OK, I admit it has taken me more time to get around to posting this than the trip lasted! Although a short trip - had to get back to take care of the grandkids - it did allow sufficient time to get to know our A122. However, I expect there will be some re-learning next trip.
We were pleasantly surprised that everything worked as intended. Set-up and leveling went well, although admittedly it was not a challenging site. The power jack made quick work of front-to-back and the BAL leveler made it a snap to do the side-to-side. Raising the roof & sides went smoothly although we didn't use the awning & screen room. We'll save that for a longer trip. As for pulling things out of storage from the truck & trailer, lessons were learned about what would store more easily where and the order of access. Tips from other members came to mind quickly too!
All the 'utilities' worked fine, so fingers crossed, nothing yet to go back to the dealer about.
We now have a pretty good idea of what sized bins are needed and where to keep them. For example, the under-bed compartment seems best suited for items taken out once at the beginning & put back once at the end. We think the storage will be adequate for us as-is when you throw in the screen room for the more frequently used items and the truck bed for the less frequently used. We are light packers and ex-tenters so for us it's a step up in convenience.
As others have noted, we had more than a few pointing and waving incidents and a couple of 'tours', including the nice folks from the Itasca beast next door. You guessed it, they're thinking about down-sizing. Maybe not to our kind of right-size but these units do seem get people thinking!
Heading out. One of our main requirements was something that
could go in the garage and leave on a moments notice.
Note motorcycle still under wraps, but not for much longer!
Thea setting up inside.
Birch Bay State park, Washington. Great park, close to home.
Looking up through the bubble. What a nice view to wake up to.
One-match Thea strikes again. Literally.
Packing up to come home. Must get out again soon!
