I found some 'command strip' small plastic clothes pins. I am using them to hang some decor. Easy to put up and take down. I have also decided that I am going to take down the long upholstery strips that are attached with sticky Velcro that doesn't stick and make something much more fun to hang there and hide the joint/hinge for the roof, probably paint fabric like this photo but include an A-frame! One for each side

I love using the Cuisinart Oven Central (its a six in one appliance) when I know I will have electrical power. It's an amazing versatile appliance that takes up little room and performs like a champ. It comes with several accessory pans. It fries, bakes, grills, toasts, sautes and warms various foods.

Many many A-Framers have purchased this appliance since I shared in other groups and some have even purchased a second one for their home.

Beside the coffeemaker or tea kettle, in my opinion, this appliance is a "must have" for any A-Frame or pop up owner where space is limited.

Adding the air pot for coffee was a grand idea for my camper needs! It keeps coffee hot for a good 8 hrs. I brew a fee pots and pour it in. Set it outside for easy access by ourselves and any visitors who might stop by.

Looks nifty. Went to Amazon, and read some reviews. Several reported the right knob "melting" and falling off. This was from a few years ago. Have you experienced any issues with this?

Just found this on Amazon, gets a LOT of good reviews, and one of the "questions" asked is answered by an A-Frame owner who says it works perfectly:

Asbrand - I have had no problem with the control knob melting. I've had the little oven for a couple years.

As for the BAL leveler, it's an awesome purchase for the A-Frame owner. Makes solo leveling a breeze.

The awning looks nifty. But, when you can buy nearly 4 of the freestanding popup shades for the same price? Yeah...not so much.

Nice little awning to take sun off the big window and afford a bit of rain protection. I do agree however that it is more than a bit overpriced at $290. Half that would be much more of a draw. In their defense, I do believe that they can custom match colors to your unit so there is that. I know that this company only makes very high quality items as well. It also appears to be a very easy install and set up for 1 person.

I used the BAL Leveler on our Casita and liked it so much that when we got a Micro Lite 21DS I bought two for the dual axles, they worked ok, but when we replaced that with the Micro Lite 25KS the extra weight was too much strain on the cordless drill I used to raise the levelers,...... but it is a great product ........

How many inches will a BAL Leveler raise one side of a trailer?

Screw length allows 5-6 inches of vertical lift

I've used one since I got my first popup. It is the easiest way I know of to level a camper if you use a power drill. I've never run into a situation where it would not raise the low side tire enough to lever the camper. If you don't use a drill it is a bit of effort but gets done quickly.

Battery Disconnect Switch!!!!

Jack Wheel if you are storing in a garage so you can move it around

Fun lights!
---I got mine at Ikea, put velcro at the peak and and the bottom of both sides. I stick it before raising the roof. You can also fish it through the handles on the roof if needed.

Costco has some flat LED stick on type, but I didn't investigate yet if they would work outside and be able to stay permanently. Not sure they'd clear everything when it closes. Maybe around the base of the trailer though....might be fun.

We also reinforced the ledge the dinette sits on when using it for a bed as it fell though on us. My husband put a strip of wood down to the floor to gain full support. I think I posted the pics in another post, but will try to get them to my album.

Happy Camping!

We replaced our mattress with a Casper Queen. It weighs in around 83 pounds and I'd guess the factory mattress weighed around 20 pounds. After 5 nights it's been worth every pound.

The expandable poles are from Amazon and 4 foot shelves fit across thrm perfect. We put supports from a closet rod on the ends so the rods don't slip down.
