This is a great family camper. A pop-up that you can store in your garage, it has everything you need for state park camping; external shower to rinse off the dogs and kids straight out of the lake, and with our extras, all you need is a generator to go dry camping. With a 15 gallon exterior black water tank and 125 feet of cable to move your generator away from your bedroom and an extra battery, it's ready to camp tomorrow. I'll even throw in a 2 '' receiver hitch to put you on your way. This one spent its winters in a garage and it's summers under a canopy to keep away sun and weather damage. It's a great first time camper, as you don't have to empty your child's college fund to see if this is the fun activity you have been looking for, to make the most of your summers!

The HW296, was my 6th RV. I have had RV's from 19 to 32 feet. I bought into the 2 axle foldable camper idea, because they blend the best of both worlds. This High Wall tracks with the stability of a large towable, but tows like a folding camper. Storage is easier at only 22 feet closed. Fully deployed, 27 feet provides room to breath and enjoy real amenities. The High Wall designs allow for big beds, bathroom, big sink, adequate refrigerator, A/C, furnace, lots of storage and 360 degree views. In 2021, my Rockwood High Wall became the victim of a tornadic cross wind while heading West on I90 in South Dakota. It peeled the top off like a sardine can lid. My insurance company bought me a 32 foot Gray Wolf to replace it, because no High Walls were available. Well, less than 2 years later I am on the hunt for another HW296. They are just that appealing to me. As with any RV, there are pros and cons. However, if you want a low profile towable with great amenities, consider the biggest and best folding camper design in the industry, the Rockwood HW296.

Great camper for 2! So easy to put up, lightweight, and no worries while it's raining. Tons of storage, and we were able to build in dividers in the under dinette bench storage for our clothes. No duffle bags to worry about! Easy access to storage from several outside compartments. Love the griddle for out door cooking. Nice to have: AC/heat, HOT water, ceiling fan and led lights. Great upgrade from a tent or pop up- no leaky canvas to worry about! We've been able to camp with and without electricity utilizing the solar panel, and there is a plug for additional solar panels! The only thing we knew we had to do for safety was replace the factory tires.

I grew up camping in my parent's pop up. I then bought a used one in 2008 and owned it for 6 years. I purchased this Rockwood 1640LTD in 2022. While it is smaller than my parents & my previous one, one of the best things about a pop up is the fact that, like any pop up, because bunks that slide out, that makes it feel larger. Also, I know it will withstand quite a bit of wind, as we camped during a terrible thunderstorm with winds up to 40-45 mph which were shaking the entire camper. Everything stayed dry inside. It was a bit scary, and we did drop it down due to the high winds. The decor is nice. We've never really use the sink so I cannot speak to that. Storage is a bit minimal, but it's also a very small pop up so not much room for storage. But it holds everything we need - some tools, the extra jack stands we have, leveling items and stuff to lock up the camper. The one problem we had was our 12V refrigerator stopped working within the warranty. Contacted Geek Squad thru Best Buy as they handle that service. The c.s. rep could not find an exact replacement, so they sent the closest thing available model-number-wise. Well, that's a 110V unit, not a 12V one. So we do not have a working refrigerator, and I am still waiting for their response on how to fix this. Also, the small area of canvas on the front section by the door is a bit short by probably an inch or two, at least. It is very difficult to velcro that section into place. And pushing the metal braces into place for the bunk ends is quite the chore - they can be quite difficult to get all the way pushed out and set in place. Other than that, it's generally pretty easy to pop up and tow - we towed it with a Honda C-RV (!!) - mostly it's been great for us so far.

Will never by a Forest River popup again. Something breaks every time you use it and you feel like you’re just waiting for what’s next. Broken in first two years… Canopy, lock mechanism for bed pullouts, drapes, light/fan, door frame, front jack, wood trim mercilessly banged up. The floor plan is awful - the long sofa is uncomfortable and cushions too thin. The pullout support that makes the couch into a bed is poorly designed - moves around, you can feel the lip under your leg when sitting there. Can’t get the roof exterior clean. Electrical system is dumb - can’t lift the roof with shore power need the battery charged. Complete insanity how long they e been building these things and still can’t make them last.

This Fold up Unit in my opinion is worthless unless you are plugged in to power all the time! It does have a solar panel but will not charge or keep up with the electric refrigerator or the all electric hot water heater. Cannot use the RV for regular outback camping unless you are parked in a RV Park with full electric hookups! We did not know this when purchasing this Unit!

My wife and I purchased an Aframe hard side (A213HW) camper. We purchased it used from a dealership. Some of the positive things we found are the overall floor plan. We like the two single beds, lots of storage (could use more), and very easy to pull and setup. Once it's leveled, it only takes about 3 minutes to set up. Now for the only big problem we have. The actuator arm that lifts the top into position is a piece of junk. The design is totally wrong. If it rains, water is able to get into the gear and electrical housing. We are on our third arm in three years. Did I mention that we keep it in our garage when not in use. Luckily, I was able to redesign it as a backup. The manufacturer needs to spend some time and money to redesign it.

We got this camper in the fall of 2021 and before we left even brought it home we found holes in the tents. We decided to go on two camping trips with it before we got it fixed but as we were camping there was a leak in the outdoor kitchen. After our last trip we took it to get fixed and when we got it back we went on another trip and the curtain rods were falling of the ceiling so we fixed that our selves and hadn’t had a problem with it. We decided to go camping today but it wouldn’t pop up so we tried to pop it up manually but that didn’t work either so now we are going to drive home and not go camping. This is the worst camper ever do not get it.

The winch to raise the camper is loud AF, it is always on if you have the battery connected. If anyone touches the winch switch, wether by accident or on purpose in either the up or down position would lead to catastrophic failure. The wiring underneath is a mess of unprotected wires and wire nuts, not professionally done. There is no manual specific to the model, even still the "online manual" is so generic it could be applied to any rv. The slide outs for the beds are way to hard to move. The wifi antennae is backwards and full of moisture, there is no storage inside, there is but not enough with all the goofy gizmos. Save your money this POS makes me wanna 😢

The build quality was horrible. Had to replace lift system after 3 years. The black tank valve Broke off in my hand. Worst of all the front wall of the camper broke away from the sidewall causing the front bunk and wall to peel away from the rest of the camper. I believe it's a design flaw with the bunk end supports. I had high hopes that we would use this camper for many years but was fortunate to trade it in for what we paid for it. Also blew two tires . I feel the tires were at or near there max load carrying capacity. Also had to replace awning pole when one was bent.also microwave became dislodged from it's bracket causing the microwave to fall out.
