Winter Blues/ RV Show

Winter 2014/2015  

Winter Blues

Here we are almost to the end of January, the first month of the year. Some people will have that winter blues feeling, not us! Since we have become RVers, we like to go to RV shows, this past weekend was no exception. If you have been following along, you will remember that we travelled to Toronto last fall with CanAm RV to help them out at the show.

 CanAm RV is where we have bought our last two  5th wheel trailers. As customers they allow us to be " Friends of CanAm"  and attend the RV shows with them to talk to others interested in the RV life style. They think we are helping them out, we are, but they are helping us. We enjoy talking to people about where and what we have done and also our plan to go fulltime when we retire next year, but we also get to hear from others, what they have done, are doing and what they would like to do.

Since we own a 5th wheel, Can Am lets us hang out in one of the 5th wheel trailers that they have at the show. I try to learn everything I can about that trailer so I can  answer questions and as much info to those that ask.

We were there for the Saturday and Sunday and had a great time, including the socializing after the show on Saturday. Below are some pics of the weekend.

The 5th wheel trailer we were in is a 2015 Mobile Suite 36RSSB3 made by Doubletree. They are truly the "Bentley" of 5th wheel trailers. Also they are a true four season trailer. Meaning, if we had to return from the south this time of year, we could live in it.

It has been a dream  to own one of these when we retire to go fulltime in. As fate would have it, the time to do this was NOW.  So the deal was made late on the Saturday and finalized Tuesday night. We are now the ecstatic  proud owners of this brand new 5th wheel trailer. We will pick it up at the end of March to have for the start of an early camping season.

To top off the rest of the winter, we still have two more RV shows to go to. The London RV show the weekend of Feb. 13,14,15 & 16th at the Western Fair Grounds and back in Toronto , Feb. 27,28 and March 1st. So if you are attending either or both, stop by the CanAm display and meet the great CanAm team and stop by one of the 5th wheels and say hi, we'll be there.

If you would like to see more pics of our trailer, go to CanAm's link below and search the 5th wheel trailer new inventory for the 2015 Doubletree Mobile Suite 36RSSB3 and check it out.
Thanks for stopping by, until the next time, take care and stay warm.
