Lucy said that going from Calgary to Toronto “felt a bit like being thrown in at the deep end”. There’s something about the Great Canadian Outdoors that can be incredibly intimidating for campers.
Be it the cold climate, the varying weather and ground conditions or the fear of an incoming moose attack (that last one is mostly a joke for warm climates try Califonia).
But Lucy and her sister Lorna decided against camping out and used an RV to travel the GWN (Great White North) together. Lucy says that “it turns out RVing is a world away from camping, and [the Canadian Outdoors are] the perfect place to try it out”.
Essentially you get the best of both worlds. Lucy says, “You get the benefits of camping – beautiful landscapes, nights around the campfire, the feeling of being back to nature – but without the actual tent bit”. That sounds nice. But what about people who explore but don’t like the idea of roughing it…
Luckily Lucy has given us some of her must-have items on an RV trip. These are such as, “Comfortable bed, decent toilets, hot showers, space to unpack and somewhere to keep the wine cold”.
According to Lucy, “RV life is a lot more like a mini mobile apartment… It was surprising how much was packed into a small space”.
“So there you have it. Words from a travel guru. RV + Canada = amazing and comfortable adventure. You can get so much out of an adventure like this all from the comfort of your vehicle. Sounds good to us!
