We bought an Aliner used and spent 120+ nights in it. The Aliner and Chalets are much lighter than the FRs, 1250 vs 1900lbs. If your TV is marginal this might be an issue. Aliner and Chalet had pretty much priced themselves out of the market even before FR began producing their look-a-likes (the patents on the Aliner/Chalets ran out a few years ago). Chalet RV was purchased in 2012. Dealers in my area have stopped carrying Aliners.

Look at a Trailmanor and live in hard sided popular luxury.

We had a trailmanor for years when the kids were home. They are a great camper but now we don't need a camper that big anymore. They are way over priced like everything else these days.

We also had a Trailmanor and loved it. Great unit and can be pulled with a mini van when properly set up. They have some new smaller models and used ones are generally reasonably priced and most have a full bath a kitchen.

Been there and thought about all that,

and ended up with an A122.

No regrets.

Remember, the A frames are a "niche market", and therefore everything about them, including availability and sales marketing, is unique.

We love our A124

We bought an A124 A-frame a year ago and have spent about 4 of the last 12 months living in it. It is 14 feet long plus 3 feet for the trailer and so is light, has no sway, and is a dream to tow. It also have everything we need in it with no extra space that we don't need. I tow it with a 4-cylinder Subaru (all wheel drive is important) and have never had a problem. After a year I have had to replace a light switch for the 12 volt ceiling light and the entry step I bent backing up over a particularly large rock. See burroughsbucketlist.wordpress.com for our our adventures.

We have a Forest River A-frame purchased new in 2012. In 2013, we drove nearly 10,000 miles on an Alaska journey with 1000 miles of gravel roads. The only problem we had was when I pulled loose a brake wire which was hanging low when we boarded the Yukon River ferry. I must have missed it on the morning check. Quick fix, electrical tape and ready to go. We probably have around 16,000+ miles on it. We will be getting new tires before next summer.
