I love our aframe camper. For the type of camping my wife and I do it's perfect. We camped in tents for years and years. We usually camp for a weekend or even an overnighter at times. Once a year I do spend a week in mine at a Dulcimer Music Festival. Works perfect.
I hope this year we can start doing some traveling with ours and do more week long camping.
I can put the walls up in about 45 seconds. I'm a bit slow. When my wife is with me she likes for both sides to have the tables up. She gets one side and I get the other and then at nighttime we make them both into beds. When I'm by myself which is most of the time I just put one table up and leave the other into a bed.
We've never used our stove although I do turn it on usually to make sure it still works. We do all our cooking outside. We don't use our furnace although I again turn it on to make sure it works. We run a small ceramic heater and it heats it up perfectly. We DO run the air conditioner during the summer.
It tows great. With my Durango I got almost 19 miles per gallon on this last trip. I kept the speed down to 70 or below. Can't beat that for mileage.
If I was going to spend weeks and weeks on the road camping then I would probably go with a 5th wheel but for now the Aframe is perfect for us.
