Just got back from my first trip and no problems or issues to report. The SXR tows so much better than my old A122, I guess this is due to the extra length and better tires. The extra storage is really nice, I basically just need to pack food and drinks.

I know this is an older thread.. but just wondering how your camper is doing? Still happy? I love the idea of no bubble windows. I bought my 2014 a122s, used.. so didn't have the option of asking for no windows.

I agree.. for me the bubble windows serve no real purpose.. wish I didn't have them. But.. I bought a role of ETERNABOND.. gonna try and avoid future leaks.

I was able to get a lot of trips in and spent enough time in the camper to confirm that the bubble windows are more trouble than they are worth. My camper has been pretty much trouble free and the build quality was way better than my 2012 A122. I really have piece of mind knowing that I won`t have any issues with leaks. The camper still has the open bright feel to it even without the bubble windows.

I hope this helps!

Greetings Mike G. I'm thinking of getting a SXR and was wondering how you are liking the more ground clearance? Does it make a difference? Are there any other features for off-road adventure such as better suspension or better structural elements?
I used to have a 2014 A122 so I do have a point of comparison.
Thanks for your thoughts.

I wonder if you could put a kayak rack on the roof since there are no windows? Did the dealer say anything about that? Love your camper, look forward to some fall pictures.

I`m not sure what the dealer would say about a roof rack, but I would not recommend it. My Coleman pop-up had a rack on it, but the roof designs are totally different. I just bought a new tow vehicle so I hope I can get it setup for towing before winter sets in.
