The Burley is head and shoulders above anything you could buy new for $350. As an owner of both and a mechanic, I can tell you the Dualie was designed with the "79 mile lifetime" of every department store bike in mind, requires rebuilding right out of the box,and just barely rolls down the road even then. Only reason we own one is it was basically given to us and I plan on junking everything but the frame and making a flat bar fixie out of it just for fun. Even for that usage it won't be a "good" one!
The Burley, OTOH, is a bike well worth upgrading if you decide to stick with it.
