New A framers!

Hi,
We just wanted to introduce ourselves. We just picked up our forest river rockwood a128s on Thursday and are "camping" in the driveway right now! Brand new trailer owners...long time tent campers and backpackers, so this trailer thing is a real luxury for us. We drove around today to practice using the brakes and backing up. Thanks to all the forum folks for your posts. We learned A LOT before making the big purchase.

Happy camping!
Heather & Alex

Hello,

Glad to see that there's an A-frame unit in the neighborhood here in SoCal. These units tends to grab my attention - like the concept a lot.

Feel free to post some pics because we really love pics.

Happy travels!

Thanks for the welcome!! We just had to try it out in the driveway! We did spend the weekend cleaning out the garage... Lots of work but well worth saving the storage fees. Looking forward to our first real escape next weekend!!

Check out the Tent Campers, A Frames and Pop Ups Forum look under the Tent Campers/Truck Campers Section on the main Forum page. Lots of other A Framers there.

It is one of the best upgrades from tenting IMHO. We did the same thing last year, tenters for 25 years. Soooooooooo quick and convenient.

Congrats on the new camper! We have done 4 nights already in our new A-frame and are ready for many more this year.
