So how are the Dexters holding up Terry? I read on another thread that an Airstream dealer in Canada was not impressed with their longevity. He had mentioned the ride quality was not the same.

So far, I haven't noticed any more damage to anything in the trailers that have Dexters, though I have noticed a few more main door hinge pins vibrating out. This could be from many things, from the axles to the tires not being balanced, to the current state of our highway system. No complaints of things getting bounced around, no more popped rivets than you would expect from any Airstream. Time will tell for sure, though.
Oh, one thing I did notice: the backing plates and drums are made in that overseas place we generally associate with "cheap"...
