Why a Rockwood over a Flagstaff or vice versa?

I am shopping pop-ups. I'll be buying a new vehicle to tow in a couple months and I'll probably buy the pop-up next spring. On my list of pop-up brands are both the Flagstaff and the Rockwood.

What are the differences? Are there any workmanship differences or differences in the quality of the materials or is it just a matter of features and different floorplans?

Cosmetic differences only. Otherwise they are the same.

Same units different colors/patterns. If I am not mistaken they are built on the same production lines

Nothing against Flagstaff or Rockwood-(I own a Flagstaff,) but have you checked out Coleman/Fleetwood? I owned 2 before this Flagstaff, and they were very good campers. What sold me was the sunbrella 304 fabric- virtually mildew proof, and the stainless steel risers and aircraft cables for the lifting system. I had a 94 Pioneer chesapeake, and then a bigger 01 Utah CP model with a dinette slide out, and a couch, front storage compt, cassette potty, fridge, water heater, outside shower, and king beds on each end.
AC and awning, but no heater. Easy to pull, also. Good Luck! Randy

Warning! Be sure to "check out" your dealer. Some dealers will not stand behind their products while others are really helpful. If you are in Arkansas, be wary of RV City. If you have a few minor problems, don't fret over them, but if any major things go wrong, you will be pretty much on your own.

Hope you have good luck with your purchase and post some pics. We love pics and especially pics of mods!

I originally thought about the high walls. I am first buying the tow vehicle this fall, then the camper this spring so I was thinking about getting something that could tow the biggest pop-ups so I could get whatever I wanted. However, as I've been researching I've found I can get the features I want on a smaller pop-up so I probably will go with something smaller so I can get a smaller tow vehicle with better gas mileage (the vehicle will also be my daily driver). Also, it is just me much of the time (I'm single, though I will sometimes have friends with me) so for those times I'm alone I'm thinking it may be best to avoid extra pull-outs to minimize set up time (and most highwalls have pull-outs). I don't need that much space anyway (just want a cassette toilet and shower, and at minimum double bed sized bunks so I can have guests).

So, I'll probably be looking primarily at 10' and 12' box pop-ups.
