We have one of the flat white roll up hoses and really like it. Quit using it for water since it is only 1/2". Great for washing stuff off and flushing black tank. If I find a 5/8" diameter one I may get it to use for water supply. Buy the 50' one it only costs a little more and takes up just a little more space.

The white fabric flat hoses are great. We use it on non potable water use only and while I only have a 10' one, it rolls up to about the size of my fist. Great for flushing out the black tank.

I bought 2-25' white plastic roll up kind from WM. Never again. First one sprung a leak after leaving hooked up to the water spigot overnight. It couldn't handle the pressure at the site. Looked lie a snake that just swallowed an egg.

The other would randomly blow out like the first one. I kept cutting out the bad spots, and now it's15' max.

My personal opinion is that due to the folding action, the plastic is too soft. It cracks at the fold and the web inside thats supposed to prevent the thing from swelling up, is too weak.

Are these the canvas type hoses? If they are the same brand as camping world they have a warranty and will replace them.

Of course now that I have recommended it you do realize if you buy one it will swell and bust and a piece fly off and break a window.

I have one of the 50' rollup hoses that I keep in the camper for "just in case" situations. They are great! Had a couple years ago and used them constantly with no problems ever. On the other hand, my wife bought a pocket hose and it developed pin hole leaks within an hour of using it. She still uses it, you just have to be careful where you stand!

I have been keeping my eyes out for a good deal on the canvas roll up ones. In reality, we rarely have sites with hookups. When we did, I always had an issue at some point with the water hoses. I now carry 2 - 25' garden style potable water hoses. what a pain to store.

By the way, I use a pressure regulator, but a cheapo. I'll place it at the spigot and then the hose to the camper's water fitting.
