Can't really comment as I am new to the scene but just wanted to say hello. From the Sudbury area myself. Did you save a lot going south of the border?

Hello Sudbury, We are neighbors Sturgeon Falls. We been looking for over 9 months did all the RV shows and did not find nothing we like . As far as savings we did even with the exchange and the cost to go get it. The process should be painless, did all the legwork by Internet with the help of fellows rvers that guided me in the right direction.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your 2013 Georgetown 351ds. One accessory I would suggest is covers for any roof vents.

Welcome to the Forum. Born and raised in Sudbury myself. Been through Sturgeon Falls way too many times to count running back and forth to North Bay for work. Living out on the east coast in Halifax now though. really miss the hunting and fishing there the most. Can't get pickerel down here which is what really sucks.

Either the Maxxair II or FanMate depending on the CFM of your fan. Most just go with the Maxxair II even on a higher CFM fan. Not only do they allow you to keep the vents open in the rain for fresh air, they also protect the rather thin & flimsy covers from UV rays which will cause them to become brittle and eventually prone to cracking.

I love the Sudbury Guelph, Hamilton, area. My wife is a Winnipeg girl. We live in the mts of NC now, and are new to rv'ing. We have a 34 ft. Forest River Cherokee fifth wheel. We are blessed to live where there are a lot of campsites in the mts. We can't go full time yet. Love Canada and Canadians, lol I must for I married one.. I saw my first moose in Thunder Bay driving from Ontario back to Winnipeg.

Fellow northener! We are not far out of North Bay. Starting to think the only way we will ever get out there again is to put studded tires on the truck and trailer, lol. So tired of the white stuff.

New to camping or just motorhome? Just in case a great addition is the outdoor mats (get the type water & sand fall through. Great to help keep things clean. And if heading south for MH they are approx. $40.00 cheaper for a 9x12 in the US. Happy trails
