Jayco sport hard sided A frame

Hi,
Just checking to see if anyone has been camping in the Jayco Sport hard sided pop up camper. We just picked up our A frame and will be taking it out on our first camping trip. Just trying to get back any feed back on your experiences with the unit.
Thanks

I look forward to reading your experiences once you've been out with it. While I think the solid concept is neat, I was concerned about lack of storage space and a lack of air movement inside the unit. Did you purchase your's at Ricks RV?

Hard side pop up

Hi,
We purchased the jayco hard sided at ricks rv. Great service department there too. We like the easy set up and take down, no canvas, but all the comforts ie ac, heat, hot water, micro, three way fridge, outside shower. No potty but we picked up a portable for night time or bad weather. There is storage below, accessible outside or from the inside too. Small, but enough for my wife and me. Can sleep a couple of grandkids if we bring them on short trips. There is an optional electric vent on the roof, and the side window and door have screen to get air flowing. We can also store it in our garage for the winter. It's a step up from our tent camping days.
Our you working or retired FD? I have friends that worked at Schaumburg FD.
Will keep you posted when we take her out for the first overnight trip.
Jeff

We purchased our 1007 UD from Rick's RV last November, looking forward to our first trip out in a couple of months. I am a retired firefighter/paramedic, I retired nearly six years ago following a thirty year career with the Lombard Fire Department. Thanks for the info on your camper, I'll be watching for more once you've enjoyed your first trip out with it. Enjoy!

We got our A frame last summer and love it! Easy to tow and park and seems to generate lots of interest in the parks. Still need to get a porta potty and enclosure for for nite trips. Added a battery gauge to keep tabs on the battery and added a solar charger. Also changed all the interior bulbs and porch light to leds.

The first time we viewed an A-frame, it certainly grabbed our attention as well. The concept is terrific and I do look forward to learning more about how they are working out for their owners.

Storage can be an issue we are learning to take less as we go. We don,t have the screen room we use an EZup instead.DW thinks we should get the room but I am unsure after reading some of the comments on other forums .

This is our first experience camping with a popup, so we will be learning through trial and error. We have yet to begin moving in to the camper yet because weather isn't cooperating, but we have been planning what we want to bring and what will not make the trips.
