You should try Squamish BC, it is about 60km north of Vancouver, along the sea to sky highway, which in itself is a fabulous drive =] (absolutely beautiful!!!!)
It is a popular destination for rock-climbing and wind-surfing (because it is in a bay), as well as hiking, mountain biking etc....
Also, you will pass by Horseshoe Bay (Nanaimo) which has the ferry to Vancouver Island (which also has awesome camping!!!)
I am almost positive that all the provincial parks there have non-reservable sites, for the first come first served.
It is a spectacular part of the country, and just thinking of it makes me want to do a cross-country trip to go camping there =]
Squamish is also on the way to Whistler, so there are lots of options for you if you want a multi-destination trip all within close distances.
As for going states-side, there also is numerous campgrounds in Washington that are rustic, and do have sites available, but I would check-out Squamish first!!!!

A number of years ago we stayed in Sqamish for a couple of nights in a private campground, very nice , almost right on the highway and there was a waterfall across the road, can't think of the name.

Also, in Richmond BC there was a campgroung not too far from the dike but again that was years ago, no idea wether it's still there or not.

The site near the river is now gone and replaced with the Olympic Skating Rink.

Here is a good resource for camping in BC.

Guess your Ontario camping buddies were not good enough for you

I am just kidding ... I hope you will have a lot of VERY happy camping days in BC ! You gave us a reason to make the drive there one day

If you're looking at the Tri-Cities you should be OK for storing your trailer on your driveway.

I'm in Pitt Meadows and there is no bylaw against it.
Coquitlam has a maximum length allowed - 28ft I believe.
Port Coquitlam - not sure.
Port Moody - well, if you can afford to live there then storing off-property shouldn't be a concern

Have your realtor get the facts for you 'cause most storage "facilities" are out in the Fraser Valley area (Aldergrove/Abbotsford) and amount to a farmer's field.

Cheers, and welcome to the "Left Coast."
