New A122S owners-to-be

My husband and I put a deposit down on an A122S today. We're in San Francisco and the A122S is in Oregon, so we'll be driving up sometime in the next two weeks to pick it up. A good friend went to the dealer for us, inspected the camper and got the price we wanted. We've been reading all of the A Frame posts and like a lot of posters, we're retired, ex-tent campers who want a little more comfort. We also have two greyhounds who like comfort and take up a lot of space. We're going to take a shake down cruise to the Oregon Coast before heading back to San Francisco. Wish us luck!

Welcome to the forum and Aframe fun!
You'll appreciate the ease of setup and comfort sleeping up off the ground. The option to use AC or furnace enhances the experience as well.

I'm curious about your greyhounds, are they retired too?

Welcome aboard!!
We did the same as you. We put a deposit down on our A126 & picked it up in Ohio last September. From there we drove to and camped for the weekend in Bedford, PA.
We had been watching this camper on line for several months. Finally decided to persue it. We are very pleased with it. Enjoy your new camper, have fun, stay safe and don't be afraid to ask about any concerns you may have about your A Frame. Everyone here is more then happy to give advise and some damned good tips. Again welcome aboard!!!

Felix (6) and Cleo (3 1/2) are retired and enjoying the good life. They did really well camping last year and have even taken to trail in their hiking boots.

Awesome! You're giving them a more enhanced life in the great outdoors.
Camping and hiking is a wonderful way to spend retirement.

Congrats,
Deb
