That's smart, to do a photo of the box. I can read the model number easily. Does the cover come with those white flaps shading the tires, or did you add that refinement?

I've had our unit in storage about three weeks and already I'm missing it. Time to start on some project I guess. Maybe a mod for a second battery, like D-mo made.

The white flaps are just tire covers that I had left over from my pop-up camper, they really don`t fit to well.

If the weather stays this nice, I may get another trip in, fingers crossed.

Mike,
Due to the fact that the cover is on, does that mean you are done camping for the year? I'm hoping to see a few shots with the snow around you driveway spot. Also, you mentioned that you did a solo trip when you started this thread. Do you camp much by yourself? How is the A Frame for one person (I assume it's great, just curious on the thoughts of any solo campers).
John

I will camp until they start covering our roads with salt for the snow. My camper is winterized, but it is no big deal to just take a few jugs of water.

The a-frame is very easy to manage on solo trips, I like taking the family, but I also enjoy a few trips a year by myself. I think my wife likes to get rid of me for a few weekends, she can usually tell when I`m ready to go somewhere. I had a pop-up camper and that was getting to be to much setup work for a weekend trip, and was not fun when camping alone.

well that kinda makes me chuckle ...I've done a few solo trips myself this year with the A122 ... for a total of 9 days ... and yep .. its an easy one man job. Next year my first camping trip will be out to algonquin park for trout ... end of April, first week of May ... but most likely do it with a buddy .... the boys are lining up already for the first softwater fishing outing.

I will chew around for some pics of that area ... maybe of intrest for a few fisherman.

This isn't exactly a camping photo, but we couldn't wait... Gary and I set up our "Christmas present to each other" (an EZ-Up canopy with screen) in the garage after it arrived a few days ago.

We plan to camp in our A126 and use our new "accessory" a couple of nights on the return leg of a quickie trip to Florida in a few weeks. I'll post some of those pictures here then.

Deb,
The EZUp looks great. How EZ was it to set up. You garage is so tall, could you set up the A126 inside? If so, you can camp out all winter long!

Weeeel, that was why we tried it at home before attempting the setup out in public! hehe
It wasn't too difficult and no lawyers were called, so that's a good thing.
It set up pretty quickly, especially compared to an older version screen house that we had years ago, with the poles, guide wires and such.

Yes, our garage (and living quarters) is in a 12' tall building. We have set up our A126 right there after we purchased it and brought it home.
You know how it is, gotta look 'er over, kick the tires and make it your own.

Here are a few pic from our quickie trip taking my Mom to her winter "camp" in Florida. (She's 90 and has an efficiency apartment in the camp.) We had to make it back before Christmas for the Grandkids.
