I didn't even know friction hinges were a thing. Good idea maybe, but bad execution. To make such a thing that worked well would be quite expensive, I'm sure.

My daughter/SIL's new Forest River trailer has the "friction" hinges. They like them so far (although they've only been camping twice), but I hate them. Realistically, they are nothing more than a way for the manufacturer to save 50 cents per trailer by not installing a door catch.
