youtubeSales of all types of RVs have been booming over the past 18 months. One type of RV that has become extra popular is the Class B Motorhome.

Class B motorhomes are built on a commercial van chassis and are typically contained within the cargo space. Popular chassis include the Mercedes Sprinter chassis, the Ford Transit chassis and the Dodge Ram ProMaster chassis.

Like many other people, the last year-and-a-half or so has been a turmoil. Much of that time, we were unable to travel by RV, and we haven’t been able to RV into the USA since March 2020. That has been a significant blow to my family, as our favorite camping haunts are south of the Canadian border. Last summer we were able to travel to a wedding in Whitehorse, Yukon Territories. While the Yukon is definitely not in the Pacific Northwest (well it IS in the Pacific Northwest of Canada), I highly recommend a trip along the Alaska Highway.

A few months ago, I wrote an article speculating when the US/Canadian land border might open again to non-essential travel. I’m not about to buy any lottery tickets anytime soon because I really messed up that prediction!

Since the borders were unilaterally closed about 18 months ago, citizens on both sides have been led to believe the USA and Canadian borders would re-open at the same time. With the Covid-19 cases exploding in the USA throughout the Pandemic, it was a wise decision to isolate the two nations. In fact, some people are unaware that Canadians have been able to travel by air to US destinations, and that only the land borders have been closed.

Author’s Note: This post is not meant to disparage anyone on how or where they camp, but to inspire everyone to reject mediocrity and make each and every RV outing the best it can be. 

youtubeWhat’s the view out your window? Is it a reflection of your lifestyle and where you truly want to be in your RV or is it a compromise chosen out of convenience and lack of perceived options?

youtubeWith the wave of new RV owners, it is harder than ever to obtain a campsite with an electrical hookup these days. This has lead many first time RV owners to purchase a generator. However, many don’t fully understand what size (output) or type of generator they need. More importantly, when and how long to operate a generator. This lack of understanding leads to poor generator etiquette in the campground. The results are upsetting campers in neighboring campsites and causing headaches for the campground host who has to deal with the conflicts.
