Depends on what you mean by "sturdier". If you mean better UV and heat resistance, then I would agree. However PVC is a bit stronger, holds air better, and is lighter. Not to mention a lot less expansive. So for those in sunny climes, I think the CSM fabric is a better option. For others that are more solar challenged, then PVC is a strong contender.

I have a WM 310 RIB with a 15hp souped up to a 20hp and a steeper SS prop. It's a little exciting wide open in the chop with one person, and will plane out with 4-5 people.
Its at my boat in South shore across the lake from you if you wanna try it out for fun.
