Default Rec Tec and GMG metal thickness?

I am considering getting a pellet cooker and pretty much have it narrowed down to a GMG or a Rec Tec. Considerations were features, cost, and financing.

I went and looked at the GMG grills today and was surprised on how thick the metal was, or should I say wasn't. They also had Traeger and Louisiana grills and they too were of the same thickness. They had a Memphis there that was definitely thicker, but 2 1/2 times the cost, which I cannot justify.

I cannot see a Rec Tec, so I don't know how they stack up. Does anyone know the gauge of the metal vs GMG?

I am liking the features of the GMG over the Rec Tec, like the remote and the meat probe. But from what I can tell from what I have read here, Rec Tec owners are pretty happy people. But then again, so are the GMG folks.

So I guess if the metal of both are of similar thickness, I will go with the GMG.

Sorry for the long winded post. Just hoping to get some input from those in the know.
