Buying before doing a “mock live in.”

Buying a used trailer with hidden damage.

Stretching financing out too long: Some owners have ended up in bankruptcy by doing this. Never buy with no downpayment. Don’t buy based solely on an affordable monthly payment — you are asking for trouble if you do

Making the Most of Your Holiday!

Here are some tips for having an awesome trip!

  • Book your Trailer rental early. Once you have your vacation date set, call us or use our easy online booking system!
  • Be sure to book your campsite early too! You don’t want to prepare for a wonderful holiday, only to have to adjust the location to something less than what you wanted. The Ontario Provincial Parks camping site allows you to book and gives you a wide scope of information regarding the parks, their locations and their amenities. “The early bird gets the site…” Check with them close to 7 am as we have found that is a great time to find open sites. You can also call them at 1-888-668-7275.
  • Plan your meals. Not only will this help you to prep before your trip, but it will also help you save time that can be better spent enjoying the great outdoors. Write out your menu and don’t forget the snacks! Your menu doesn’t have to be complicated, a simple layout of meals will save you time and hassle.
  • Organize and measure ingredients for any meals (ie Pancakes) ahead of time and pack and label them in ziplock bags.
  • Speaking of Ziplock bags, they are handy to store food in while in a cooler full of ice.
  • Heavy duty aluminum foil can be nothing but handy while camping.
  • Freeze meat before putting in the cooler as it will keep longer and will keep other foods cold.
  • When buying ice, buy blocks. It lasts longer than cubes.
  • Want to protect your pots and pants from smoke and fire damage, put liquid soap on the outside of your pots and pans before putting them on the fire.
  • Supervise your children. Instruct them to stay within your sight and don’t allow them to wonder off. Give them each a whistle to wear around their neck to be used only in an emergency. Agree on a location to meet. Consider ID bracelets. Keep a picture of your children with you in case they get lost.
  • Use a throw rug or a piece of outdoor carpet in front of your tent to reduce the amount of dirt tracked in.
  • Always have water, snacks, matches and a flashlight even when day hiking.
  • Fleece is a good second layer for trapping your body’s warmth.
  • Outer layers vary depending on conditions. But these wind resistance, water resistance outer layers should provide convenience and ease of movement.
  • Always be prepared with rain gear.
  • For maximum comfort and blister prevention, you should wear two layers of socks, a thin polyester sock liner with a thicker outer sock. Make sure to change your socks if they get wet and also at night before going to bed.
  • Quality footwear is important for any activity. They provide stability, warmth and comfort. Make sure that you waterproof your boots. If your feet hurt, you will not enjoy yourself. Period.
  • Safety with Fire
    • NEVER build a fire near tents or other flammable items.
    • NEVER use flammable fluids to start a fire.
    • NEVER leave fire unattended.
    • Build a fire only as big as you need.
    • Make sure to completely extinguish fire.
      • Scatter ashes or embers out.
      • Sprinkle with water. Stir with a stick. Repeat.
      • Drench charred logs.
      • Repeat until everything is cold.
  • Wear sunscreen and sunglasses. You can get sunburn in a very short period of time even on overcast days. Protect your eyes from the strong ultraviolet rays of the sun and reduce glare from off the water or off the snow. Sunburn can ruin any vacation.
  • Do not operate stove or store fuel containers around another heat source such as a campfire. Only operate the stove in open, well ventilated areas. Never use the stove in a tent or a confined area.
