I have better luck with the medium duty conventional vinyl hoses. I find that I can fit a 10' and a 20' hose in the storage tube that way.
Have tried the Rhinoflex.
It is my experience that all hoses will last until someone steps on them at which point even the expensive ones fail. My 10' vinyl one is 3 years old and still going strong. I carry some extras in the bumper along with elbows and adapters.
