Have had our 2014 Rockwood A194HW for 3 years now and loving it. Use to tent camp but was getting too hard to get off the ground and try to dress, etc in a tent. Investigated a few smaller trailers and then stumbled upon an a-frame. Sure glad we did

My wife and I retired in 2013 and bought an A124 as our first camper. We have spent over 6 months in it and been everywhere. Love it.

I am a retiree but not a senior citizen not until I am in my 80's will I consider myself a senior citizen.

Now we did see the A-frames at the FROG rally this year and they are nice but I will keep my 5er. And travel and use the 5er for our needs.

I've had all 3 on at the same time when camping in the cooler weather without issue. I would suspect either a propane leak or a faulty regulator - both are reasonable possibilities.

My A122 had a propane leak we discovered on our first trip (April in Colorado). Turned out to be a defective metal casting where the hose from the regulator joined the metal plumbing under the camper. We could smell it outside, but not inside, and it never set off the alarm.

I've also had a regulator go bad and leak on a home gas grill.

Senior A-frame trailer campers

Bob, my wife and I went from a 5th wheel to an A122S. Got tired of driving a "semi" and paying the freight in mpg. We are both in our mid-70's and plan to camp for quite a few years yet (been doing it together since tent days in 1969). We like the simplicity of the A-frame also, so much so that we are buying a new one this afternoon, the A213HW. Rockwood has a new floor plan that contains a built-in cassette potty, preserves the dinette, and has either a permanent king bed or two separate smaller beds on the other end. This high wall edition provides more fridge space and lets us oldsters stand up straight when cooking or doing dishes. We are very happy with this camper. Won't miss having to lift the porta-potty in and out either!

Senior A-frame Campers

We are also senior A-frame campers. We both retired a couple years ago and wanted to start camping again, something we did a lot of when we were younger. After taking a river rafting trip I realized I was done with tents, and we bought our perfect little A-122BH A-frame. We've been out 4 times now and love it. We are such newbies-had never towed anything before-but everything is great and we look forward to meeting many other A-framers and campers as we move into this exciting phase of life known as 'retirement'.

Senior A-frame campers

I'm not retired but my hubby is. We bought a T21QBHW a few months ago. It's our first camper ever. We looked at lots of RVs but liked this Flagstaff A-frame best. We're still learning but we really enjoy it.

Senior A-Frame campers

We have also been camping ever since we married over 50 years ago. We started with an old Baker tent, moved to a pop-up, to another pop-up, to a Shamrock hybrid, to a few travel trailers, and, finally, a 5th Wheel. Now we've downsized to our new A213HW and love it. But we haven't given up on tent camping either. I've seen a lot of comments from folks who don't want to sleep on the ground anymore, but I did a backpacking trip with my sons on Isle Royale three years ago, and remember how nice and soft that 3-inch air mattress was! My wife and I still use our tent on occasion, but we don't sleep on the ground. Some years back, we bought cots with built-in air mattresses. We throw them up in minutes, have a little hand-made end table between them at the head end, with a lantern on it. The porta-potty is placed at the other end of the tent, near the door. Yes, takes a little longer than our A-frame, but sometimes the tent is the only way to go. Or, maybe we just want to revisit our "roots" now and then.

We tent camped for years but sold all of our stuff 10 years ago, then retired in 2012 and decided to go camping again and went out and bought a tent. That lasted 1 year and we are now the proud owners of aT12rb a couple of weeks ago and can't wait to get it on the road.
