Think about it this way. All bathrooms have gfci outlets, alot of hair dryers and curling irons have them built into the cable. SWMBO never complains about one tripping the other.
On the other hand, it costs twice as much.
So odds are if i just install a GFCI breaker and a regular outlet, I'm good to go, with maybe an occasional nuisance trip, for a brew system I'll be monitoring, or an RV with a Backup battery? (good point about the hair dryers, i have seen those before, but it never occurred to me that thats what im talking about)
