The Rockwood does have the 16 inch box which makes me overlook its shortcomings. Anyway any feedback from an owner of this model would be greatly appreciated. Also how much does towing it affect gas mileage. 15 years ago I had a 10 foot box camper that only affected my normal gas mileage by 2 MPG. It wasn't a high wall and only weighed 2500lbs.
It would not be too difficult to replumb the two sewer outlets together with a wye fitting, elbow and adapter. They use regular black schedule PVC like you buy at lowes and glue together.
Or you can do with a wye downstream.
We had the 27sc which is the Flagstaff. We looked at the longer twin axle 29, but wanted our weight under 3500 pounds in case we pulled it with something smaller. Ended up never pulling it with anything other my Excursion, got 16mpg roundtrip to Florida at 72-75.
