Manufacturer - Tern vs Dahon and alternatives

So I am looking for my first folding bike. Mainly for use on weekend trips and domestic vacations - so taking a train somewhere and then cycling (I have a Cross / Hybrid bike for day to day in the city. I'm living in Tokyo - so for 20 inch bikes (discounting Brompton) I was looking at Tern or Dahon (because of good availability to try in local shops, reasonable prices and good model range - Birdy or BikeFriday are a bit too expensive).

I'm looking to spend around $1000 local equivalent, but could go bit more - main question is which is the better manufacturer, I have read the reports on these forums about racking on Tern frames - it seems rare now, but Dahon seems less affected by this issue.

So I wonder advice on choosing between Tern and Dahon?
