I'm confused! What exactly is a "High Wall Pop Up"???
High walls mean you don't have to flip up the galley area, counter tops are higher meaning more storage available in the cabinets. Hardwall wet bath areas. However they are heavier and higher than regular popups. Here's a link to one manufacturer so you can see the pics for yourself. As the pics scroll take a look at the 3rd one for a good interior shot.
Jayco used to make a HW popup. I just checked their website and they don't come up anymore so maybe they discontinued the series. We used to have a Fleetwood Hemlock. Same floor plan but they changed the name to Niagra after a year. Build quality was great.
I made one using 3/4" plywood.
I see your cutting board on photobucket and I believe the Atwood bi-fold just under it.
Yup, DW wanted something more sturdy than the metal cover. Actually we don't use the one I made as a cutting board directly but do put a plastic cutting board on it when needed.
Sorry to hear about her passing. Hopefully the legacy will live on and the work continue. When we were at the Crazy Horse Monument I was in awe that a private venture could take on such a task. Leaving our donation behind made us feel good.
We're on a seasonal sight so I can't help with your towing question but you might also want to post your question over at the Forest River Forum under the Palomino thread: Link:http://www.forestriverforums.com/forums/f96/
BYW, as you can see by our sig we have a 34REQS-6 and are extremely happy with it.
Congrats on your retirement and thank you for your service to our country. I've been retired 4 years. I was in line at a grocery store once and a lady who only had a few items and 4 kids was behind me. I told her to go ahead of me. She thanked me and I told her ever since I retired I'm never in a hurry any more :).
