Welcome to the group Dave.
I'm from just on the western outskirts of Ottawa (Dunrobin).
We share a passion for canoe camping in Algonquin park. I've loved every lake we paddled...although I recall a hike around some lake called .... bBack fly lake.... that wan't so fun.
My wife and I are avid canoe/hiking campers that have just purchased a vintage AS (69 Caravel) as a means of getting our two younger children to enjoy the camping experience early on. My hope is to use the Caravel
as a base camp and do some overnight tent trips - to sow the seeds of adventure.
The pressure is on though. I've had the trailer since last fall and our "planned" first AS vacation is in one week. I've been slowly tackling things like frame rot, floor rot, ants, etc. I've jsut about finished putting the new laminate floor in and then I've got to return the shower/bath and beds.
Finally, I've got to buy a tow vehicle....I've been watching the used market for a GMC Safari. I had hoped that my Hyundai Tucson would be adequate but the feedback from the forum is that I'll need something a little bigger.
I hope find your trailer soon.
Enjoy the summer.
