with it but would also like to have a larger model for use with more than just two people. I happened over to the Ameristep website and noticed that they have some new blinds out....

The Brickhouse:



60" dia. x 67" high
31" dia. x 2 1/2" thick
Weighs 10.5 lbs.
Durashell with Shadowguard
Seven zippered windows
...and the Roundhouse:



80" dia. x 76" high
30" dia. x 4" thick
Weighs 17 lbs.
Six windows / Six portholes
Wheelchair Accessible
...but before venturing to the website I was primarily considering getting the Penthouse since it is so large...



78" dia. x 90" high
30" dia. x 2 1/2" thick
Weighs 20 lbs.
Durashell w/Shadowguard
12 windows/8 portholes/4 triangular openings Wheelchair Accessible 48" x 60"
Considering the specs I am guessing it would have to either be the Penthouse or the Roundhouse if I want something large enough to really accomodate 3 or 4 hunters though the design of the Brickhouse looks interesting as well.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I' d go with the one that gives you the right good headroom for standing shots with your bow, depending of course on how tall you are. If your above 6' , better go with the penthouse. Guess you can park a atv in either one!

Thanks for the replies folks. As I stated above, the Penthouse was my original choice...and I do believe it is slightly less expensive though I have not verified it yet. I will definitely let you folks know which one I choose when the time comes.

Keep ' em coming.

Thanks for the vote coyote. It looks like it is going to be the Penthouse. Now I just have to go about ordering it.
