Frozen water will ultimately win. Maybe not immediately, but eventually.
Braided SS hoses will certainly look really cool, but is the additional cost really worth it? With the exception on an 18-inch hookup line to the toilet, my Airstream's fresh water supply system is all copper, and the looks of it makes me smile every time an access door is open.
In seven years, no one has ever asked to see the plumbing, and I have never made anyone look at it.
If you want SS hoses then go for it. Be forewarned that, other than you, there may not be an appreciative audience.
