Thanks to all who have responded. As Duane suggests there is a quality
difference in the thickness of the product and the fabrication. Some
manufacturers do not carry the outside coloring throughout the
thickness of the product therefore deep scratches can appear as
discolorations. I recently checked the products carried by stores such
as Home Depot and Lowes and found them, in general, to be of lower
quality that those available from fence companies.<br>

Does anyone know if there are different qualities of vinyl or have any
experiences they're willing to share regarding vinyl fences?
Yes, both in material and thicknesses, fabrication, etc.
How well they do depends in large part, imo, on how harsh the climate
is--particularly heat/UV. Here, after a few years, I've yet to see any
that haven't sagged and/or discolored. (Not that other materials don't
have problems, too...)
I'd look around wherever you are and observe existing ones, particularly
ones that have been in place for a while and see if you can find out
which are what manufacturer or ask the reps for installations in your
area--again I'd ask for some that weren't new.
