RE: 2019 Cross country RV trip planning

Hi, everyone. Thanks for all your help. I still haven't figured out how to post pics, but at least come back to do a report, tell you all that we did it! From May 23 to Aug 6, our cross country RV trip from Moncton, NB, to Vancouver, BC, Canada finished. We visited NFL, NB, NS, PEI, Quebec, ON, BC, 7 provinces in Canada, crossed MI, IL, WI, MN, NE, WY, MT, ID, WA 9 states, visited WY, MT and WA. Driven 16,678km. Highlights on the way: Hopewell Rocks, Lobster all you can eat buffet, Peggy’s Cove, Cape Breton National Park, Iceberg Alley, Gros Morne National Park, Old Quebec City, Montreal Jazz Festival and Circus Festival, Devil’s Tower, Yellowstone National Park, Bighorn Canyon, Red Lodge (Beartooth Road), Grand Teton National Park, Glacier National Park. We used $3655 for gas, $125 for bridge and tolls, $950.85for small repairs and a new RV battery and some little equipments, $705 for campsites, $420 for NFL ferry, $275 for boat tours, $136.5 for Canada National Park pass (we had the US one already). Totally cost except the food is $6250 Canadian dollars. 77 days, because we didn’t book those popular national park campsite in advance, we only stayed at 5 campsites for 26 days (the campsite in Quebec City shouldn’t really call a campsite because it’s a city runs parking lot, no service, but the location is very good, only $15/night; the most expensive campsite we stayed was in Cody, WY, 1 hour from Yellowstone National park, we got a 15 % discount for staying for a week, it became $50 Canadian dollar/night; other campsites are around $20 Canadian dollar/night because we have Passport America membership, got 50% discount for less busy season); we stayed at different friends’ house for 25 nights; dry camping for 26 nights, including stayed at different Walmart for 14 nights, NFL 6 nights, other stores and casinos for 6 nights. Cheapest gas we bought was $2.249/G in the US, converted, that’s $0.8022/L. The truck and RV were bought in 2017. Never really thought I would use it for a cross country trip. The regional plan was using it as my Canadian home, a summer home on the east side of Canada. The truck is a F150 XLT long bed, 5.4 L V8 superpower. Even the Crossroad Sunset 28L 5 th wheel trailer is a Superlight one, the truck is still a bit under power for it, especially we have to cross the Rocky Mountains to reach Vancouver. Thanks to my “White Knight”( that’s the name we gave our F150, he is an amazing truck, we love him so much). The average gas usage should be 15L/100km without RV, 25L/100km with RV, but with climbing the hill, the worth one was 31L/100km. Mr Energy Save Master achieved the unbelievable records: 11.55L/100km with AC, without RV, saved 23% compared with average usage;22.75L/100km with AC and RV, saved 10% compared with average usage. And we will still keep our promise: take the public transit whenever we can in the next year, to do our best for the environment and our kids.

RE: 2019 Cross country RV trip planning

Hello, everyone. It is really a busy year. Just come back to do a report. We did start our trip since May 25 without a detailed plan. Luckily, we have finished NB, NS, NFL, PEI, Quebec City, Montreal, Ottawa, now we are in Toronto. Everything seems fine at this point. We enjoyed a lot. Of course a bit stressful, not because of F150, more because of no experience and no detailed plan. But so far so good. We will keep going. Since we are still on the way, may no internet to respond. But I will come back report more and post some pics in the future. Thanks again to everyone here. Thanks a lot for your advice and help.

RE: 2019 Cross country RV trip planning

Thank you, guys. I am out of country. I don’t know why I can’t use this site when I am in China. Appreciate all your suggestions. Will ask more questions when I come back to Canada. Thanks a lot. Happy new year to all of you.
