New Camper!

Hello everyone! I just bought a 2015 Rockwood HW296. First camper of this size and all the amazing options. Went from a '94 Fleetwood/Coleman Popup so you know the change! I'm pretty excited about getting it out there. Most of my excursions will be "dry" camping but I did also buy a generator. Where my concerns come in really is just taking care of the water tanks...(going in and out) so I don't break anything. Any tips on set up, using, and emptying?

Welcome and congrats on your 2015 Rockwood HW296. We loved our hi-wall pup when we had it.

Welcome to the forum. Here's hoping your new high-wall PUP serves you well for many years. We love our TT, but miss the old PUP, which provided us with wonderful camping experiences for many happy years. I see your post also appears over in the tent campers and pop-ups forum, where I'm sure you will find plenty of advice from those who know the ins and outs of your unit. Enjoy!

Welcome aboard. We really liked the 296. We had a Rockwood pup for a few years and loved it. When we bought the Mini Lite last year, your 296 was a real close second choice. Both had pros / cons and it was nearly a toss up for our uses. That unit is going to be night and day from the Coleman, enjoy!

Congrats, I'm close to purchasing the same pup, HW296. Let me know your thoughts after taking it camping.

Thanks everyone!

Will do Tactical. So far just tinkering with it, I'm so excited. It's the size of a travel trailer set up but collapses for towing and storage. Love it!

Gforce24,

Cool, we've researched a lot about that model, I agree it is a very nice trailer with the ease of garage storage and somewhat easy towing. Look forward to seeing our 296's at the campground.
