Canada can, and did, set their own rules for their country. Which isolates Alaska from the contiguous 48. It is a different country folks.

I have no need or desire to travel to or through Canada.

We purchased a RV earlier this year. As Alaska residents and recently retired, our intention was to experiment with the alternative to winter darkness. Traveling to more southern latitudes as "snowbirds" was the original intent.. Almost diabolically, our RV purchase, in February 2020, proved to be a classic case of poor timing, Not only because it coincided with what eventually developed into the pandemic, but unwittingly, we had arranged to accept delivery of the vehicle in the State of Oregon. There the restrictions were both immediate and more severely convoluted than other locations.

Because of the sustained unrest and incivility permeating the Lower 48 States, we are no longer inclined to travel there and instead will return the RV to Alaska. Plenty to do here. If the restrictions are removed next spring and travelers are welcome to travel leisurely thru Canada, we will be driving north instead of south.

Meanwhile, we will be monitoring restrictions and looking for an end to the implementations. We would appreciate others contributing their experiences or plans. Making sense of RV travel through the disruptive atmosphere that currently prevails would be easier with others providing anecdotal information on their experience.

even if you can drive thru BC and Alberta to get south,i wouldnt recommend it with all the salt that is put on the highways that will get in every nook and crany of your RV .and you should have good winter tires too. cheaper to leave your rig in Alaska and fly down and rent for this winter.

If you're truly rethinking the RV idea, your timing might not have been poor. You probably got in before the pandemic-driven seller's market, and you might be surprised how much you could get right now selling your RV.
