I think D-mo must have meant me. A working man I am and planning to stay that way for awhile - three DDs, which mean three college educations and three weddings. Lucky for me in the meantime that I have a lot of flexibity for our hobbies such as camping.

Antone (from Sydney, Aus)
We have an A126 that has a sofa that makes into the bed. It's just the two of us and we were leaving the sofa folded out into a bed pretty much all the time. So, instead of wearing out the sofa cushions, we stored them away and purchased a standard full size foam mattress. The main reason for buying a foam mattress is that they are lighter than inner spring mattresses.

The mattress fits perfectly width wise, but is short in length. Rockford A frames width measure 81" which is the length of the bed in the unit. A standard full size mattress is 75" long, so it's about 6" short. I suppose you could get a specialty mattress that would fit exactly, but we preferred not to spend the extra $$ on that. Also, standard bed sheets fit without problem.

storage bins ...

My thoughts on storage bins ... they bring along alot of stuff that you really dont need ... and cause extra weight on the tonge.
My previous trailer had a storage bin on the front, which was great for a tent trailer. We put our cranks and bed extenders and other stuff in it .. but basically it was a nice to have, not a necessity. With the amount of storage available on the A122 we were able to simply move the stuff we wanted to under the bed, and throw the rest out. The A122 has more than enough room .. with enough acess points. The storage bin on these trailers, in my estimation is overkill ... and a quick way to put another option on the table for consumers.
We now carry way more in our A122 than our tent trailer ....and you will find that there is more than enough room on top of both the bed and dinnet to carry chairs and solar panels.
I purchased mine at Travelmor trailers, a great family owned outfit that cares about their clients. Hope this helps .. pm me if you have any questions at all .. more than happy to help.
