Incorrect - check the link provided by F.R.O.G. above. There are several I.D. options and some, the Enhanced Drivers License for example, depend on what state or province you live if provided there.

My understanding is that you may get in here (Canada), but getting yourself back home without a passport might be a problem.(American Law)

Make it simple, bring your passport

We have been to the Hideaway twice,once tenting and then again towing our old Mallard.If you do the Cabot Trail with a larger trailer make sure you have good brakes as they will get quite a workout on the way down.It is well worth it though because of the beauty of it.

If you travel across to Maine and enter New Brunswick you can save a lot of that expensive gas. The drive through Quebec is not very direct to PEI. We enjoy the NY, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and Southern NB camping much more than what you will find in Northern Quebec & Northern NB.
We travel from New Brunswick to the Thousand Islands area at least twice per year and we always RV in the USA side because of the numerous choice of Campgrounds, tourist activity choices and of course the cost is lower.
As far as border crossing, passports will make crossing smooth. You will have the most hassle coming back into the USA. Most USA Border Guards will inspect inside your trailer and you cannot bring any fruits, vegatables or meat products back into the USA.
Have a great trip, Maine, New Brunswick, and PEI are beautiful with lots of things to do and great eating !!!!!!!!

I have a guilty face, but I'm not particularly guilty!
Seriously, thanks for all the good advice, it really seems like the consensus is that as long as my papers are in order (not my strong suit) and I'm not in a big hurry (which is the whole point of vacation) everything will be OK.
I'm looking forward to spring time, and hoping fuel prices will drop!

As stated if going to PEI from 1000 Island region it is better to go through the northern states. Have traveled both ways and find the drive better. You will have 4 lane highways if you take the route through Quebec but will have mostly 2 lane highways on the US side. The Canadian way is longer but will take less time.

Last two times into Canada, I don't know if its a requirement, but they looked at our passports (don't know if it was required or if it was what we offered them for I. D.). Also if you have or even have had a criminal problem in U. S., they won't let you into Canada. Several years ago, had a nephew that couldn't get in right away, and same year a person in another bunch going fishing in Canada couldn't get in because of a drunken driving conviction (I think) ten years before. Presently have a brother-in-law that can't get in because someone else with his same name has a criminal record. Wayne
