RVing in Canada

RVing in Canada is gaining in popularity as an affordable vacation that allows complete freedom to choose your destination. Follow the Atlantic coast from the seaside cliffs of Newfoundland and Labrador...the quaintness of Prince Edward Island...visit small fishing villages and enjoy some seafood.

Canada is a vast country and Canadian RVing is an ideal way to experience its true magnificence. Stop in historic Quebec City and view its architectural heritage...canoe in the wilds of Northern Ontario...catch a show in Toronto and see Niagara Falls the same day. As you wind your way through the country make a detour to Northern Manitoba for polar bear watching in Canada.

As you cross the plains of Saskatchewan and Eastern Alberta it won't be long before you catch a glimpse of the magnificent Rocky Mountains. Visit Jasper for some mountaineering in Canada...continue to Banff for some backpacking in Canada...and cross the mountain divide into the ancient rainforests of British Columbia.

You will never tire of RVing in Canada because over the next horizon there is something amazing to see and experience. The people are friendly and the RV campgrounds are set into the Canadian wilderness.

History of Canadian RVing

RVing in Canada originated from the popularity of car camping in the 1920's and 1930's. Campgrounds began to "pop up" along well-traveled highways offering electrical and sewage hookups. The car was slowly replaced by vans as the vehicle of choice for the camping set.

As the popularity of camping grew so did the choices for camping vehicles. Tent trailers that you towed behind your truck or car...caps for your pickup truck...Airstream trailers...and finally the standard Recreational Vehicle (RV) you see on the roads today.

Popularity of Canadian RVing

According to Go RVing Canada, there are over 1 million recreational vehicles on the road in Canada. The top reason given for purchasing an RV is an affordable vacation with "the freedom to come and go". For those who like to travel the open road and experience the countryside, RVing in Canada is a cheap holiday.

Almost 70 % of RV owners are under the age of 55, so Canadian RVing is not just for retired folks. They are becoming popular with younger families. In 2003, 45.7 % of inquiries for the RV lifestyle were from the 18 – 44 age group.

With the long Canadian winters many residents want to spend as much time as possible enjoying the outdoors. RVing in Canada allows people to "take their home with them" as they embark on their summer adventure. Some families park their recreation vehicle at a local campground and commute to work from there.

Rising vacation costs have moved some individuals to choose RV's as a way to have a cheap holiday. You can avoid airline costs, hotel and motel costs, and restaurant expenses by traveling in a well-stocked recreational vehicle.
