Welcome Mike, glad to have you on the forum. Good luck on finding the perfect trailer. With 20/20 hindsight you'll probably wished you had gotten a bigger motor.

welcome mike & family

Hello Mike & family. Another canuck here. We currently reside on the west coast (Nanaimo). We moved out here from southern Manitoba last June. Love it here after spending 30yrs on the prairies. This is my fave site to visit. I got alot of info from here when we were looking to purchase our RV. We are FT & loving it. We plan on going to the east coast this summer as my hubby has never been there. I was on Grand Manan island years ago, so have been in both oceans. Do not be afraid to ask questions and do your research. Again welcome & many happy travels. Cheerio, Jeannine & Joe
