Hello Canadian full timers!

Is it possible to live full time in a class A close to the city in or near Vancouver? Are there campgrounds close to downtown (as close as possible) that allow winter stays?

The closest one that I can think of as a possibility is this one in Burnaby (suburb of Vancouver). It is probably about 8-10 miles from the Downtown but there is Skytrain (light rail) quite close by to get downtown if you aren't driving. It is quick and direct.

Burnaby Cariboo RV Park an Campground

This is another in North/West Vancouver. which is maybe closer to downtown as the crow flies but you have to cross Lions Gate bridge which can be slow at heavy traffic periods or take the SeaBus from North Vancouver, neither are very direct.

West Vancouver RV Park & Camping Sites | Capilano River RV Park

I don't know if either do long term rates but you can certainly contact them to ask. They are likely VERY expensive if they do. If neither of those work then I know that there are some RV Parks that definitely do longer term in the Fraser Valley but at that point you are 30 miles from downtown with very iffy transit service and a toll bridge if you driving. You can search for RV parks in either Langley or Surrey for some of these.

PS. Here is a link to most parks in the general area

This was, by far and away the most helpful reply I've received to date! Thank you so much for taking the time to send all that. I will start investigating tomorrow a.m. and will keep you all posted with what I find.
Thanks again!

Capilano RV Park

I lived at Capilano for two years while working in Vancouver and loved it. They have a tendency to discourage anyone from long time parking but I found that when I went in personally and spoke with them they were more amendable about it. It was a perfect place to live and be right in the middle of everything.

There are a few around White Rock.
The Fort Langley park started winter stays.

Both these areas offer heavy commute traffic if you
are working in Vancouver.

There is one on the Canadian side of the boarder at the Truck crossing called Pacific Boarder RV park. I have never stayed there in winter, but they have a nice indoor pool and hot tub. Try and not get too close to the back as the trucks crossing the boarder tend to make loud noise in the middle of the night. If Fort Langley is open year round now, that would be my #1 choice as you can have campfires there.
Good luck in your search...
