Smile Hey All! New RVer here!!!

Hey RVers!

I just bought my very first RV! I know it's just an A-Frame pop up camper, but I'm proud of it!

I've never done the RV thing, but have always been an outdoorsman and love to camp. Not a hunter though, not a huge fan of killing things.

Recently I relocated from Calgary for a job offer just North of Toronto. Currently I live in Kettleby, which is a small town just North of the City.

Looking forward to talking with all you!! and learning some great new spots!

The pic is of my exact Camper. Not mine, haven't had a good day to take the pics yet, but that's my baby! Got it for $3995.00 in Owen Sound. Was that a relatively good deal? I know it's older, but it sleeps myself and my fiancee rather well.

It may be that picture uploads don't go through for brand-new members; if it still won't work after you've posted 5 or 6 posts, let the moderators know. There might also be a thread about posting photos on one of the other FR forums. I post from an iPad/iPhone app so I'm not familiar with posting photos via desktop or laptops.

Meanwhile, know that we're very happy to have you aboard. There are lots of helpful people here so ask anything. One of our members (ko777) lives right in Toronto so you two could meet to problem-solve if its ever needed.

The price you paid is fabulous. My 2011 model was over $10K US when I got it. You didn't buy it after dark from a guy in an alley, did you? ;-)

Try your pic again! We love visuals.

Welcome to the "A Frame Campers" forum, where Aframe owners hang out. You've come to the right place, we love 'em.

Occasionally owners of other types of RVs read our posts and share their experiences as well. Lots of helpful folks to make you feel at home.

Hey Guys and Gals,

I just tried to upload the pic again 3 times but it keeps saying Failed to Upload. I'm not hugely tech savvy so I'm not quite sure lol.

On a sadder note, does anyone know how to deal with Mice in an RV? I did and inspection last night (just can't stay out of it haha), but found mouse dropping and chewed up carboard and the baseboard around the cabinetry. It wasn't there about a month ago.

I also checked the undercarriage and there seems to be a bit of damage so some of the wiring. As I am no mechanic I do not know what these wires are doing, but I'm pretty sure they're electrical and not brake lines or anything.

This is my baby and I just got it! Someone help!

-Aaron

I've not tried this but someone here posted that cotton balls soaked with oil of peppermint and spaced around inside the camper will discourage mice.

It doesn't seem likely that exposed wiring under the trailer would be anything other than brake or taillight wires. Higher voltage wires should be routed inside the unit. On my camper the wires that run along the axle from one wheel to the other (brake wiring) got severed last summer; maybe something like that's what you're seeing? (Sheer blind guessing here.) What brand is your camper? Three different companies make four different brands of Aframes.
