Got an A-Frame Camper. Good Spots?

Unread postby alittle121 on Wed Dec 05, 2012 12:03 pm

Hey RVers!

I just bought my very first RV! :) I know it's just an A-Frame pop up camper, but I'm proud of it!

I've never done the RV thing, but have always been an outdoorsman and love to camp.

Recently I relocated from Calgary for a job offer just North of Toronto. Currently I live in Kettleby, which is a small town just North of the City.

I would like to try and do an end of fall/early winter trip or maybe do some ice fishing a bit later on in the season which I have never tried before.

Basically I'm asking for any information that could be helpful for destinations :)

Ice Fishing
Camping (Preferably near water)
I am also a big fan of renting cabins on lots. I have had a lot of good experience (But I want to use my darn camper lol)

Thanks in advance for any help!

Aaron :D

First of all welcome to the form.
It doesn't matter what kind RV you have whether it's a A-frame a fifth wheel. Our motorhome just enjoy yourself and be safe :lol:

Welcome!
I echo Frank's statement, doesn't matter what type of RV/trailer, just get out there and enjoy!

Camping this time of the year in Ontario is going to be cold, but still can be a lot of fun. Certainly will be quieter wherever you end up camping. Bring extra blankets!!

Can anyone tell me how to prevent mice in my A-Frame? I was doing a winter inspection last night and found droppings and chewed up cardboard and other things in the cabinetry. I took a look at the undercarriage and it looks to have some damage as well. This is my baby and I just bought it! A friend told me about http://www.mouse-free.com/store/. Has anyone tried this company? Someone Help!!

Bounce dryer sheets are a great way to keep them away. Apparently the mice don't like to smell of the Bounce sheet.
Put them all over the inside of your trailer.

Sorry to hear about the damage. :(

I agree about the bounce sheets being a mouse repellent.

I've also heard that mint on rv tires will deter mice from using that route into the camper.

We are using bounce sheets this year along with poison.

We have found that keeping the trailer where there is some kind of activity ( vehicles in and out of the driveway etc ) is the best. Last year we parked the trailer behind the shop, and we noticed droppings inside, no damage, but this year it's beside the driveway. We haven't noticed anything yet.
