GL diesel "better" than ML diesel?

Hi folks, I'm a lurker from the G wagen forum. I'm about to sell my old 460 (280 GE converted to a 300GD) as well as an 05 E320 cdi and I'm trying to decide between a used GL cdi and a used ML cdi. I don't expect either to have the off road capability of a 460; but I do need to be able to carry several big dogs, drive up to some (small - east coast, southern appalachians) mountains on unimproved gravel or dirt roads. I may want to tow a trailerable sail boat (no more than 3000 lbs) from time to time.

What should I be thinking about or considering as I try to sort through the GL versus ML question? It seems to me that the extra space in the GL is helpful (who can't always use more space?).
Are there any options that you feel are particularly good to have?

Get the GL for size considerations. Other than that, they are very similar.
