Shower Hose Replacement?

So my shower hose has a crack in the fitting on the head end. Most likely this is from over-torquing the fitting when I upgraded the shower head. Anyway, I need to replace it and I'm finding that for not a whole lot more money, I can install a stainless hose.

Any thoughts? Should I bother with the upgrade to SS or just replace with factory vinyl hose with plastic fittings? How flexible are the stainless hoses really? Are they just like the ones in my kitchen at home? Trailer is in storage, so I'm just starting to shop to see if I can get a replacement before we bring it home next week for our next outing...

Personally, I would go for the less expensive one. I like one as long as possible.

I have a stainless hose and found it is not as flexible as the plastic ones.. it will often stand out from the wall so that you hit it when moving in the shower..

Thanks guys! Looks like I'm just going with a vinyl replacement. I'll try to be a little more gentle with it this time!
