So, I'm gonna get one or the other and would just like to hear some opinions on which people prefer. I know Dragonborn isn't out yet on the PC, but since it is for xbox I figure some of you might have an opinion.
I'm also assuming given the $20 price tag these aren't your run of the mill DLC pack. They have a lot of added content I'm assuming? More along the lines of an expansion?
I think Dawnguard for $20 is a ripoff. It is pretty much just 2 new quest lines that aren't even that long at all. Dragonborn looks to be more of a proper expansion being worth $20. I havent played it yet, but I do know it adds a new quest line and a new landmass to explore. Like I said though I haven't played Dragonborn and that too might not be worth $20. I love Bethesda and I love the games they make, but them as a developer they are lazy as fuuuuuuuu.
Besides I haven't tested this since I bought Dawnguard like the sucker I am, but the DLC seems to be structured just like a mod so my theory is that you could just pira- wait I'll just stop right there ;)

While I've only played Dawnguard, I get the impression that Dragonborn is better, despite being quite disappointing in many ways (spears, were-bears, dragon riding). It also seems to have much better modding potential.
I have Skyrim on both 360 and PC, and have all DLC's on 360, Dragonborn is better then Dawnguard! Some people say Dragonborn is the best DLC that Bethesda has ever put out, I say no, Shivering Isles was far better! My friend said to Me Dawnguard is only worth $10, I say $15!
I'd say you should sell your body or something like that and manage to get both, dawnguard is a very good dlc and dragonborn too, but the most important thing is that many many mods use dawnguard and they will also use dragonborn, soon you will need to have skyrim 1.9+dawnguard+dragonborn to play the newest big mods
