How to plan an RV trip across Canada


I always get the urge to go and visit a new place and meet new people from different cultures. If you understand my passion you know how important it is to plan ahead each step and get things ready before embarking on a new destination.

Canada has always seemed like a faraway dream up until now when I’ve finally managed to have a spare time for myself. So I’ve made the necessary arrangements and packed my bags and went to the maple country. My friends and I are crazy about camping holiday so we’ve decided to get the best of Canada from our R




If you’ve never been to Canada and you’re an RV camping enthusiasts as well, I’ve got some sharing to do. Travelling cross-country in an RV requires some sort of knowledge of the places you’ll spend the night, camping areas, and sights that are worth checking out. Since the journey can be a tad long, it’s imperative to start planning the journey from an early time and make sure you’ve got all the reservations, travel documents, and activity schedule in order.

Because you intend to visit Canada on wheels, you should check information regarding the driving in this country. If you’re a US citizen or resident, you don’t need a visa but you will need a valid passport. Depending on the country of your origin, you might need a visa or other types of documents to enter this country.


As far as the goods you can bring across the Canadian borders, you should limit yourself exclusively to camping gear, clothing, and certain food items that aren’t restricted. Because gas is a tad more expensive in Canada, make sure to check your budget before leaving home.

If you own an RV or you rent one, you need to have valid tags that are a proof of possession. In addition, you should have all the RV documents, including the registration and the insurance, on you. If the car is rented, don’t forget to make a copy of your rental contract or a notarized letter that ensures you have permission to drive the RV across Canada.

Also, your driving license must be valid so double check it at home while you still have time to renew it. Because each province in this country features different laws, sometimes traffic signs are not same and some of them are in French.

Another important aspect that you need to consider is the campgrounds located in Canada. While some parks provide full hookups and showering areas, other don’t. Furthermore, there are private camps that feature swimming pools and playgrounds for the kids if you pay certain fees. Ideally, you should get a map with these sites and check whether they offer the amenities that you’re looking for so that your holiday experience turns into a memorable one.
