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.

After only 3 years of use, my Rockwood HW 296 started to leak. The canvas, though cared for, clean, waxed began to leak. As well, the refrigerator just stopped working. I am second owner and spent 10,000 on this camper for mine and my families retirement after 24 years of military service. I had been away from family for over years total. This was my big purchase for a trip with my family out west. Guess who did not go out west? My family. I contacted Ray Brimmer, and Jacob carter from Rockwood and they told me it was my problem. Even though it was only 3 years old, the fact that I was not original owner voided warranty. TJ Snuggles who manufactures the canvas for Rockwood also would not do anything. The camper I just sold to buy this gem was 11 years old and did not leak ever, not even in a tropical storm in Destin, Florida, but my Rockwood High Wall 296 will soak through if you throw a cup of water on the canvas. Thanks for the great treatment Rockwood,mint is a pleasure serving money hungry, deceiving and miserable people such as yourselves. Do not buy a Rockwood. Trust me.
