But they do have some lower quality products with the same name on them!
We used to sell a certain brand T shirt at cat and dog shows, they cost us $10 to $12 each plus shipping. I now see the same brand at Wal*Mart for $7. The designs and colors are the same as what we still have but the quality of the shirt itelf is lower. I bought some because I liked the design but they are obviously thinner.
So, just because it's the same brand in the same box or tag remember that the quality might not be the same.

Used CAMCO hoses/chocks/fittings/etc for some 20 years without any problems. I would wonder if the skilled folks stocking the shelves may not have read that caution: "Do not use sharp objects to open package"

I have 4 houses ere. The Rinoflex is my second one. (That is I replaced the first Rinoflex) Do not recall if I got it at CW or Wal-mart. but both sell them.

The Camco Self-storing (comes in a sleeve) 20' hose is a replacement as well.

The short extension hose is almost new, got it about a year ago and it is an "original"

the el-cheapo that came with the motor home (The one in the "Starter pack" is still with me it is the oldest hose in the house.

Had a black cheap one, it was like a soaker hose. Pin holes all over. The best one I have is the heavy duty brown hose. Not sure of the name but it's been great.

Yikes - that is one thing I never thought would go wrong. With all the other stuff like backing into a tree, hooking up wrong, forgetting to do or undo something I will add this to the list or things that could go wrong...I have 5 years on my Rhino hose. It seems like the best.quality that was available.

Looks like Rhino wins out as everyone's favorite. Personally I had one and thought it was pretty good but didn't like the big ends. Switched to Valtera and like it much better.

If you buy a name brand sewer hose at wal mart or k mart or Camping World , quality
should be the same .. Nothing wrong in saving some dollars and getting a less
expensive hose at walmart .. it may not last as long but was cheaper to buy
