stainless vs white?

Hello Everyone,
We're clear on most of our build sheet but are debating stainless vs white for the sink and stove. Does anyone have regrets about which they chose? If so, why? We've chosen dark blue Formica (and a fabric that is a light base with blue in it - I can post a picture later) so either will look nice (I think). Also, the picture on Escape's webpage is of the three burner white/stainless stove, does anyone have a picture of the two burner one?
Thanks! Jane

At least for the sink "white" versus "stainless" isn't just a matter of colour - white means plastic and stainless means steel. You may have a preference between the two regarding maintenance and durability.

The stove is steel either way, so it's a finish difference... again with maintenance differences.

On a second go 'round, I'd get the stainless sink, which doesn't mean it won't stain, just that it will stain less than the white plastic.

Our stainless stained right away. You can get the stains out. No such problem with the white.

My white plastic is stained. Of course it would help if dirty coffee cups weren't tossed in the sink when leaving a campground and forgotten until the next trip.

Our stainless has stayed stain less. I got the stainless as I was afraid I'd put a too hot pot in the white and melt the plastic.

Stainless is a whole lot harder to scratch when washing metal items.

Eric, I am wondering if they are using something different now for their stainless sink. Others are reporting staining right away.

Cathy - that's a bummer if so, as ours has been very durable. Worth asking.
