Perks to RV Travel:

RV travel makes camping more comfortable and convenient but still allows you to escape into nature. Breathe in the fresh air, enjoy spectacular sceneries, spend quality time with friends and family, and relax by the campfire.  

Explore Canada Safely

The experts agree that camping is the safest way to travel this year. Travelling in a self-contained RV is a low-risk activity. An RV allows you to keep your distance, avoid shared facilities, and poorly ventilated restrooms. Renting a self-contained RV allows you the freedom to travel, escape the city, and do so in a fashion that adheres to the social distancing guidelines.

Relax by the fine on your RV adventure

Travel in Comfort

Travel safely but travel in comfort. With a bed, kitchen, air conditioner, and washroom you have everything you need for ultimate convenience while you travel. If you get tired on the road, pull over at any truck stop, and take a nap. Stretch your legs in the RV while it rains and make a snack in your kitchen on wheels. Enjoy extra creature comforts with reading lights, an audio system, somewhere to charge your phone! Exploring Canada in an RV offers is next-level comfort.

Pack Everything 

One of the best things about travelling with an RV is that you can bring everything. There is no 50 pound limit with high fees if you want to bring an extra suitcase. So, pack up the hammock, your favourite pillows and blankets, cast-iron skillet, your coffee grinder, all the sunscreen, and skincare products, and lots of towels, you get what I am saying. Pack an entire wardrobe and bring all the creature comforts you desire.

Don’t forget all the outdoor adventure gear. And, while you are at it throw the canoe and kayaks on the top and bikes on the back. Now you are set to travel local and explore Canada and your Province.

No Hotels

One of the greatest convenience factors of an RV rental is you are essentially renting a hotel on wheels. This means no stress trying to find a hotel, get to a specific destination, or follow an itinerary. Don’t worry about lugging your suitcases upstairs into your hotel room, or constantly unpacking and repacking. There is no concern about keeping your distance or worrying about the cleanliness of a rented room. Just load all your items into the RV and get comfy in your epic vacation home on wheels.  

Your vacation home on wheels goes where you go. When you get too hot in the mid-day sun take a nap right at your destination and get back to the adventure as soon as you’re done. Napping is part of a vacation! A mobile home base means you can have a bbq lunch wherever you’re parked. At the end of a big day, lounge with friends and family where you are, cook dinner in nature and don’t worry about hitting the highway to your overnight destination.

Cooking outside tastes better!

Affordable 

Once the RV is rented you can make your vacation as affordable as you desire. Park for free beside your new favourite lake or rent a site in a campground.

Having a kitchen with all the accessories can save a lot of money when you make your own meals. Load up on your favourite camp food and treats! We all know food tastes better outdoors.
