Take the time to go up to Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia and do the Cabot Trail Ocean trail all around the island and a million little fishing villages to see, plus the big Fort at Louisbourg. But remember no guns in Canada check with customs first you will love this trip.

Did you mean to say you wouldn't go anywhere near NYC WITH your 5'er?

I will go one better, will not go near NYC! About 10 years ago I went up there to get some alabaster stone to turn on my lathe. I found the place with no trouble but it took me over an hour to get out of the city! What a nightmare!

Happy New Year to all. Recently we were planning a trip south for Long Island NY. the trip planning service gave us direction on to parkways and through NYC. Please use caution when driving around NYC. Stay on expressways. Do not use parkways, also please if you don't want to delay your trip. STAY OUT OF NYC. So many regulations regarding propane, also in spring and summer comes parades and street closures AKA TRAFFIC. Hope this helps. Have a safe trip.

Cabot Trail and Fortress Louisburg are well worth the trip!! I have some pics of Cabot Trail in my photo album.

Following up the above post, in Nova Scotia the provincial parks open their campgrounds for the season about mid-June. School is out about the end of June. We were in Nova Scotia most of June and had no problems getting campsites, although we never tried to get one in a provincial park.

If you go to Cape Breton, consider the Bird Island Boat Tour, which takes you to an island where hundreds of puffins, razorbills, and other seabirds nest. They have RV sites at the tour. The sites are basic but have water and electricity. It's a nice family-owned business that has been operating for many years. If take the boat tour, try to get the one in the afternoon. Many birds are out feeding in the morning, so there are more birds at the island in the afternoon.

We've made two trips from South Carolina to New England. One was via I-81 through Virginia and Pennsylvania to I-84 to Massachusetts, then I-495 around Boston. The other was up the coast through Cape May, NJ. We took I-287 around Newark to avoid New York. Both routes worked well. During the second trip we picked a Mahon Dickerson State Park in northern NJ for an overnight stay, so we left I-287 at I-80 (west) and then went to I-84 to continue the next morning, so I can't comment on I-287 or I-87 north of I-80.


If you drive the New Jersey Turnpike, watch the toll booths. One lane was so narrow that I scrapped a rear view mirror. The sections of both the New Jersey and the Garden State Turnpikes that we drove were great roads. The pricing was weird. The toll for a motorhome towing a car was more than the total for a motorhome by itself and a car by itself! I didn't mind paying a toll for such a good road, but the pricing was strange.
