I think SS is fine. Usually no one uses it because its cost prohibitive.
Also i think its not very forgiving to virbration and the welds could fail.

Stainless not forgiving to vibration and failing welds?

Whoever told you that is a piss poor welder

Ever seen a milk truck or liquid food products truck goin down the road?

Hint. The tanks are welded stainless
