Post Camping Pic`s of A-Frames

I think it would be cool to see some camping pic`s with your A-Frames.
Your pic`s don`t have to be anything fancy, just a couple at the site .

I just got back from a quiet solo camping trip, at Little Orleans CG W.Md. I had a permanent TT site there for over 17 years, the campground is really nice and the owners are good people.

My kind of camping. Nice looking area.
Looks like you are enjoying the Great Outdoors, in your hammock.

Nice pics everyone. Can't wait for 2012. I plan to buy my 122 in the spring. Figured why buy now, just to store it for 3 months.

Mike G, your leg hanging there looks like the zombies on Walking Dead ate everything but the boot!

D-mo, looks like the tree in pic 2 is about ready to grab your camper.

I have driven through the Little Orleans Campground and it looks very nice but I would be nervous getting the hybrid across that hill between 68 and the campground.

2011 Season

We got in 6 trips totalling 12 days since getting the A126 on Sept. 2nd, 2011. Not bad for a short end of season purchase.

Our campsite at an Illinois Corp of Engineers campground @ Lake Shelbyville:

I wish the A126 came with some cool graphics to dress up the tounge end roof panel.




This is our campsite a few weeks later at Camp Lakewood, Effingham, IL:


You can see Gary wearing his red cap down by the lake fishing behind our campsite:

Jeep4two, How is it pulling the trailer with a Wrangler? I was looking at the Wrangler as a tow vehicle, but the website said it can tow 2,000 pounds. What do you think?

Overall ok. I added a wd hitch to handle the tongue weight. The jeep is under powered without a trailer but it does ok. I have the automatic and will add a trans cooler in the spring. Remember the 4 door models are rated at 3500 lbs and 350 lbs tongue with the same engine and trans, so it's not over loaded if you use the wd hitch setup in my opinion.

Without the wd hitch, it was a little light in the front end.
