I have one of these and have used it for a couple years - originally as a boil kettle and now as my HLT. "Much thinner" would be an exaggeration. It's a great pot - much thicker than most budget aluminum pot out there.
I've got mine all outfitted with Bobby M gear - sight glass, thermometer, ball valve. A step bit goes through the aluminum like a hot knife through butter, so it's easy to add on components.
