That sounds like a great idea!
We have a V-Cross Vibe 6501, ugraded from a 19' Funfinder after only one year so we're still newbies at this. Usually open up the TT at Arrowhead RV in Iles des Chenes, a really nice park where all the snowbirds land before they go to their seasonal sites. Very friendly people and they think our trailer is so "cute", haha!
But so far too cold. yuck.
Planning a big trip to the Black Hills SD, booked a week late June in Sturgis already. We spend most of the summer at a friend's cottage lot in Grand Marais, nice except for the bears!
Keep in touch, happy camping!

What's the name of the camp in Beausejour?
Commander, what kind of TT do you have, looks a lot bigger than ours!

Well shovelling snow this morning but would be interested -- perhaps later in the season

We bought our Vibe 6501 at Funk's in Steinbach, great customer service, even delivered parts to Winnipeg for warranty work.

Also from Mb and live 2 miles from Birds Hill Park. Got on the Mb parks reservation site and waited for my flashing dot to move up the line. Frustrating waiting and took about 1/2 hour. Got Adam Lake, Stephenfield and Hecla booked for various times over the summer. We are heading to Lethbridge, AB this summer to see the kids and we had to book Mb, Sk and Ab which was an adventure given each province had different start dates for reservation. Couldnt get a spot at Cypruss Hills, Ab so we are at Dinosaur Prov Park an Ab. Sask reservations opened up in early March, Mb was April 1 and Ab is a 90 rolling reservation system so for July 12th date I couldnt book until April 13th. Canada Federal Park in Mb, Clear Lake, opened for reservations on April 8 and unlike last year I got in the que bright and early and waited about 20 min to get my full service spot. Luckily we got campsites booked out and back for a 3 1/2 week trip in July plus another 2 weeks in Aug. Now the snow needs to melt.
When I was young you just packed up the camper and went to a campground. None of this prebooking months in advance. DW retires next year and we can camp off season so that should make it easier.

I am not from Manitoba but have lots of family there. I will be coming out there the last 2 weeks of August. Any suggestions on campgrounds that anyone can recommend (couple hours from Winnipeg)? They can be national, provincial or private. Thanks
