    i cant imagine how crappy either of those are. I bought my 7x16 for 4850 and that is a smokin price. I have a carry on, and its crappy. Can tell it wont last to long. it got a coating of snow and salt spray on the tounge and in about a weeks time it started to rust., lots of thin aluminum that dents easily. It did have 3/4in walls though inside. I dont have to much expierience on those, but price seems really low.
