Well, she said that she was shopping and did make just the one post. Could be she decided an Aframe might not have enough storage and was too small for herself, a bike and 2 labs too. Wonder if she bought a different Forest River product?

Eh well, it gave us 3 pages of posts full of great storage ideas and opinions from some very helpful folks.

Sorry I disappeared

I stopped getting notifications about posts so I didn't know folks were posting. No -- I didn't give up. I'm picking up my A128S Monday so I will probably be badgering all of you with more questions soon.

Still not certain what to do about gray water, but think I will go with an economical solution and try it for a while and see what I think.

I plan to only have the A128S home for a week or two and then heading out for the first camping trip. Taking the dogs to the Outer Banks of North Carolina so they can swim in the ocean and I can check out lighthouses. I can't wait.

Right now my big worry is backing it into my garage when I get home. I haven't backed a trailer for years and don't want to do any damage. Wish me luck.

Thanks for all the responses!

My prefered solution has the benefit of being both economical and easy.

7 gallon Aqua-tainers from Walmart

Those are great too. I know of some people that use them for fresh water in conjunction with a water transfer pump. You can also get a 4 gallon Aqua-tainer and use it to offload some of the water.

I too purchased the screen room that attaches to my flagstaff as mentioned earlier in this thread...since my camper is still on the assembly line (I'm going a little crazy waiting for it!) I haven't seen the actual screen room. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if it comes with privacy panels...or if it is simply a screen room...also...since it doesn't have a rain fly...I am concerned that it will leak a little in the rain. Anybody help me on how well they keep out the rain? And...if they don't have wall panels to close off the screen windows, has anyone added their own privacy panels to their screen room?

Here is the inside of the screen room. Where the little ties are hanging down is where the panels are. I have not been with it in a big down pour so I can not speak to that.
