Question Backwoods Smoker Durability

BWS owners,

How has your smoker held up? I'm trying to decide between a new Chubby and a used Party. I definitely would like the extra room of the Party, and it will be discounted a little since it's used, but I'm curious how well your smokers have held up? The used Party is probably somewhere in the neighborhood of 2 years old and has been cooked on "about 2 dozen times." I can tell it'll definitely be well broken in, but how have your smokers lastest before you started seeing a need to replace parts like grates, charcoal trays, diverters, and water pans? What about the seals around the cabinet doors? I'd appreciate any insight anyone has. The seller is a brethren, and appears to have a pretty good reputation. I'll get to see the unit in about 2 weeks.
18.5" WSM, Large BGE, Backwoods Party
