When the service department at the dealership tried to replace my "wood" panel they found it glued very good and couldn't remove it without damage to the insulation. I'm living with the small dime size dent/hole for now and it's becoming less noticable as time goes on.

The fridge door came open while driving and made contact with a small rubber bumper I placed on a door handle the day before. Without the rubber bumper the door panel would not had touch the handle at all due to the position of the door's plastic frame.

My Igloo ice chest has some dents and dings, too. My A122 has some mars on the ceiling. My table has a few scratches. It ain't a Ferrari, it's a CAMP trailer. I really like mine.

My apologies D-mo (you grump). I did make kind of a flip comment there. I just don't expect Airstream quality in a $14,000 very lightweight trailer, and I expect my equipment to bear some wear and tear out in the outdoors.

Check out this post. It'll make you think about how good your tires are. A caution for us all. After all that he still loves his Hardside. Talk about steadfast! Three cheers.

While shopping for my A122 this past week I noticed many descriptions which described "Stainless steel "like" appliances, not that they were true stainless steel, just as the sink really didin't look like the one in my kitchen for example, only that it was a gray color.

The refrigerator door panel isn't steel either, it's some sort of foil glued to a thin wood panel. That doesn't detract from its usefulness or appearance, but it does make the panel less immune to damage. Don't stow anything near it while traveling, and make sure the door's travel latch is tight. Someday if I want to spend the money I'll switch out the plastic sink for a steel one, but for the present it all works just fine. The triple-power fridge can freeze your stuff, so watch it while you camp. I had to turn ours down twice or more to keep lettuce from freezing. Ours works best on 110v or on gas; it does ok on 12v but doesn't cool as aggressively as on either of the other two power sources.

I updated the kitchen this winter in my A122, I will post up a step by step guide on the upgrades, the plastic sink and fake stainless fridge door had to go....
Folding the trailer is a little more complicated.

Wow, Mike! Heckuva nice job. A built-in espresso maker would've been a nice added touch, but could make it seem cluttered I suppose... Guess I'll have to go ahead with the piano bar mod I'd been thinking of just to keep up.
