Nice looking trailer and a beautiful campground setting. Where's it at and how long would it take me to get there if I start right now? :D

It's a loooong way from Kansas!!! That picture was taken at Butterpot Provincial Park about 30 minutes west of St. John's, here in Newfoundland. It's a real nice park but then so are most of the Provincial parks here, if you like primitive camp sites. Most PPs are not serviced but do have water and dump sites available.

We are very happy with our CrossRoads Sunset Trail. Spent three weeks last summer traipsing around the Atlantic Provinces here in Canada. Never had a hitch with the trailer, and that's from a complete newbie at the time. We had no idea what we were doing most of the time but had a blast doing it!

Darn, we ALMOST made it that far last fall but by the time we finished with Maine we were getting close on time for some commitments back home and had to head back home. Our original plans were to make it up into the Maritime provinces.

I can vouch for the fact that the Maritimes are worth their own special trip. I've toured them several times, the first time 30 years ago in a pop up, and still haven't seen half of what there is to see.

Just remember to include Newfoundland in your plans. By the way, we are one of the ATLANTIC Provinces but not one of the Maritimes. Newfoundlanders can be a little sensitive on that point!

I featured the second pic on the index page - you'll see it popup in random rotation. :)

No offense taken. Most Canadians don't know the difference ( but we Newfoundlanders sure do).

Thanks PP, That's pretty cool.

It doesnt really matter if you know what you are doing as long as you are having fun, you will in time find easier ways and tricks to make things go better
