LOL - The monkeys are silly...people always point and stare at the A-Frame (prob trying to figure out how anyone can fit inside such a small appearing trailer) so I told DH I might as well give them a reason to look and point and not feel awkward. LOL

Oh gosh HERmit, my sister said the same thing! Wall written has some awesome designs and makea me want to order more for the house in the kitchen and laundry room, the bathroom. Putting them in the trailer was an experiment to see how well they went on and held up & so far, I am extremely pleased. When you get your trailer back, you'll have to show us what you did...its a great way for a pop of color on the wall too!

Oh the avatar is of fireworks in the nite sky....I think I'll switch to one from this years fireworks.

Decided to make use of the tiny interior shelves inside the kitchen cabinet. It is now a mini mixer wet bar.

This is just an example of what a little imagination can do to make your A-Frame work for you.

Original table removed because it was so cumbersome.

I repurposed/up cycled my heavy 1970's camera tripod into an adjustable folding table. Perfect for our A-Frame needs especially since it travels flat and placed under the plank boards (they replaced the table as a bed) for travel. The tripod table can be raised from coffee table to dinner table height.

This project took my spouse a whopping 10 minutes or less of his time to put together. Took 2 days of mine, staining and finishing the table's surface. Haha

We just purchased our aframe in May, 2014,,,and I have to tell you I have been having so much fun searching this forum. I copied your "Not all who Wander are Lost" art work, however, I have already messed one up trying to put it up...so I am letting my sweet daughter inlaw install the next one....I found some with birds and butterflies on tree limbs and want her to install those also...she will be very busy on our next camping trip to Chattahoochie Bend State Park in Georgia in early October. Thank you and everyone for posting the pictures of all your creations...We love our aframe...and can't wait to set out for some long adventures with it and our little four legged children..

It's a great feeling to put ones personal stamp inside their A-Frame! Mine is now my big girl dollhouse. It's a very functional camper with the small touches that gives me a small space of peace when solo on the road or camping adventures with my spouse. Glad to see you having decorating fun with yours!

Funny Tom! I am still waiting to see what Weezer has done in hers!!

I can't be the only one who has decorated/personalized their space. Especially interested in seeing how my fellow A-Framers are making their unit's space work for them....

Here is another easy addition I added this summer - makes things convenient when using the stove or outside grill. Always nice to know where the lighter is without having to ask each other. Haha

Great idea. If I didn't camp alone I would do the same. However, I see this working for some members of the family for BBQs and parties. They are always looking high and low for a lighter.
