sewer hose question

It appears looking at the Casita forum that practically everyone there has switched to the Rhinoflex sewer hose. Do Scamp owners also prefer the Rhinoflex? I realize it does not fit inside Scamp's hose carrier, but that would be no problem for me to solve IF the Rhinoflex is truly superior on all trailers. Your thoughts please...

Thicker vinyl SHOULD resist chafe and puncture better than thin. UV radiation rots all vinyl hose. I have a pinhole in the generic blue stuff right now. Maybe I'll spend more next time and make the first pinhole really matter. You're paying for the ability of this stuff to get small when not in use. That ability may not be compatible with longevity.

A pin hole in a sewer hose is If you've been following the CasitaForum, you know there are solutions for storing the hose and fittings... starting with a vinyl fence post. There's no way you'll cram all that in the stubby tube Scamp rivets on the front of the trailer (which is fugly). You'll figure out a solution that works the best for you... which means you'll either dump everything into a closed tub that you put in the trailer or tug... or mount the "fence post" somewhere on the trailer frame or rear bumper.
