We're planning a 6-8 week trip starting sometime in August. I'm looking for any resources that would help with information on where to stay. We have a 43 ft DP.

I'm familiar with Norm and Linda Payne/See Ya Down The Road, and we have looked at their trip log.

Any other resources any of you could recommend?

Bob & Katie: Hi from Tucson. Read your post and like you, have been waiting for some responses since we too are very interested in touring Nova Scotia AND Newfoundland with our rig. We've visited Nova Scotia prior to retiring and going fulltime, and VERY MUCH enjoyed that Province, but we were not in a motorhome then.
Hope someone responds. We'd like to spend a big chunk of either this summer or next in Newfoundland. Hope someone drops a line or two. OH, by the way....all we know is it's TOO COLD here in Arizona. It's our first time trying out AZ for winter and for sure...it'll be back to good ol WARM Florida again next winter!!!! Brrrrrrrrr. Steve & Lynette

I keep thinking about a Trans-Labrador Highway trip. With the price of fuel might as well do the BIG circle trip including NS.

Did part of the James Bay Highway in 2001.

We did a 2 week trip to Nova Scotia in the summer of 2006. It was a great time. My only resource to plan the trip was the 2006 Doers' and Dreamers' Guide from the Nova Scotia Dept of Tourism. It is free, order it on line www.novascotia.com or call 1-800-565-0000. On the way up we spent several days exploring Fundy National Park in New Brunswick. The 40 ft tidal change is impressive. The park can accommodate your motorhome just make reservations. We drove from Fundy to Cape Breton Highlands National Park and stayed at Cheticamp Campground in the park. Large sites full hookup very clean. We used this as a base camp and explored the Cape Breton Highlands and Cabot Trail from here. We did a lot of whale watching from the Cabot Trail. They say the Cabot Trail is the most scenic drive in North America and I would agree. We did not have the time to get up into Newfoundland. Next time we go back we plan on exploring the Bras d' Or Lake area and Halifax. You are going to have a great time.

Thanks to all for the responses so far. We have also identified a couple of sites with info. We're going to be meeting with some people who are from the area, and hope to learn more then.

Have not been their in a MH, but did spend 3 wks in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland traveling by motorcycle. It ranks as one of the best places I have ever been. And I have traveled the entire US and Canada. I have never encountered friendlier people anywhere. The seafood is great. I cant wait to go back by MH when retired in a few years. You will love every minute of that trip. Enjoy

If you have any specific question about some area specific or attractions, drop the questions here or in the Canada Forum.

Or drop me a PM and I can try to find answers for you.

I live near Halifax and have been checking out all the local campgrounds since we moved here. Have done a bit of PEI and NB touristing since as well.
