Well, I agree that the staples cost less. However, I doubt they save much time with the staples. They drive in the screws without pilot holes and it's probably an automatic feed driver. Three or four screws will hold as well as 6 staples. I just tore out the one under sink panel. Pulled out the 6 staples and used 4 screws to put it back in. Now to get up the courage to pop off the shower connection cover on the bedroom wall.
I can see the cost savings issue if no maintenance is expected, but to do it to cover the water pump is nuts.
When we were looking at White Hawks, we looked at the 24RBS, although we already knew that we wanted the 24RKS. To get access to the water pump and winterizing hose requires removing 4 kitchen drawers and even then it would not be easy. The 24RKS is much better with the pump under the dinette seat. It even has a hinged lift up latching cover. Very nice, even though a removable piece of plywood would do. They spent way more money on that fancy cover than they could ever save with staples. I like the cover though.
