Something cool you bought for the Aframe?

In between camping trips.. I like to shop on Amazon.. seems I always look for camping and/or camper accessories. Is there something kinda cool that you bought for your aframe? Tell us about it.. Pictures would be great too.

Like you, I am always looking for ideas. We like to go scrounging at thrift stores and yard sales and have found some great camping gear and accessories. Our three drawer plastic storage bin was 50 cents. I sew and have made theme pillow cases...my DH's is guitar fabric. I have also made hand painted pot holders, aprons, and 'prayer' flags to hang outside. Our goal is not to get into all of the amazing but expensive toys you can find at the big outdoor stores, but it is very tempting!

Thanks! That is actually a pot-holder, and I have a matching apron. I paint the fabric then make the item. The pillow case is purchased fabric. It is in the a-frame and I will take a photo to post when we go camping next.

The best thing we bought for the A-frame so far was mattress toppers for both the rear bed and the dinette. A comfortable sleep is the reason for the camper in the first place.

I agree on the toppers. . I did the same thing. The big mattress in the a122s isn't bad.. but the topper makes it extra comfortable.

Indirect lighting

We bought 2 15 foot lengths of LED strip lighting with an RF remote off Amazon and taped them to the top of the triangular walls for indirect lighting. Can't take credit for the idea, though. Stole it from another A-framer we met on one of our first excursions. Make sure you order white (we went with warm white which we think looks good with the brown decor) unless you want it to look like Christmas all year long. We wired the system into the switch for the night light and turn the lights down to lowest setting at night. Tip: Clean top of walls with alcohol before applying strips. RF remote works better because you don't have to point the remote directly at the unit.
