Good Morning
We need the camper for the areas we get into, larger RV s won't go. In 1900 I bought a new truck to pull a 5th wheel, to the RV lot and came home with a new Class C. We really enjoyed it but back to the camper.
Off to Spokane for 5 days, takes 5 hr to drive there, not taking the camper this time. Try do some X-Mas shopping.

We keep the camper and truck in a large heated garage, what part of B.C. are U planning to visit next summer ?
I love Monument Valley and was there a few years ago. We hope to travel through there this spring. Utah looks amazing in pictures so is on my bucket list for that trip too.

Lived in Victoria too many years ago.

We are planning to visit the Okanagan, Caribou, maybe Kootenays and all the places that are hard to spell. LOL. We don't really plan where we are going just head out in a general direction and enjoy what happens.

Perfect Camper

It does not exist. Or should say it exists until you see a unit with that wow is that ever nice reaction, or I wish we had that on ours. I have as a contractor, built myself 17 homes over the years and am yet to have what I want,

BC has a lot of great places to enjoy, I would like to go back to the Island for awhile. We were always in a hurry to leave the Island. Now being retired we have the time.

Let's see, we are on RV number 11 and while getting closer, it is not the perfect one. Not sure if you can find the perfect RV.

It has taken us 4 yrs to get our TC. It is a 2003 Lance 1161 that we have owned for 8 days now. Looking forward to putting it into use. I don't know if there is a perfect RV or TC, but if you find one that you like and possibly will work for you. Go for it.

Seems like some missed my post #7..

I agree there is no "perfect camper" but I found what I think will be great. I bought a 2007 Arctic Fox 990 that was owned by a fussy perfectionist. It was kept in a garage and used very little. Picking it up this week and then heading for the sunny south after Christmas for 3 or 4 months. I can hardly wait.
