Longest You've Camped In Your Aframe

I was reading about folks that went full time rv'ing. It got me to thinking:

What is the longest you have ever spent in your aframe camping?

What is the fartherest distance you have ever pulled your camper?


I would love to spend time visiting all of Texas and especially visiting every state park in Texas.

I'm not saying I want to go full timing in my Aframe but just curious how long you have camped in yours at a time.

I spend a week (ok...4 nights) in mine each year but I could handle much more. Being retired now I'm getting the traveling bug really bad.

We did a trip to Alaska this year, 6 weeks and 9000 miles. We have done 4 other trips of 3 weeks. I am guessing we have about 25k on the A-frame total. We have now done more then half of the National parks in this trailer.

I traveled 2500 miles round trip from Florida to Ohio over a 2 week period in October: camped 5 nights in SC at Lake Wateree, then on to Ohio with 5 nites boondocking/sister's home, then back to Florida. I then began problems with the microwave door hanging by one hinge, co alarm going haywire, and radio buttons working strangely...I guess it just didn't like the mountain driving, cuz I don't recall any major bumps !

What kind of A frame do you have? Did you have a significant number of miles on gravel? When did you travel to Alaska? We are thinking about going to the Arctic Circle just beyond Eagle Plains in the Yukon.

Thanks

I have a 2014 Flagstaff T12RBST.
They do a lot of road maintenance in the summer so some gravel, we did hit one super big bad Pot hole, cover with water, that I just knew that the big window would be broken, but all was fine.
We removed the micro wave, and and had a rope to keep the ice box door close.
Here are some of the place we did. Tok, Fairbanks, Denali National Park, Anchorage, Whittier, Homer, Valdez.
Tok to Chicken without trailer. Gravel but most better then some paved roads.
The road from Jasper to Banff in Canada is a must do.
We enter Canada just east of Glacier National Park.
Did the trip this last Aug and Sept.
Get the miles post book and any time the gas tank is less then 3/4 full, fill up.

36 days, 9560 miles to Alaska in 2013. Several 2-3 weeks trips since and several shorter stays. Headed back to Alaska for seven weeks soon. We have since removed the microwave and heat pump. Approximately 800 miles on gravel during the Alaska trip. No problem expect pulling loose a brake wire when boarding the Yukon River ferry at Dawson. An easy fix.
