there's no FR "lifetime" warranty. the trailer comes with a 1 year factory warranty. for an extra $100-$150, you can add a 2nd year to that.

Lol... Are you saying we got scammed, call FR and find out yourself. Too bad you did not know about it, btw do you have an A-Frame if not then you may be right or the offer has expired.

bikendan - I am reading my Additional Protection Plan thru FR for folding camping trailers - it states by purchasing the 2nd year warranty it provides lifetime parts & labor protection against manufacturing defects attributable to FR Inc, w/parts, freight for first 3 yrs. It extends beyond the standard warranty against manufacturer defects.

One thing you might want to think about compared to the 128s model is maybe the 127TH. I've found that storage is a premium, and the toy-hauler rack is a great way to carry stuff, and you can duplicate the enclosed storage of the "S" with a pickup truck tool box.

All this assumes you have tow-vehicle that works.

Just something to think about.

We just bought the A122BH, BH is a bike hauler, which has multiple storage options. We love ours, going out again next weekend to camp,bike and paddle board.

Good point. the only problem is i don't have 22' to store it. But i do like that the more storage part of it. My TV is a Toyota FJ Crusier.

You only have 500 lbs tongue weight to play with your TV according to Edmunds. The A128S with a bike rack, carrying 2 heavy bikes and 2 full propane tanks plus full hot water tank, viola close to 500 lbs already. I had to take out my propane tanks during my trips and store them inside before the tire axle, my limit is 350 lbs. With the 127TH, it could carry 600 pounds of stuff but your TV will be challenged to take advantage of that.

How did your shopping deal go? What was the price range did they offer for a A128S?

Are you dealing for a 2014 A128S? Did they tell you what major changes were done compared to the older model?

it's a 2013. no mention of the 2014. I will bring it up. is it safe to assume that the 2013s have been sitting on the lot for a year?
