A124 first trip

Wow. Our Aliner was an 05 so maybe not a fair comparison, but this camper rocks. I love the center bath. My main complaint with the Aliner was having to stoop to shower or... The. 124 is six inches wider. Feels like more. The cool cat cools great. It was hot when we set up and even with the door open it cooled it down.

Screen room. I didn't want to set it up. I am not into a bunch of complicated set up...thats why we bought an A frame. She who must be obeyed "suggested" that we set it up. We did and have spent the whole afternoon/evening out here. In the rain. Cooking steaks on the grill. It is a little chilly outside, but toasty in here. Makes the camper feel even larger.

Final grade...A plus. There are a few issues, but overall the whole package has exceeded my expectations. Very happy A frame owner.

Glad to hear that you are in love and enjoying it. The more you install the screen room the easier and quicker it should become. Can't agure about the extra living space it provides.





OK, not worthless but pictures would be nice.

Good deal! Yes, the awning has become worth the hassle for us as well. Good times

The awning does doubles your space! I can see why someone would like to have it. Thanks for the pictures.

Nice pic's. I like the awning but too much money for me. Saving for retirement so we watch the pennies. Glad you are enjoying the camper.

I agree about the cost of the awning. Had it not been a package deal with the camper, Id not have opted for it.

The photos are great! Thanks for taking the time to post and share! I am just going to have to practice the awning set up. LOL I have no doubt my spouse will give me his input in simplifying set up when I am by myself...then again, when at the shows, there is always a friend or two willing to lend a hand. hehe Your set up looks wonderful!
