WOW! Five million miles in 60 days

Over 83,000 miles a day!

If your driving only 8 hours a day, that's 10,500 miles an hour! You must have one heck of a truck - must be rocket powered.

Don't you know trailer tires are only good for 65 MPH.

I don't think you can go wrong with either brand. Last summer I was in the same position Rockwood or Jayco, the dealer carried both but didn't have to many Aframe models in stock. I wanted one with the large toy hauler deck that would haul an aluminum trailer with my inflatable zodiac boat on it. Both brands used similar quality products inside, was hard to tell them apart on the inside. I went with the Jayco 12HFD due to the front deck was larger and it came with their baja package which included 15" aluminum wheels. Jayco includes a two year warranty, and lifetime warranty on the floor and roof. Only problem I had in the first year was the mattress stitching came apart and the small vent on the HWT cover blew off somewhere, all I did was send the salesman pictures and he ordered both and had them shipped to me, nice since he is two hours away. And no Jayco is not getting out of the Aframe market, they have several new floor plans for 2017.

If you go onto the Jayco site, you will note that A-Frame availability is limited to what dealers have in stock.

Starcraft (a division of Jayco) is no longer producing A-Frames. My guess is that with Thor's recent aquisition of Jayco, they may have decided to discontinue their manufacture as well (evidenced by only offering dealer stock on hand). Years ago I looked at an upcoming line of new trailer models that never materialized... the model was discontinued despite the printed brochure I received. LOL - in the rv world things can come and go rather quickly.

Ensure you'll receive long term support for your type of trailer should you need it. It would be one of those buyer beware things...

I also noticed on Jayco's website that while there is a brochure for the 2016 a frames, there is no brochure for 2017. The only 2017 pop up brochure I see listed is the Jay sport, no a frames at all.

I'm also in NWA, and I have the Forest River A122S. I absolutely love it!

Audi Q5 + 2015 A-122S = happy camper!

2015 A122S "The next campsite tour of this type of intriguing camper will begin in approximately 15 minutes. We ask that you refrain from any flash photography as it tends to wake the native inhabitants..."

Camped 6 times in 2014, 5 times so for in 2015
