buying 4 year old DV gas FP display unit?

We are planning to install a direct-vent gas fireplace in our house: Bed & Breakfast 21 from Travis. The dealer is offering 2 choices:
- new
- 4 year old display unit, operated on LP (we have natural gas in our house) - at a discount.

Have these appliances been become more reliable and safer in the last 3 years? Should we avoid buying the discounted four year old used unit? I am aware that Travis has had some recalls in the past.
Thank you for any advice,
