For a walk around camera using the 10-18, 18-135, and 55-250 IS stm lens which body has better IQ, high ISO, faster AF? etc....I have access to both and wasn't sure which was the superior body

I don't think you will see discernable difference in those aspects. The SL1 will have an advantage using the STM lenses for video.

I find the touchscreen on the SL1 a big advantage for going through menu items or making changes to the settings.

The touchscreen makes the SL1 a little more user friendly now-a-days. IQ wise the SL1 shows improvement in JPEGs (ISO 6400 is surprisingly usable) and it is ridiculously lightweight. The T3i will be more comfortable hand holding for longer periods and the battery life will be better. With the bigger lenses you won't see much difference in the overall size of the setup.

Sounds great. My son has the T3i and I had picked up the SL1 for a lightweight travel camera. I just would have swiped his if it was better!
