Flagstaff HW27KS

Just sold my less than a year old Rockwood Mini-lite 2504s and looking at the Flagstaff pop up as a replacement.

Any Flagstaff pop up owners have any insight or concerns I should look for or know about? I'm looking at a very slightly used 2014 Flagstaff HW27KS Thanks for the help in advance!

We have the Rockwood HW277, twin to the one you are looking at. Ours is a 2010 and we have had it 5 years. We have really enjoyed ours very much. We have not had any real trouble with it, though the low point drains are now leaking. They can not really be reached from the outside as they are back behind the slide out kitchen. We are replacing them this weekend. The awning is just about impossible to roll up with the camper opened up, just too tall - but that is true for all the high walls. We don't use the bathroom, so could not tell you if there are any issues with it or with dumping the black tank. One thing I don't like is the condensate from the air conditioner runs over the back tent all the time, am frequently putting that away wet when running the ac, but again I don't think that is a model issue, that would happen with any of them. I do like being able to access the fridge with the camper closed. We really love the outside kitchen, use it all the time.
I feel very comfortable towing it with our dodge Durango (7000 lbs towing capacity) and have not had any towing issues with it. We do not use a sway bar or wdh.

Thank you! I was also wondering about sway bars and wdh hitch since I gave mine with the sale of my tt. I will be pulling with a newer Ram and didn't think I would have an issues.

Gals of escape. I've seen on pinterest that some people use pool noodles or cut pvc pipe to channel the AC run off. We are thinking about trying it next trip. Ours I'd a hw276 and have the same problem. I do use the bathroom but not shower. We just try to get full hook up but if not we don't empty unless it's 3/4 full. The key trick is water water water but it fills up quick. I use a product called unique natural product. So far it works great. I use a swivel stick through the toilet.
