You don’t have to hide in your room, scouring the far edges of the internet for answers to your deepest, darkest questions about travel trailers, fifth wheels, toy haulers and other types of RVs. There is no need to be embarrassed, folks. Here are answers to the Top 5 RV Questions you want to know but are afraid to ask:


#1. Are RVs Hard to Drive?

An “RV” can be anything from a big motorhome to a small tent trailer. A motorhome is self-propelled, so it drives much like a normal vehicle...a BIG normal vehicle. A trailer, on the other hand, isn’t hard to tow behind you but you need to know the basics before hitting the road. When you’re towing a trailer the biggest difference you’ll notice is when trying to backup. When going in reverse, you have to steer in the opposite direction than you’re used to in order to position your trailer properly. Contact our team to explain the concept in further detail.

#2. Where do I Store my RV During the Winter Months?

Believe it or not you can store your RV on your own property if you like. As long as your RV is winterized it will stand-up to Canada’s harsh winters. Some people winterize their own RVs, while many other have companies, like us, do it for them. If you don’t have space, good news, many RV dealers will store your RV for the winter months so you don’t have to store it on your property.

#3. What type of RV is right for me?

There is no right or easy answer to this question. Every person is different. You have to take your budget, needs, and how often you plan on travelling into consideration. There are RVs available that sleep anywhere from 2 - 10 people. Talk to our team and get some free, professional advice on your RV needs and what RV suits your needs.

#4. Can I tow an RV with my car?

That depends on your car and the RV you’re towing. Generally speaking, you’ll need an SUV or truck to tow most RVs. There are small RVs like R-Pods, however, that can be towed behind smaller automobiles. If you’re not sure, contact us today and get some free, professional advice.

#5. Where Should I Go?

Well, the short answer is, anywhere. If you’re new to RVing, you may want to try renting one for a weekend and head out to a nearby campground. Once you’ve bitten by the “RV bug”, you will likely want to explore more and more. As long as you’re prepared, you can go almost anywhere in an RV.
