Multiple templates generally do give better models, but they are more sensitive to alignment errors - the templates have to be quite well aligned with each other, otherwise they will present conflicting information (e.g. one template says that a given CA-CA distance is 5 angstroms, and another 10 angstroms) which is difficult to satisfy.
