I'm planing a trip to New Brunswick this summer (last week of July and or first week of August).
Is there such a thing as an RV travel agent? Planning the camp stops and things to visit is more complicated then I thought.
Any suggestions on some reasonably affordable places to stay and things to visit? We are coming from Ottawa.
I have a travel trailer and we are a family of 4, Me, DW, and two kids 7 and 3.
Where ever I Camp
As you have not given the time frame and your interest it is difficult to give you advice BUT I will tell how I plan my RV trips.
A.I mark on a map the places I want to visit.
B.Combine the marks with scenic routes.
C.Look for C.G/Provincial Parks along the route.
D.Make a list of "THINGS TO DO" for each stop.
E.I post my route on the forum and ask for "remarks".
Here are some useful links :

If you read my PM I would like to add that our trip began in Perth Ontario, so the early pictures will be of interest too as we drove through Quebec on our way to New Brunswick.

1st tip. Searching. Both Google and Yahoo have domain specific search engines. Domain for Canada is ".ca". So, https://www.google.ca.
Then put in the province you want and 'tourism'.
2. Call the provincial tourism office to ask for your visitors guide 2012. Why? To give you a chance to ask for your interests. They will send you additional pamphlets on those interests.
Let's take hiking. My preferences: Campobello Island and Grand Manan Island, Fundy National Park.
Local food interests: Saint John City Market.
campgrounds for the whole family. Mactaquac Provincial Park, near Fredericton. (in fact NB PPs are nice, have trees, or you're not stuck thinking you're in a parking lot)
Historical New Brunswick: Hartland Covered Bridge, Kings Landing, Acadian Historical Village (living history)
Water: Bay of Fundy, of course.
That should keep you busy for a couple of weeks.
& I, I took the road less travelled by.
