Toronto RV Show

Better Late Then Never

Well here I go again, late with a post. That seems to be a theme right now. I have written about this RV Show before, so that's maybe why I wasn't in a hurry. RV shows are RV shows, the same thing really, just a different location, different people and trailers. That being said, we still see some of the same people from one time to the next. They are still looking for that perfect trailer or they are there for something to do.  They usually remember that we are going full time next year and ask if we are still going to, the answer is YES!!! We enjoy our time here, meeting people who are interested in RVing. Talking to them about what they do,  would like to do, what kind of trailer they are looking for and about what we do.

We did have a great time meeting new people and talking to a few we have met before. We really enjoy talking about full timing and can't wait to start next year.
The other side of this , is the time we have with the staff of Can Am RV. Not only at the show but also the social time afterwards. Dinner on the Saturday night is always a great time, great company and food. A time to unwind from the day and relax. For the staff of CanAm RV, this is work, try and get leads and sell trailers, make those deals.  For us, we get to show up and tell our story and listen to others and at the end of the weekend leave for home. 

Good Times

Great Conversation

Good Food

There is still a lot of work to be done that we don't have to do. Taking down the display and packing everything to come back to the dealership. We aren't sales people so no pressure. Having said that, there is nothing like the feeling when one of the sale people will say to a customer, " here is Pat and Bill, they're customers and own a DRV", we can then answer questions they might have about a certain trailer. what do we pull ours with and so on. That conversation may and has helped a couple to buy.
The next show will be in February and we get to do it all over again. 

The last couple of weeks we have been getting ready for winter, cleaning up around the yard and winterizing the trailer. While doing this, I discovered some damage done to the roof of the trailer by tree branches. Not sure where or when, though we have an idea. Just waiting for the insurance adjuster to give the go ahead and have CanAm fix it, probably in early December. Until that is done, I won't get the vehicles arranged in the driveway for winter the way I do. During this process we think of what is coming and it saddens us. We just have to remember this will be the last winter here we hope for a long time  and look forward to what is coming. The selling of our house, retirement and full timing.Well for being late and not thinking I would have much to say, this has become a story.

 Thanks for stopping by for a read. Until the next time, take care. To all our full time friends on the road heading south, take care, drive safe and enjoy.
