Motorhome size in Nova Scotia and NB

We are thinking of traveling to Nova Scotia and New Brunswick this Summer. Some web sites I have seen state that both provinces in Canada limit the MH length to 41 feet. Is this information still correct and is it applicable to visitors from the US?

Your rig is for sure allowed ...no restrictions for 43 ft. Enjoy the great scenery and friendly people. We are there every August.

Thanks all for the responses. Someone sent me this link which appears to be very helpful and you may find useful.

I see where some of the confusion may have been with the regs I looked at. It looks like a MH over 12.5 meters (approx. 41 feet) requires a tag axle.

The only place where over 40' is a concern is the Atlantic ferry system, there is a price increase because the length jump is from <60' including towed, to 70', which includes semi's. And they do actually measure all RV's prior to loading.
