Travel tips from past travellers

Tips and tricks from renters who have been there and done that


We have asked some of our renters to share their experiences in Canada and here are some that you may find useful.

So, what did you take from your trip to Canada?


Canada is a huge country:
Even the largest motorhomes are comfortable on the roads, highways, and in the parks.

The campgrounds with full hook-ups (water, electricity, sewer) "are a real bonus"  

Most campgrounds (public or private) are well equipped with a barbecue, picnic table, and fire-pit...


Sites for campers are clean, welcoming, and often in the middle of nature.


Camping in established campgrounds or back-country: it all depends on your needs, your itinerary, and the time of year as well...

  Certain week-ends (holidays) can be very busy, and during the low season, many campgrounds are closed! 

 "Easy to find dumping stations as well as water refill stations"


"a wonderful country with courteous habitants"

"very warm welcome in the National Parks and campgrounds"

  "an excellent way to discover this immense country behind the security and ease of driving a motorhome"

Beware of the driving distances: stop often to decrease the distances and of course to better enjoy the natural parks!

Plan for a lot of driving. 


 Driving by motorhome can be tiring: take your time and enjoy

For the hiking fans: many opportunities within the National Parks and around campgrounds

Some farovites from our renters 


Gaspésie / New Brunswick / Nova Scotia

In a motorhome one can be "at total comfort in nature."


Each region has its own special rules.


Tourist offices are very well informed, don't hesitate to ask!


The ideal road-trip: around 2 weeks

It may be necessary to reserve during the high season - if not, one can "adapt their itinerary as they go along"  

In Gaspé during the month of September, the natural reserves close for hunting. It is not possible to go on hikes...


Prepare a large budget - in order to fully enjoy and be at ease.


Dont forget, every road-trip is unique. It's all up to you to create your own adventure! Safe travels!
