dual waste valve assembly

i'm looking for a dual waste valve assembly that allows for a 1 1/2" gray dump valve and a 3" black dump valve. the picture below (on the right is exactly what i'm looking for). this is a valterra product sold by pplmotorhomes.



my question is does thetford make an assembly like this? i looked on their website and it doesn't appear they do. if i wanted to go with thetford, would i need to build this assembly?

what do they use on the newer airstreams? from what i've been reading the thetford valves are the best.

I agree that the Thetford valves are possibly of better quality for teh long haul. However, their outlets are not standard size, so an adapter is often needed to fit a standard swere hose to a Thetford outlet.
Valterra ist the industry standard rightnow, parts are available everywhere and for small $$. Most sewer hoses and adapters fit it fine, and so far, i have not had any trouble with my Valterra valves.
Valterra brand is also standard now on new Airstreams.
