Thanks
We headed up the Dempster and camped at Tombstone Prov Park mp 45. Parked the a-frame there and drove to mp 75. I have been as far as about mp 150 on a previous trip. Good gravel road, can be dusty.

Me and my navigator spent 5 weeks and 5000 miles this past July and August in the camper.



The A-Frame is a step down from our 38 foot motorhome that (with the bride) we spent 9 months and 27K miles touring the USA in 2011 and 2012.

We have been living in our trailer since mid October of this year, in our friends driveway. We have moved from California to Oregon, next year we should have a place of our own. Me, DW, DS and a mutt, we're learning what works and what doesn't as we go along. Ours isn't a A-frame but a enclosed small trailer, 18ft box, plugged into the house for shore power. We use a electric heater and not the propane furnace. It takes a bit of time to learn what works best to have in the trailer and what is really needed.

5970 miles in 3 weeks with 2 teenagers. 1400 miles and 6 weeks, just wife and I. Those TTs were 28'. Much more comfortable in a 35' 5er.

DH and I spent 22 days this summer - a week at FROG Rally, a week wandering thru Ohio, Penn and Virginia, and a week parked just north of DC. I thought we would be dying to be out of it, but, surprisingly, we just got more comfortable as time wore on. Have reservations in Florida for a month starting mid-January.

Any reason that you left the camper at Tok when you drove to Chicken? Our tentative plans are to travel top of the world on our return loop and continue to Arctic Circle and return down the Klondike highway.

We did not plan to travel that loop, but wanted to see Chicken.

Thanks. We will be pulling a Rockwood A124 hardside A frame. Do you know what kind of wheel bearings are on these campers? I am thinking that a spare set might be good, as the trip will be approximately 12,000 miles.

When we traveled from Dawson to Tok on the Top of the World Highway, we pulled our Flagstaff a-frame. Three days later we were visiting with a couple that had "traveled the worst road they had ever been one". After further visiting, they were talking about the Top of the World Highway and had traveled it the same day we had. My wife and I thought it was a better road than some we have around where we live. I guess all things are relative.
