Do you see many other A-Frames when you camp?

Our 2nd trip - 2nd park - and both times, we were the only A Frame in the park. I'd say 75% of people who drive by point and make a comment like 'look at that one! cool!'. Both times, we had people approach and ask questions and look inside. I figured being in central Indiana, they'd be all over the place but I guess not, huh???

I have made similar observations. The DW and I were recently in the Great Smoky Mountain national park and Pinery Provincial Park in Canada and there was only one a-frame in each park. Rockwood - GSMNP, Aliner - Pinery.

I went to the Forest River factory today and the rep told me that FR is going to put greater emphasis on the A-frame models.

we camp at least 15 weekends a year, and I would doubt I even see 2 A frames a year.

Interesting camping at TRF there are normally several other AFrames around. But at state parks or RV parks we are normally the only AFrames around. Guess Rennies like them for the easy set up or the fact that there are 3 to 4 thousand campers at TRF makes a different

I was in Smoky mountains Cosby campground recently and saw one Rockwood there but don't usually see a lot of a frames in campgrounds. I've been to three campgrounds this past week and there were no a frames.

AFrames certainly are a small niche of within the niche of folding camper. But I see them occasionally. As one would expect, they are more visible at bigger parks with more open campgrounds where I will often see one or two other AFrames.
