    We tow with my 2003 Dodge Durango or my husband's 2007 Dodge Durango. Both vehicles can tow with no problems.

    Strange, I was just reading through this thread last night and this morning I passed a Rockwood HW for sale for what
    seemed to be a pretty reasonable price. It was down, so no telling what options it had, but it was the darker tan/brown
    color so I figure it's newish, as to the year at least. Not sure of the model, but it was the BIG one w/dual axles.
    $5900.00 is what the price was, it was on a very small used car lot that the owner seems to always have a TT or two
    for sale.

    If I was in the market for a highwall popup I'd be looking for a used Fleetwood Highlander model as the closed height of these trailers is dramatically less than these Rockwood highwalls which are ridiculously tall. As I recall the most popular Fleetwood Niagara was ~ 5' 4" tall when closed and even the dual axle monster 2011 Avalon was only 5' 7" - that's not anywhere near as tall as these Rockwood highwalls which are just under 7' ! [EEK] In that case one might as well be towing a full height travel trailer. :tongue:

    Wow, maybe this was a Fleetwood Avalon cuz no way it was 7’ tall. That’s not a lot shorter than my dark side unit

    Maybe the almost 7' includes AC?

    My Fleetwood is (as far as I can tell) basically a Niagara without the microwave and is about 5'8", and that's after an axle "flip" but without measuring the AC (because I don't have it). It seems kind of ginormous to me!

    Nope, that's the height of the Rockwood roof when it's down in the travel position - 6'7", 6'7", and 6'9" for the 3 current highwall models. A standard A/C like a Coleman Mach 3+ would add another 13". :eek:

    Your 2008 Arcadia's spec'd height is 5' 4", a heck of a lot shorter than these Rockwood highwalls. [A]

    That's just weird. I've been inside them (the 2018 model Rockwoods) and they don't seem much taller inside. I wonder where they put the height. Better ground clearance maybe? I think they do have bigger tires and a double step to get in.

    Yeah, not sure, but your Arcadia is plenty high enough inside.
