RE: Nice to have a tc for a short trip.

I have been thinking lately how nice it would be to have a 40' unit when I am parked some place for a month or more (if I ever get to do that), but a Tcer is so nice to just take anyplace and no forethought to routes or clearance issues and makes sort trips so worthwhile.

RE: BC trip report

I believe I have parked in that very camping spot in Nanaimo. Love the slug pics. Told my wife that I was bringing a couple slugs home for her as pets, she declined. :h

RE: BC trip report

I appreciate your effort. There is a link on your blog; "Paterson Photography". It takes the reader to "Paterson Photography Teaching, courses, workshops, printing, photography and more". Your name; "Mike Paterson" is a link to "New Product – Gloss Laminate Posted on March 18, 2015 by Mike NEW Product!! I love getting new things in and this one is really cool." and more." In my opinion, your blog is a direct violation of; ""You may not use the Open Roads Forum to either advertise or promote commercial endeavors. This includes direct posts, member name, URLS in your profile or signature, as well as, active links to other sites on the Internet." Sorry tried to please but only so much that I can do on the road, take it down then I really do not care!!!!

RE: BC trip report

Honestly if you want to remove it do so. I just thought that I would share and this was the fastest way, never thought that it would be an issue. Seeing that we had to host our images someplace else this saved so much time in uploading images to different sites and copying links and making sure that sizes were correct, etc, etc. I was PM'ed yesterday asking why I would not post this on the Alaska/ Canada forum as this would be beneficial there. Never thought of that so I did. It was pulled down, and people wonder why there is nobody posting there. At least if I get removed then there is more space to discuss GMC over Ford or Gas over Diesel or what weight is the right weight to carry, those are the important things!

RE: BC trip report

This is from Northwest Treck. Plenty of photo ops there. Nice, now I want to go. Another thing to add to my list.

RE: BC trip report

Thanks for the trip report. Wish we could have shown you some better weather today but apparently I have no control over that and the next few days don't look much better. We'll check the forecast Tuesday and go wherever the sun is shining. Yah was a little wet and cool. Tuesday is looking good, I was thinking of leaving Tuesday but may have to stay an extra day to see what the Island sun looks like :h We stayed in HOPE years ago. Nice little camp ground right on the river. Have you ever made it to the NW Treck wildlife preserve south of Tacoma? There are some good wolf picture opportunities there. There is also the wild animal park over by Port Angeles but I've never made it inside so I can't comment about it. Nice you got your trip in and I enjoyed your pictures. Take care, Sounds like the same RV park in Hope. Have not been south to shoot as I keep finding so much to shoot around Alberta and BC. I am going to have to come back here to get to some places that I just don't have the time to get to this trip. So much to shot sooo little time :B

BC trip report

Instead of trying to type things out a couple times I am doing this trip report on my blog and will let you know here when I update it. Saves me retyping for my site and a couple others. Trip is a couple days exploring BC and mainly Vancouver Island. I cannot head home till Friday April 17th as I have to help my daughter move home from university so I need some way to pass a few days before I go back to Kamloops to load up her things :B Trip Report

RE: Vancouver Island with the TCer

Well I am on the Island. A few things to note: 1) GPS sucks 2) Vancouver road signs are horrible 3) Ferry workers are GREAT 4) GPS sucks 1 & 2) On my way from Hope to Tsawwassen I was forced to rely on road signs and my GPS to get me to the ferry terminal and what a mess. I knew better as I got into Hope late the night before from Kamloops and never got a Internet password from the campground and so never had a chance to check the route but I thought how hard can it be? HARD!!! Lots of new roads that are not on my GPS and the signs are not easy to follow. LOVE the sign as you are driving to the ferry dock "DO NOT RELY ON GPS, OBEY POSTED SIGNS" You got that right....... splash!!!! 3) I get to the ferry terminal late for the ferry and I was prepared to wait for the next one and as I pulled up to the ticket booth the lady says "How long are you?" Just as I reached for the sheet I have for the sizes of the rig she goes "You are under 20', here you go". I am 22' but she would not hear of it as I looked smaller. Into the line up I get out to shut off the propane and get waved on board, so much for waiting for the next ferry. Shut off propane on board and away we went - Thanks BC ferry workers I appreciated it, very professional and helpful!! 4) Get to the island and with construction and what not GPS again lets me down. As I am checking in at the campsite the host tells me "Yah GPS really sucks for Vancouver", the understatement of the day! At least I am at a campsite for the night :B

RE: Questions for Northern Lite owners

Thanks for confirming my suspicions, these campers are hard to come by around here it seems, but will just have to be patient! If you can head across the border, with the price of our dollar now it is a big benefit to you to shop here.

RE: Northern Lite 8'11" Q Classic Special Edition

811's are so light that you will not even know it is there. Have fun and enjoy, I am currently in my 96 in southern BC and loving it :B

RE: Questions for Northern Lite owners

I am a HUGE fan of NL's but I would stay away from this one unless you are planning to do what could be a lot of work (see below). Too many problems that could each be a real pain to fix and repair the unseen issues. That being said if they are selling for under $5000 it could be a good fixer upper if all the appliances and shell are in good shape and you want to do the work.

RE: LED interior lighting for older TC

I did mine a while ago from these guys http://www.jirahled.com/ Love the power savings and the light, works on voltages from 11.9 to 14 with no problems. The other day I was at an RV show and saw some new LED fixtures, WOW were they ever bright. Checked into them and they were $84 each, went to a local supplier and found a similar fixture for $24, the only issue is that it is a double and you can only have it on or off both sides not one or both. I replaced the main light in the middle of the camper and is it ever nice, lights up everything. I then moved the old double to above the table that previously had only a single. I would like to replace the covers as the old ones are a little yellow and I think I may get more light doing that. May try that today as suppose to hit the road tomorrow.

RE: Old versus New

Reading the posts here, mine included, we seem to be the type of people that would not make RV salespeople very happy. There must be something wrong with us that we are not going out and getting the low $200 per month payment for 20 years on the new campers and then the $175 bi weekly on a new truck. So much for our part in improving the economy :B

RE: Old versus New

This is something that I have been debating for a while and I am still sticking with my 1992 Northern Lite. I could sell it for around $9000 but to go new or a year old I am looking at $35,000 plus. Figure that for that kind of money I can buy a lot of gas and camp sites. Plus with older camper I am not worried about every little thing.

RE: Truck Camper Explosion in Portand

You guys all have the story wrong! The explosion was caused by an unvented battery that ignited a unvented catalytic heater and caused the cheap Chinese LED lights to explode. I have read about this thousands of time and now we have picture proof. It has to be so.......... :h I bet the damage was worse than expected due to the TC being overweight for the truck. I never thought of that, call the weight police!!!
