Not sure what "TRF" is, unless just stand for "The Ren Faire".

A "Rennie" is someone who works at the Renaissance Faire.

Over the last two weeks, we were in four different campgrounds (SC, WV, and PA) and only saw one other Aframe. We turned lots of heads and gave about a dozen tours.

Love it!!! We went again this past weekend - not another A Frame in sight! We parked next to a Little Guy. Which is what we were originally going to get before we discovered the A Frames. We are so glad we made the A Frame choice! They had a great set up, but a tent attached to the trailer, storage container on top of it, huge ac unit attached to the front, storage attached to the front as well. They had to have spent at least what we did if not more.

Been camping over a year and last weekend in Hillsborough State Park in Florida there were three A-Frames in the same loop. It was nice to see.

TRF is Texas Renaissance festival. It is the largest in the country and is outside Heston. Rennies are those that follow the renaissance around the country either working or just attending. Depending on who you ask it can be a negative term like carny for someone that works the carnival circuit

I do not own an A-frame, but since the question was placed.
The answer is I have not seen an A-frame at any campground I have camped at in the past two years. Also don't see many popup tent campers either. Might be cause most of the FS campgrounds I camp in do have bear warnings.

An A-frame was what got my curiosity up when I started thinking of jumping from a tent to a small trailer.

Seen a boat load of them in SW Utah this year. Must be a location thing.
