One question I have, has anyone had to open their slides to allow access to the entire trailer? We have a bunkhouse that is not accessible unless the slides are completely out. For me, this also means that "all" the slides will be open.

We haven't been, but our layout allows them to see pretty much everywhere except the bathroom between the main and the bike doors.

I am always nervous about them being in there though. I just know one day somebodies going to try putting the slide out with the slide-locks in place and break something.

We were on a long trip and stopped at Many Wineries around the Finger Lakes of NY. We meandered to Lubec,Maine and set up camp. Disconnected the unit and planned to go over a bridge and visit Campobello,Island Canada. Nope,not with the Wine we had collected,so we didn't go to the Island. Youroo!!

In all our trips back and forth across the US and Canadian borders we have only been asked once to open the trailer doors and a girl looked in the bedroom and the guy in the living room, neither got in the trailer and all I got was "Nice Trailer". I always ensure the window is fully down and I have no sunglasses or hat on when I talk to the border person. For some reason most of the canadian border crossings seem obsessed about fireworks. Just be truthful and things gererally run smoothly.

Crossing the border

Never been asked for ownership on anything in 30 plus years either side
Only time border guards look in RV I find is curiosity.
Can't understand why citrus products can't be brought back to the US. We sure don't have the climate to grow them. Perhaps we only get the rejects and you don't want them back lol.
Have a wonderful visit.

Reminds me of an incident that happened to a trucker uncle of mine. Aunt and Unc went to the US to buy groceries. While there bought a can of chili. Came home. Unc put the can of chili in his lunch bag and went to work. Work sends him with a load to go cross border into the US. US Customs seized his can of chili for bringing a meat product into the US.

So, it's alright to bring stuff out, just don't ever try to bring it back.

Couple years ago we went into Canada and it was a breeze. Young guy just asked a few questions about firearms, alcohol and where we were going and for how long. Coming back into the states at a border crossing near our home, the US. agent had us pull over and he inspected the TT, opened cupboards, fridge, bathroom door etc. and we have known him for years! Just doing his job.

Best to just Google the question. We had no problems when we went to Nova Scotia to see the Bay of Fundy tides. We had birth certificates, pass ports and of course drivers license, insurance papers, titles, etc. They just ask where we were going, how long we were staying and "Have a nice visit", never ask to see anything. The US customs on the way back just waved us thru', didn't even stop. The other time I was towing a racecar trailer to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, they went thru' everything, tool boxes, racecar, cabinets in trailer, truck, my suitcase, under the hood of the truck, took 3 of them an hour. Just a wave on the way back as the oldest son took the trailer/racecar to Anchorage.

You need to see the tides of the Bay of Fundy. I think it has a record of 52+'. Only rose and fell 34' when we were there. World's highest tides 2x a day.

◾ The highest tides on planet Earth occur near Wolfville, in Nova Scotia's Minas Basin. The water level at high tide can be as much as 16 metres (52 feet) higher than at low tide.
◾High tides happen every 12 hours and 25 minutes (or nearly an hour later each day) because of the changing position of the Moon in its orbit around the Earth.
◾At mid-tide, the flow in Minas Channel north of Blomidon equals the combined flow of all the rivers and streams on Earth!
