IMHO, The higher priced rigs, Teton, Carraige, HithHiker, Excel, Alfa etc, are built with better hardware, more insulation, better quality appointments, ie window coverings, upholstery etc. than some of the mid priced units. One example I can use is on our 96 HH Premier the cabinet face frames while being solid hard wood, were paper decal wrapped. This over time did not wear well, tended to tear, or come off with contact such as removing dishes from the cabinets. Our Teton has solid wood without any paper wrap. Hidden euro style hinges, another thing that holds up better than surface mount hinges. I do not claim to un-fairly criticize thses other rigs, just an example. I like the new Artic Fox 5er's. Very nice rigs, can be s/u for severe weather, priced well. Upper end 5er's are typically prone to the same new coach issues and tweaking as any other, but not usually ones that are catastrophic, as they are typically built to withstand their heavy weight. Do lots of research, and pay attention to the small stuff.
