Hi, welcome to the forum!
We have a A128s.
To date, we have not had it out for more than 3 nights. (I hope that will change in September when I finally take some vacation time.)
My wife and I carry enough to be comfortable. We don't carry lots of entertainment equipment except for e-book readers. She carries her painting items and occasionally other small craft stuff. The stereo system has a large number of MP3's on an SDHC card. This doesn't mean that we won't carry a TV or larger computer, etc. We just don't at this time.
We try to carry fairly light bulky stuff in the front storage compartment. These items include: porta potty, popup shower, tarp, chairs, jacks, leveling blocks, rug, and the heaviest item - the awning.
We fill up the fridge (and carry a small cooler as well.) The small storage area to the next to the sink is our pantry for non-perishable items (and it holds pots and pans as well.). Under the sink is plates, cups, and miscellaneous kitchen stuff.
Clothes, bedding and personal care items, make up most of the of items carried under the left front storage.
We keep a couple of collapsible picnic baskets at the nose (front dinette) with snacks, coffee, paper plates, etc.
I carry the grill, grill table, a dutch oven, a few tools, and duct tape, in the back and side compartments on the microwave side.
The first aid kit, small repair items, and flash lights are stored under the microwave.
Inside the cabin is a fair number of throw pillows.
Finally, we keep the back dinette backboard up most of the time. Behind it we store miscellaneous things like camera cases, some bedding, shaving kit, and other need it quick stuff.
We've tent camped for years, so for us less is just fine. The amount we carry is way more than we were used to. We're just more comfortable now...
