How do you get up into the bunk? Looks like you'd need a stepstool, or have to be pretty tall, as you
say you are. It was one of the challenges we could see with that type of bed setup. Looked like good use
of limited space though, which is what Class B is all about. Hopefully there were some basic manuals with
it, so you've got some reading to do. A lot of RVing is intuitive, but it's always nice to be able to get a
second opinion from another B'er. There's a wealth of experience and knowledge on this forum, and I've
tapped it many times, even as recently as today.
Now that you've bought one, you'll need some insurance. Accident/liability, and maybe some ERS too.
I'm not a sales person, and have no interest in any company, but I think there are a few RV specialty
insurance companies in Ontario. I went with one, after doing my usual beat-it-to-death internet research.
Wayfarer based in Beaverton, I found to be pretty easy to deal with. You could always try Insurance Hotline
for quotes, and I think Kanetix does the same, 3 quotes, you pick who you want to try. CAA also I think
has RV insurance. Some policies might include roadside assistance. You could ask when you call.
As far as roadside assistance, I was a CAA member for almost 20 years for my cars, and my first year of
RV ownership. Some folks on here use Good Sam ERS. It's based in the States (they serve Canada too), and
I found it's about half the price of CAA. You don't get all extras you get with CAA (that I hardly ever used)
but it looks like good basic roadside help when you have a problem. They say they are RV help specialists.
I switched last September, and haven't had to use them yet, but others have, and I've read no complaints.
There are also some places like Canadian Tire that have it, but I think Good Sam ERS may be the best deal.
All you need to do now is pick a place and go. Across Canada? I've always wanted to try that, but we keep
getting pulled south across the border, especially with our dollar doing so well against theirs. I figure when
the US gets too expensive again (if it ever does???) I'll do Canada from one end to the other. We did Gaspe
and the Maritimes last August, and we really enjoyed Gaspe. We didn't get over to NL, maybe some other time.
Anyway, welcome, congrats, enjoy.
Sorry about the ramble.
(no idea about the kayak, except get a smaller one, like you suggested)
