Forgot to say that like so many Ontarians, a trip out west, with Airstream, is on the cards for us but maybe not for a couple of years. I think we'd like to do it sans enfants and they're a bit young to leave on their own at the moment.

I was really excited to see another forum member using a smaller tow vehicle; we are very much in the minority and thought of (by some) as dangerous lunatics who have been ripped off by nasty Andy Thompson in his quest to sell trailers. You and I both know the real story and Andy will not let you off his dealership if he doesn't think the set up he's sold you will work.

Anyway, I'm constantly beating the drum for the smaller tow vehicle and it's good to see another Airstream/car combination out there.
I couldn't agree more. Dealing with Andy and the rest of the team was a great experience. Anyone who knows Andy knows what a great guy he is. He really went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and happy with our choice. Seriously, above and beyond for customer service and like someone on this forum said, I don't think you could find a single unhappy CanAm customer and they've been in business for 40 years!

We'll be out that way again in the spring for Alumapalooza and we'll be stopping by London to have our 'first year on the road' inspection. Hope to see you if you're in the area if not, look us up when you get to BC!

Both I'm sure would be fine but book REALLY far in advance if you are visiting during the summer months. People book sometimes a year ahead. There are some spots at MacKenzie that are RIGHT at the water too so try for those first would be my suggestion. Let us know when you plan to be here so we can say hello!
Thanks so much. I knew LB was popular....but it's really boomed.
Was there in the1980s.

Thanks for the invite; hope to hook-up someday!
