A-Frame Pics: Lets help each other through the winter!

Ok, after pushing my winterized A126 into the garage I figured "Hey! We need an A-Frame Actions Shots" thread to help us all get through the winter. I figured seeing some of your favorite shots all in one place would be fun and helpful to those that may be considering an A-Frame as their next camper.

So post away. Bring us your favorite action shots of your camper in your favorite places. Lets keep it to shots that include your camper (inside, or out, being towed or setup for the weekend).

I second this thread! I am actually really really looking hard at an A-Frame for my first camper. The wife and I have grown up camping, myself in tents and her in tents and a couple different trailers. We've decided for the sake of our kids (as well as our backs and sanity on the bad weather days ) to get off the ground and into a hard sided trailer of some sort. So I would love to see some pics of the A-Frames in action .

Cool! I figured thehamguy1 would have tons of scenic pics to share. Hard to choose just a few isn't it?!

Handbuilder, I'll bet you have some nice pics of your setup on dog show weekends to share. Renfaire I just know you'll have some interesting pics of Ye Lord and Lady amongst the Aframe (en)camp(ment).

I'm sure that many here are busy getting ready for Turkey Day. This is a good time for "fence sitters" to be inspired to shop and very possibly get a terrific deal the dealers on a new Aframe.


hehe, enablers aren't we?

These are a few showing the inside as well as the dobermans and whippet when we traveled to Florida Panhandle shortly after purchase 3/1/12. I still haven't perfected the art of finding a place for everything and everything in it's place!! I did take out the table and substituted a set of Coleman adjustable/stackable tables which works out much better- get's the port-a-pot out of the way and gives me more storage on the second bench seat for food stuff/small suitcase.

This is from our first camping trip with the new camper at Black River Falls State Park. Wonderful quiet campsite right on a lazy slow river.

These next two were from a weekend visiting my folks on the Lake Superior North shore by Two Harbors. We set up in the back yard so we had a wonderful view of the lake. We even got a family of deer to come through to check us out and say hi.

Great thread idea! We are lucky that we don't have to winterize, and have a January trip planned! Here's a pic from May of this year- our first trip with our "Pop Tart". The Yosemite pics aren't on my iPad yet, so I will add later. The first is on the Tioga pass, on the "back side" of Yosemite- a 10K ft pass. The second is at June Lake- we weren't ready to go home yet after a week in Yosemite, so we found this campground on the way back home to San Diego. So easy to set up and take down, so an impromptu extra night is not at all intimidating like tent camping can be!
