Bugs aren't really a problem for the most part at anytime unless you in the woods or by a swamp or marsh. We don't have some of the issues that some places do with bugs to drive you mad. Mosquito's may come out at dusk but by late August, you probably won't even need bug repellant.

When travelling in the mountains it is a good idea to bring some warmer clothes as the evenings can be very cool.

We are planning a trip from Tennessee to Vancouver, I want to spend a little time on VanCouver Island, my concern is the ferry to the island. I found what I think is the best place to cross Vancouver (Tsawwassen Terminal) - Victoria (Swartz Bay Terminal). If I calculated it correctly the cost is about 328$, 43' motorhome towing a car, total length is about 63'. Can some of your savvy travelers give me a little info, we are leaving in Aug, going up through Jasper and Banff cross over the mountains to VanCouver then down through Washington. One other thing unhooking the car will save me about 4-5 feet, is that an option to save a little.

I think you're low by a few dollars. You may not have included the fares for the people in the RV, but I agree that the basic cost is $55.40 plus $6.35 per foot for every foot over 20'. And that, of course is the one way fare.

I am reading the schedule of fares, the first group says passenger $16.90 foot or vehicle, I thought that was for one person in a car. I noticed the second list of of fares, Standard cars, excludes driver, $51.75 so that would be $72.30. The the MH I think would be $55.40 plus 23' @ $6.95 = 146.97 plus 16.90 for a total of 218.35 Car and MH would total $290.65 I think that is right. This is really confusing on the first read, I think we can disconnect and take the two over separated and save the 6$/ft. for the tow bar if that is right.

The good news is that at the moment $1 US = $1.25 CAD!

Wow that is close, did you take tow car loose and cross. I have been trying to find a few good places to stay and there are some nice campgrounds. Would you consider leaving the MH and going over a few days and not pay the 600$ and spend it for hotels. I received an answer from one in Victoria that said they were booked up for the time period we were to be there.

We left car hooked up as it's on a dolly. Not sure but you'll probably pay around $70 one way in a car with two people.
