first addition

We usually camp in campgrounds and I needed a way to get my grey water to the sewer. Well, here it is. All the parts came from Home Depot except the hose. Total cost $19.00. I already have a grey water drain hose pipe left over from the Aliner, so I should be good. I think it will be easy to remove, clean, and store. I can't wait until the maiden voyage.

Edit: I posted in the welcome thread, but I assume most of you (and me) visit here more often than the whole rest of the forums.

Thanks. At first I thought I had sacrificed some quality, but the more I compare them side by side, the better I feel about my purchase. I would say my only complaint (complaint is too strong a word) is the caulking. A liner seemed to do a much neater job. Neater, but the Rockwood seems to be well sealed. Hopefully we'll get it on the road next weekend.

Welcome to the forum, Chris. Glad to get your feedback on the comparison between Aliners and the Rockwoods. Many of us considered Aliner and/or Chalet but found ourselves drawn to Rockwood A frames because of the price and stock features. As for us, after a year we're delighted with our A128.

yea .. your really kinda looking at apples and oranges with these units .. even tho they are so similar. Aliner is a build by unit, where as our units are done assembly line .. using an existing box .. ect. For me ... i really couldnt justify spending an extrea 6 thousand dollars on a model that has less options. Warrenty and local servicing backed up my decision. Quality of build is good .. but my big concern would be if i had a problem down the road .. would these issues be fixed under my warrenty. From what i understand CNW does not stand behind their product ...nor would they warrenty a new trailer if i purchased new from them from Dannys campers and brought it to Ontario. The owner of the local Aliner dealership lost a deal simply because of these issues.

enjoy .. you made a great choice ... d-mo

Been their and done that. Could not justify the price of the Aliner against what we got in our A122. We feel that we have a better quality unit with our Rockwood. We really liked our Aliner Sport, but hated to change the dinette into the bed all the time. We found we have more space to move around in our A122. We think we made a good decision.

The water hose portion of this set up stinks. The garden hose that I used is too small to drain with any speed, so the sink/shower backs up. Back to the drawing board.

I have the same problem with using the supplied gray water hose adapter (to the sink only). I'm thinking of buying a "T" similar to the one in your pictures to see if it will "vent" the hose (short piece of hose to adapter with the long hose going to the gray water container). It will probably overflow but...

What's the best solution?

I was going to say that venting could be the solution. When I added an elbow and a hose to my sink drain fitting, suddenly the sink wouldn't drain very fast. I drilled a small hole on the top side of the elbow to vent it. Problem solved. Let's hope it's something simple in your case too.
