Assuming that the w/s protective mat is for the toad? Any protection needed for the grill/hood of the toad?

Also, has anyone driven the Alcan north in their MH and returned on the ferry to Seattle?

Thanks - Pete

We looked into coming back via the marine hwy on a ferry. They are NOT dog friendly, I mean your dogs are never allowed out of the mh except when in port. We have large dogs that would need exercising at least 3 or 4 times per day, so this was a deal breaker. Also they wouldn't let us humans stay in or mh, They required we pay extra for living space on the ferry. [moderator edit]

Very expensive. An interesting alternative is to park the RV someplace like Haines (cut a deal with the CGs there for parking) and buy a round trip ferry pass for a week or so. One way disembark at all the cities you desire and overnight at each one, the other way add the ferry accommodation and non-stop return. Far cheaper and you'll get a true "locals" experience at the ports-of-call AND the full maritime experience. Each city is easily tourable on foot or local taxi and B&B's abound.

That's for your safety. If there is an emergency they can not possibly search and evacuate every vehicle. They have the procedures and warning alarms for the cabins, not the vehicles.

This is not totally accurate. While I agree that the ferry could be considered to be not dog friendly, they did allow access to the car deck during long trips between ferry terminals. We took the ferry from Haines to Prince Rupert with 3-4 day stopovers at several towns. The one trip between Sitka and Ketchikan took about 11 hours and we were permitted to go down to the coach and take the dog out for a walk around open areas on the car deck for about 15 minutes. We also could (and did) take the dog off the boat at the stops at Petersburg and Wrangell so he could relieve himself.

This sounds pretty easy and may be just the thing for the front windshield. I am looking at havinf Diamond Shield installed in the front of the Envoy.
