1994 Covington Firan 25'

Any help out there with answers regarding any issues that I might encounter with this motorhome? This is my first and don't know much. The vehicle seems to be in good condition and I'm attempting to drive it from Montreal to Vancouver Island. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Oh by the way, I will be towing a car transport trailer with a Yaris en tow.

That's a long trip for your first outing!

I bought our present rig in Cornwall, 100 km from Montreal, and drove it home to Kamloops.

I would suggest that you buy a tool kit, volt/ohm/amp meter and maybe some other repair materials from Canadian Tire. That's what I did. Returned when I got home because I didn't need them.

Take the Southern Trans Canada Hwy. because it's more populated in case you need parts or ?

Have a good trip.

Happy Glamping.

If you are in Seattle, why are you heading across Canada?

There's more populated areas and cheaper gas in the states.

Also shorter going South of the Great Lakes.

I’m in Montréal and trying to get back to Seattle, where I have work, but I can’t get back to Canada once I cross the border so I want to be close to Seattle once the borders are open. Yes, I’m aware of your logic but I’m having to live with these restrictions imposed by this pandemic. But thanx any way.
