RE: ALBERTA PARKS NOW OPENING

Well there are some provinces that have closed their borders to outsiders and maybe more joining. You may have to copy and paste this. https://www.cbc.ca/news/business/travel-canada-provinces-covid-19-restrictions-1.5589316 Restricting my right to travel any where in Canada any time I like is illegal. Only the Federal Government has the power to do that and only under the most severe conditions which I do not see Covid as a qualifier. I welcome the Charter Challenge. You want to lock the country down, get the Fed's to do it legally. I’m not sure what you do / did for a living, but it’s not a lawyer I’m sure. Under the Emergency Measures legislation they can, and have, restricted travel. In a state of emergency they can restrict travel, arrest those that defy those orders, in a situation like a forest fire they can conscript people to fight that fire. No Charter challenge is required, it’s settled law. Apparently not because they are being challenged. If you are ok with your politicians restricting your movements without proper legal recourse and oversight i pity you, you are a fool. Things are not as black and white as you would think or wish.

RE: ALBERTA PARKS NOW OPENING

It's not just the camping. Lots of parks here in Ontario like Pinery and Iverhuron both on Lake Huron just to name a few have crowded beach areas as well. Camping without access to the water would suck.

RE: Do I need sway bar or equalizer?

If it was me, I would get a weight distribution hitch and a friction sway bar. I've been towing trailers for about 30 years, and every trailer I tow over 2500 - 3000lbs would have one if at all possible. You can check them out at etrailer.com x2 They are not that expensive and will greatly enhance your towing experience regardless of the trucks towing capacity. I don't "need" one either but in a good wind on the wrong day you will be very thankful for it.

RE: Good Bluetooth OBD2 Scanner

I have an OBDlink MX BT in my truck. I think it was well worth the money and so far almost two YO has been very reliable. With the Forscan software on my Surface tablet it reads just about from any system in the truck and I use it daily with a droid phone with a paid Torque app. No issues.

RE: Water Damage Repair Info Needed - Please Help!

A least with the Starcraft's there is no coroplast cover over the bottom of the rig. The roof is a luan sandwich as well. Pretty sure someone in the HTT forum did a Starcaft roof on a 215SBS not that long ago. That was the smaller cousin to the 235SBS

RE: Water Damage Repair Info Needed - Please Help!

The Antigua's by Starcraft where/are prone to leaking if you don't do the maintenance, especially when they are this old. I had that exact same 235SBS and we really liked it. I think it's worth fixing. Try this web site on youtube. RV Roof Install Seems pretty knowledgeable, you probably might glean some info from it.

RE: Canda RV Parks and Fshing

We have since driven through Canada to Alaska 8 more times and have NEVER stayed in a provincial park again. Their choice on how they run their parks and my choice where I stay...Easy ! ! ! That's ok with me, hard enough to get a site in Ontario as it is.

RE: Canda RV Parks and Fshing

All Ontario Provincial parks are closed until further notice. BTW the fee you pay in Ontario pays for around 85% of the cost of the campsite to the user. They are NOT subsidized like a lot of other Provincial/State parks. Also depending on the park you could get 60' of camper into the sites if need be. Check the websites before heading out, they have all the info on site size and layout including pictures.

RE: Class V Hitch?

I’m not sure what you think you gain by ditching a WDH Saved money and time.

RE: Class V Hitch?

All Super Duty's since I don't know when have had Class V 2.5" receivers. My '06 does as well. How much tongue weight do you have now? All loaded out my rig is about 8000lbs including about 900lbs+ of tongue weight and I do use the WD bars but have them set on the lowest setting that is recommended. The Super Duty's hate to much weight being transferred to the front end as they just don't need it and it will affect the handling of the truck. The rear axle of these trucks will take a LOT of weight, give it to them.

RE: best brand for older hybrid?

Jayco, Rockwood, StarCraft are very interesting game these help to keep mind calm and lite whenever you feel these types of the game very help full and hybrid gameplay very important roles to make some real life challenges and these also help in problem-solving process I also like gam whenever I feel bore and I would like to share the second hobby that is traveling and explore best Rv rental that are affordable and comfortable for me within my budget. Use a shot glass, it'll keep the drinks honest and they won't sneak up on you ;)

RE: best brand for older hybrid?

I had two Starcraft Antigua HTT's and liked both units. KZ also made some nice units as well as Forest River Roo's. They all eventually have issues but what unit doesn't.

RE: Hand-powered chainsaw -- for emergency use

Fun fact: the amount of elbow grease needed to make a saw cut is proportional to the width of the kerf. This suggests to me that a bow saw with a suitably aggressive blade will always be easier to use than anything short of a chain saw motor using a chain. Please do feel free to prove me wrong via actual experience. You would be correct. I have used a hand powered chainsaw for interior canoe camping only because of it's small dimensions/weight but would use a bow saw if I had a choice between the two.

RE: Looks like the Canadian border is CLOSED.

btw, Canada has formally apologized and paid reparations to several groups under the current, and some past governemnts. https://www.culturalsurvival.org/news/canada-arrives-controversial-reparations-agreement It does happen. However, I agree with you, and doubt China will see any obligation to do anything, based on past performance. Still I`m an optimist, even about people and believe that at the very least we will do better the next time round.

RE: Looks like the Canadian border is CLOSED.

My breaking news app says that USA/Canada have agreed to close the border except for trade/commerce and "essential travel". That seems to rule out std RV trips. Like I said....:B I guess the commercial and public campground businesses are going to start taking a hit over the end of cross border travel for pleasure. Wonder how long this global fiasco will last? China should have to pay reparations for starting it all, if it's found they were somehow negligently involved in it's cause and their initial reaction to it's effects. I know everyone loves to point fingers but it will not solve this or the next global outbreak. Let`s learn from what we are doing now and the apply it to the next one because if anyone believes this will not happen again...............no country is going to pay any reparations regardless of fault.

RE: Looks like the Canadian border is CLOSED.

As of this morning it is closed to all but "trade" related travel and returning home travel. If you're an American returning home no problem and if a Canadian returning home, no problem. We will all get through this. Canada Border Services

RE: Looks like the Canadian border is CLOSED.

I don't believe trying to cross with an RV will be on the 'exception' list. Shouldn't be an issue but they might make sure you're not here for a long stay. Almost everything is closed or on limited hours as far as public attractions and most all restaurants/bars. Casinos and even ski resorts are closed. I wonder if the cure will be worse than the disease?
