That's a nice looking camper. I like the diamond plating all the way around. My A122SXR just has it on the front. I wonder what the hatch between the 30 amp plug and furnace intake/exhaust is for? Maybe just to be able to reach the low point drains? Also nice to see that FR is adding usb ports below the thermostat. Not quite as nice as my 12 volt/usb/voltmeter mod I put in, but a step in the right direction.

I'm not a fan of racks on an A-Frame but seeing this picture and the way they installed them, I think I found a way to protect the roof windows when in storage. You lay a sheet of plywood or something else that's suitable and fasten it to the racks. I'm always concerned when a severe storm is coming and that dreaded hail damage. I need to talk to my friendly welding shop who does a lot of work with aluminum. He makes all his utility trailers out of aluminum and does a great job. Or, go to a boat cover maker and have a suitable cover made and fasten it to the racks. This would much lighter in weight and easy to store.

I noticed two more things about this camper.

First the trunk cover is not flat but has ribs. It looks more substantial but not like a good place to put a beverage while setting up.

Second the reflection on the side of the camper changes notably around the side attachment points for the struts. The pattern going from vertical to circular at the strut reveals some type of a dimple in the side there.
