RE: To those that ask about Duffey Lake Road.....

What a mess, glad no one was injured. I guess we should now be looking out for a sale of 'slightly damaged' trailers for a very reasonable price. :E Merry Christmas Gary. :C ... Eric

RE: Must list auto body repairs on return to Canada??

I would simply contact Canadian Border Services Agency and ask them. http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/contact/menu-eng.html You can call or send they an email and get you answer directly. I've done it several times and they have always been helpful.

RE: Now that is Pretty?

Colors aside, at a glance they appear to be better constructed than your average North American unit. Obviously it's difficult to actually tell but on the surface that is what I see. I would be interested in hearing from anyone who has actually been able to make an honest evaluation of European and N-American units. :h They are NOT European, nothing to with them at all, Australian, sort of American and European influences combined Yes they are definitely better built than US Trailers, that vary from very ordinary to average in build quality, from the ones that have been imported here. Continuing on with the interiors, this is one of many choices you can have from Concept Caravans, a middle run builder, again no Slideouts http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a186/RobRyan7/imagejpg1_zps5c239c71.jpg Thanks for the input, I had not realized they were Australian. Seeing the entry on the left side made me think they were from in the UK. ... Eric

RE: Equalizer Hitch Question

My Equal-i-zer pops, bangs and generally shouts back at me! :E As mentioned, it's normal. I use the Equal-i-zer brand grease at all the points of contact which really helps lesson the noises and groans. :C

RE: Camping? When did you start.

I got a 9'x9' tent for my birthday in the summer of 1959 which my Dad set up at the back of our yard. I spent just about every night that summer in it; that was my first 'camping'. We tent camped in the early '60's as a family and once I was old enough go go off on my own, my buddies and I often went on camping trips. Good times! :C

RE: To Canadian Snowbirds: Prescription medications

Hi PackerBacker, I'd love to know whom you insured with and if they operate in Saskatchewan. I had great difficulty in finding any extended coverage this year because I had a minor stroke with no permanent symptoms in March 2014. As of June 30, 2014 the Border personnel have access to how many days you have spent in USA. This may cause some grief with the 180 day rule in the near future. The only way to avoid the paper work that I am aware of, is to limit stays to 120 days per calendar year. It really depends upon your insurer and medications; mine is 30 days for my blood pressure and asthma medications. That's something you really have to shop around for. We usually head south in October, return to Montreal in November for the holidays then return south right after Christmas. I absolutely avoid scheduling any routine doctors' appointments during the time we're back for that reason just in case. I sent you a PM. ... Eric

RE: To Canadian Snowbirds: Prescription medications

Hi, If you change the dosage it automatically invalidates any medical insurance you have purchased for the visit. All changes must be made at least 90 days before you travel to USA. . ...............

RE: To Canadian Snowbirds: Prescription medications

I often travel with 3-5 months of meds and it has never been an issue provided they are in their original containers and have a valid prescription.

RE: mattresses

Our Enterra came with an Everpedic memory foam mattress, it is a full queen not an rv queen. In my opinion, this is by far the best mattress we've had in any rv.

RE: Best Option for Internet Access Traveling Cross Country?

Use a smart phone as a hot spot. Mine works great. Same here. I use an AT&T Go phone package.

RE: Jack is too short

I also use a lock of wood. Unless I'm missing something, I don't understand the issue.

RE: Grounding issues

This sounds all too familiar to me. In my case the electrician who first came to look at our 'shocking' issue was absolutely convinced the problem was within our trailer which was new at the time. It wasn't untiI I was able to plug into an adjacent campsite that I could convince the electrician and campground staff that the problem was within the park. They finally brought in someone with the proper equipment to test for breaks underground who was able to pinpoint the issue. That's when they found the corroded ground. ... Eric

RE: Place in SC

Myrtle Beach Travel Park does not rent trailers over the winter months but they do rent villas which offer more space. One thing they might try is a condo rental along the beach such as the Lands End complex at adjacent to Travel Park.

RE: Pounds "average family packs"

We unpacked everything this past spring, layed it all out and made some 'get rid of' decisions based upon what we never used in three years. Simple things like we did not need 5 table cloths or 2 coffee makers or 14 coffee cups & mugs and on and on .... Some 'emergency just in case' clothes were another thing that we removed; Walmart is never more than a few miles away!!

RE: Grounding issues

I had that at our seasonal campsite. There was an open ground at the main power distribution box a few hundred feet from our trailer. Apparently the ground at the distribution box had corroded in the ground next to the post that the box was installed on. I very much doubt it is a trailer issue. For us, we found that our trailer was ok by plugging into another campsite.
