RVing Across Canada

RVing across Canada can be a lot of fun, especially when it comes to choosing a great RV destination.  LaFontaine in Penetanguishene, Ontario is located within a stunning hardwood forest.  The entire family will love the wagon rides, treasure hunts, hiking trails, heated pool and many more planned activities.  The Park Sands Beach Resort is located in Parksville, BC right next to the Community Park.  The resort itself offers its guests a beautiful beach while the park has a large playground, water spray park, tennis courts and a skateboarding park.  The Dawson City RV Park in Yukon lets their guests pan for gold in the infamous Bonanza Creek.

Once you have decided on a destination for your RV vacation, you can then start to plan the rest of your trip.  Since you will be traveling in an RV, you can pack all of your belongings inside and know that everything is pretty much set up and ready once you reach your destination.  It’s a good thing if you can leave a lot of things in the RV, especially if you use it quite often.  Many people will leave bedding, dishes and other kitchen items in the RV for the entire season.  This can save a lot of time when it comes time to leave for vacation.

You will need to make sure that you have clothing that is appropriate for the weather and that you have enough for the time that you are away.  You also need to pack all of the food that you will be eating during your vacation.  The easiest way to pack all of these items is to make a list of what you need and then start taking the items to the RV.

RVing across Canada

You will need to realize that it may take you longer to reach your destination than it would if you were driving by car.  The RV is much larger and it will take some time to get used to driving it.  The children will also have to follow the safety laws while they are riding in the RV, just like they would if they were in a car.  This includes sitting in car seats and having seat belts on.  It would be a good idea to pack bags of activities for them to do for the duration of the drive.

At the RV campground, the first thing that you will want to do is hook your RV up to the water, electric and sewer.  This will make it easier as you continue on with your day and you won’t be in as much of a rush when you happen to need the water or a light.  Some RVs have sides that expand or awnings that go up, so if yours does, this is the time to take care of all of those things as well.  Next, set up your outdoor space, so you won’t have to be inside the RV all of the time.

After all of this work, your family can enjoy their time at the RV park.  Spend some time exploring and ask the staff if they know of any areas that are must see destinations in the area.  You will all be able to take off for the day and know that your RV will be there waiting for you when you return.

Have you been RVing? Where is your favourite place to visit with the family when in an RV?




  1. I have never been RVing but I have always wanted to. I have a friend who took a year off and took the whole family across the US>.

  2. My husband and I took our oldest daughter to Bonnaroo in an RV when she was just a toddler. It was such a fun trip and we’ve been talking about doing it again with all three kids. A trip across Canada would be amazing!

  3. This would be a fun way to see a country! I have never been RVing before, you could see so much while in the rv!

  4. I have never been RV’ing but I have always wanted to. Thank you for the informatiom!

    I have never even stepped foot in an RV but it’s definitely something I’d like to do someday. And yes, definitely if travelling through Canada, you must take your wardrobe into consideration because of the colder weather.

  6. Definitely something I want to do on my bucketlist! Hubby and I actually talked about this when the kids are gone to university! Breathtaking views and amazing memories will be made! =)

  7. I never knew much about RV travelling before. It seems like a great way to bond with your children and truly explore nature.

  8. I have never been Rving. I think it would be so much fun though. My father in law has an RV and him and my mother in law took it out for a vacation over last summer. I think it would be fun to take my family out in an RV.

  9. we go camping once a year and if you don’t have your bookings in by now, you’ll be in the over flow IF you can get in at all (WE go in Aug) Overflow usually means no power and no water hook-up.

    I have never been RVing before. It looks like a great way to spend time with the family. I would love to be able to move to the next spot with everything you need .

  11. I have always wanted to do something like this! It would be so much fun to see the country as a family in an RV.

  12. I have always wanted to do a trip like this! How fun!

  13. This is something I have always wanted to do. My kids are grown now, but man they would have loved that when they were little!

  14. I always talk about this, but haven’t done it. I would love to travel the national parks by RV.

  15. We have an RV ut just keep to local spots with the kids for the most part. I dream of someday my husband and I going on big trips when we retire 🙂

  16. I love RVing, or as we call it “parking”. Every year we try to visit at least 5 states. We do repeats, but we always go to a different place to see something new.

  17. We have an RV but we don’t travel with it; it is set up on a seasonal site. We love camping and it has become our “cottage”.

  18. We’ve only RVd once but it’s one of my favorite trips ever. I just don’t like setting up the waste part!:)

  20. I would love to RV across Canada! One of my favorite things as a kid was going to different camp grounds.

    We love RV’ing. We have a travel trailer and have chosen not to park it. We want to see all of Canada. So far we have done Quebec and Ontario in Canada – we have been as far as Yellowstone National Park – loved it.

  22. I’ve always wanted to do this. I’d love to spend the rest of my life on the road RVing all through Canada and the US 🙂

  23. I would so LOVE to plan a family RV road trip. Go clear across Canada. That would be amazing.

  24. We have long talked about driving across Canada and doing it in an RV would be the perfect way to travel.
