Winterized the trailer last week.......

....and just in time, went down to -6 C last night and it snowed 15 cm. So all is good, another camping season came to it's end and it was, at least for us a very good season.

In May we camped a week in Banff National Park, in June we went for 2 weeks to Waterton Lakes National Park. In July I went for a week to West Canal Recreation Area. We had planed to go back to Waterton in the Fall but changed our mind and made one more trip to the Yukon. We left on July 30th and were back home on August 25th.

All in all we towed that little trailer about 8000 km without any problems whatsoever.

Every thing finally worked as designed, found the problem with the kitchen lights, (pinched and chafed through wire behind the heat stack of the fridge)
the water heater was an easy fix once the problem was found (defective propane regulator).

We had the wheels balanced and filled with nitrogen when the trailer was new, this Spring we had the bearings repacked, it's more expensive than just pumping new grease through them but this way the bearings get inspected as well as you get new seals installed.

All in all we are really happy with that trailer now.

If anyone is interested the pictures from our Yukon trip are here but be warned, there are many. Yukon Trip August 2012 Photo Gallery by Heinrich Lohmann at

Wish everyone here up north a good winter and the lucky folks down south happy camping.
