Had a great to to Prince Edward Island.

We had a great trip to PEI and then up to Gaspe.
We did 3100 miles with no problems.... Well one night we had a storm come through and it started to move the roof. I put a ratchet strap over it to hold it down, it was a very bad storm. All the campers around us was hooking up to their cars to hold them down. The 128 rockwood was really rockin that night( my wife thought we were going to die lol).
On the way up we hit hard rain for two days but no leaks at all. Last year we had a little guy teardrop 6 wide and went out West with it. It's a great camper but we both like the A Frame much better. If you ever get a chance take the trip up and around Gaspe.
We pulled it with our 2013 F150 ecoboost and got 16 mpg, about the same as pulling the teardrop.
Last year with the teardrop we got 15 mpg but it was more open roads and I was traveling 75 mph this year around 70 mph.

The one think that did give me a little problem was the refrigerator would go out (propane) when traveling. So I got some duct tape and taped the two lower fins inside the cover while traveling and then when camping take it off.
That worked great.
The covers let to much wind in while traveling.
The last few days I left it on propane the whole time. It was set on 4 and I had a water bottle on the bottom shelf froze solid..... It works great.

Beautiful pictures... we're at a campground? ... or just a secluded spot you found?

We were disappointed with PEI and shocked at what it cost us to get off the island.

Now if you really want to see fantastic scenery then push on to Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia and do the Cabot Trail. Here's a website to check it outCape Breton Island, Nova Scotia – Official Travel Guide - Home

We had a great time up there and whale watching is something not to miss.

Thanks for the info.

And when you get disappointed with Cape Breton and really want to see even more fantastic scenery then you have to go to Newfoundland.
