Other RVs - crazy stupid waste valve locations


Recommended Posts

Most RVs have ugly pipes hanging down in plain view. Every now and then I see a design that leaves me shaking my head in disbelief. Here is a T@b:

Imagine a rock or piece of truck tire carcass flying up onto those valves. Imagine dragging the tongue over a curb when climbing a steep driveway. It could dump one or both tanks onto the road or rip the tank clean off. And Nucamp does not provide a place to store the stinky hose - I guess it could go in a bucket in your truck....  Their off-road model is 4” higher but that still is inadequate. Why do buyers put up with this?

Probably most of us have had other RV's and were happy with them for what they were at the time, this is true with just about everything in life, our autos, our homes, ever our first wives, ok, maybe the last one is to the extreme. I meet people everyday that are thinking about an RV and of course they will tell you about what they have in mind, usually it's something that falls in there price range and what would work for them and there family. If they ask me what we have I will tell them and in most cases they have never heard of an Oliver and it stops there. Let others do what they want, or feel what they need for there use, we probably started the same way and we graduated in in time, let them do the same.
