We have the '17 HW192 and love it! We've been out in it on several weekends now and believe it is a well-built camper.

Thanks Jodlic. I can't wait. Sold my 24 ft. travel trailer in April. I was pleased with the quality when I looked at them. I actually have not seen the A192HW, only the 212 and 213 and the twin bed models along with the A122.

I wanted the HW for the fridge and not having to stoop at the counters. I am hoping it will fit in my garage also.

How was the towing?

greatblue7, the towing is just fine. We have a 2016 Honda Pilot with tow package. Hardly know the camper is back there. No sway issues at all, but we do feel it when there's a really strong cross wind!

We store it in the third stall of our garage and still have room for a lawn tractor, canoe, and kayak. (it's a tight fit but it works)

Love the higher counter in the high wall, and also the bigger fridge. The bed is a nice size too. We bought a 3" memory foam topper for it and it's very comfy. Another positive of the high wall version is that whoever is sleeping next to the wall doesn't bonk their head when they sit up. That bit of extra height between the bed and the slanting roof makes a big difference.

You do stumble over each other since there isn't a lot of floor space but that's pretty much the norm in any a frame camper

Jodlic, we will be towing with a Nissan Frontier. I have a Husky Centerline TS weight distribution/sway control hitch left over from my larger camper that we will be using. Hopefully this will help. I do think the A192HW will be so much easier for us to tow and handle. Can't wait till Tuesday to pick it up!
