Default Eskimo Quickfish 3I vs. Frabill Bunker 210 or 250

Ok, I'm looking to pick up an ice hut for this next ice season. I have narrowed it down between an Eskimo Quickfish 3I and either a Frabill Bunker 210 or 250. I've heard a lot of good things about Eskimo, and the fact that i could pickup an insulated shelter for $220 is great. However, I saw that the Frabill huts have 44.5 sq.ft. of fishable space compared to the Eskimo's 34 sq.ft. The Frabill does cost more ($250 for only the top insulation, and $300 for full insulation), but 10 more sqare feet of fishable space sounds great to me. I just haven't heard anything about these Frabill huts. Are they any good? Does anyone have any experience with these shelters?

Also, are insulated shelters any more durable than uninsulated?

I have the QF 3 and its a castle for 2 people. Have fished 3 in it a few times but really you are looking at 1 hole per person at that point, if you have a heater going. Whichever one you get, make sure to upgrade the tie downs to the quick slide straps, or you will be chasing it after that first gust.
