Fold Down Camping (A-style)

Anyone else out there have the fold down by Rockwood/Forest River?
We absolutely love ours. It's loaded and has everything we need. Saw one online being set up and then folded down, then one caught our eye at an rv show. Had to have one!!
And from what I've seen for pricing on this one and competitors, we got a fantastic deal on this one, with a free 4400 generator thrown in for the rv show freebee.
Just wanted to throw this thread out there to see if anyone else has the A-style camper!

Is this similar to the "A-Liner" trailers? I was looking at those before I went with a regular hard shell trailer with upright walls included. Being short and RVing solo made a big impact on my choice.

Everytime I come across one I give it another look.

Sounds like a great trailer at a great price and comes with a great generator!

Congrats and welcome to the forum.

Post us some pics if you get a chance. Would love to get a look at your new trailer.

I just looked at the FR site at the folding trailers. While the folding walls concept might be similar to the A-Liner the FR line is much nicer! Just from the pictures I like the Rockwood layout a lot. Gosh - what a big difference your trailer is from what I was looking at. FR really make some nice stuff.

You will have lots of good times to come. Feel free to post pictures. Congrats on your new toy!

Hi again-- yes Terier, the Rockwood is much nicer than the Aliner brand. And for the record, my husband is 6'5" and he fits very well on the bed and has at least a foot of clearance over his head when standing at center. It is surprisingly roomy. I also am finding out that it is also less likely to have roof leaks like flat rooftops on conventional campers/trailers. I think what sold my husband is that it's all hard sides and top. He wanted nothing to do with canvas/poly/vinyl, or whatever is used for the pop-ups. What sold me was the generator included. We camp on a primitive site. I'm not big on having my neighbors right by me.

As for posting pictures, I don't know how but will try and figure it out someday!

Oh yeah, forgot to mention, that a man about 5' tall was setting up the camper when we stopped to watch him at the rv show. It took him all of about 3 minutes to do, by himself. There is some kind of patented lift system built in to the roof making it absolutely simple to set up and fold down.

Getting the generator tossed in is real nice - sounds like you will be putting it to good use.

You can add pictures by clicking on the paper clip icon for attachments and follow the steps. I have noticed there are different ways to reply to posts and not all of them have the same options.

Hi all. Just bought an A128 today. Got it home and it has been storming ever since. Haven't even set it up yet. Went from a 23' travel trailer to a regular popup to this hardsided popup. So excited to try it out in the next couple weeks. We love the towability of these along with not having to deal with the canvas. The popup was just a stop gap as I wanted one of these since I sold my tt. Only kept the popup a couple weeks but made a few dollars on it. Hope to post more with pics later.
