Living Area: Where Comfort Meets Style

First up, let’s talk about the living area of the Rockwood 2518S. It’s a bit different, I’ll admit. This floor plan is a bit like turning things inside out, but in a good way. They’ve placed the slide on the campside, which opens up some intriguing possibilities.

One thing that immediately stands out is the six-sided aluminum cage construction. Yep, that includes the roof, floor, and walls – basically everything that holds this beauty together. Even the bed is a part of the welded aluminum cage, ensuring durability and stability.

Kitchen: Culinary Creativity Awaits

Now, the kitchen is where this RV truly shines. It’s spacious, well-designed, and has ample prep space for all your culinary adventures on the road. They’ve even added a solid surface countertop, which is a thoughtful touch.

What’s neat is that they’ve not mounted the TV all the way up to the ceiling, making it a more comfortable viewing experience. Plus, it swings out to accommodate your preferences, whether you’re standing in the kitchen or lounging on the sofa. Convenience is key here.

Bathroom Features: Space to Freshen Up

The bathroom in the Rockwood 2518S is well-thought-out. It’s spacious enough for a comfortable experience, even for those with a larger stature. The shower features a water-saving system, perfect for boondocking adventures when you want to make the most of your fresh water supply.

And did you see that little accent nightLight under the vanity? It’s a small detail, but it adds a touch of convenience during those late-night bathroom visits.

Bedroom Features: Rest Easy

Moving on to the bedroom, you’ll find a short queen bed – 60 inches wide but a tad short at around 74-75 inches long. Now, this might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but there’s room to upgrade if you prefer a true queen-sized bed.

The bedroom closet slide provides ample storage, and they offer an option for a pivoting TV/DVD setup if you’re looking to catch a movie in bed.

Road Mode: Taking the Show on the Road

One of the cool things about the Rockwood 2518S is its road mode. The living room slide doesn’t overlap with essential areas, like the bathroom and bedroom. You can easily access these without having to extend the slide, which is a huge plus.

And those torsion axles and suspension system make for a smooth ride, even in challenging conditions. It’s a good match for half-ton trucks, keeping your journey comfortable and hassle-free.

Exterior: Durable and Thoughtful Design

The Rockwood 2518S boasts an impressive exterior. It’s constructed with Azdel on the inside and outside, with aluminum framing and laminated walls. Even the front wall behind the nose cap is fully laminated – a rare find in the RV world.
