It's been a pretty cold and long winter so far for most regions of our great country so we're sure that most of you can't wait for spring to finally show up! It's almost time to replace the boots with sandals and the shovels with golf clubs! Pretty soon, you'll have to "de-winterize" your RV. To help you with that, we've prepared a "Spring checklist" to help you get the job done without missing any important steps!

To get in the mood for the upcoming camping season, why not head out to an RV show in your area. Upcoming shows are listed in the box below. Simply select the one you're interested in and click on the "Go" button to get more information about that show.

If you're interested in selling/buying an RV or camping gear, check out our free "Classifieds" section. We have both a "For sale" section and a "Looking for" section to help you with your sale and/or your search! As you know, RV's come in many different shapes! You can buy a "towable" RV or you can buy a "motorized" RV. You can have slideouts, AC, bunk beds, self leveling jacks.... and hundreds of other options. You can buy a 12 footer or you can buy a 45 footer. It all depends on your needs and to help you with your buying process, we have put together an "RV selection guide" as well as two checklists; our "RV shopping checklist" and our "Buying a used RV checklist". Print these and bring them with you on your next shopping tip! Also, if you want to read about the various types (classes) of RVs available on the market, click here.

An "oTENTik" structure is basically a cross oTentik unit at Parks Canadabetween a tent and a cabin and is intended to add a degree of comfort to camping (see "Glamping" below). After rolling out a few dozen of the units in 2013, initially at La Mauricie National Park in Quebec, Parks Canada made 124 available across the country last year, mostly in national parks but also at a couple of national historic sites in B.C. This year the number of units will hit 238, said Francois Duclos, Parks Canada manager of visitor experience infrastructures and the rental cost ranges from $90-$120 a night for a unit that can accommodate six people.
