Hello from Canada

Hi Everyone! My wife and I just bought a new travel trailer at the RV show here in Regina, Saskatchewan. Our last travel trailer was stolen about 1.5 years ago (June 2012) and we have been itching to get back into it since. After looking around at different makes and models and what was available at the RV show, we decided on the Surveyor Cadet 291BHSS. We are very excited about it and look forward to picking it up in the spring. This trailer will work great with our 16 month old son and two large dogs.

I am sure I will be on this forum a lot over the next few months looking at different ideas people have.

Welcome to the forum and glad to see your back in the game after such a heavy knockout.

May I suggest a four legged 100lb+ burglar alarm?

Unfortunately I already have two. A 75lb boxer and a 130lb german shepard/rottweiler cross. Neither of which were anywhere near where the camper was being stored. There is no way I will store this one anywhere near where the old one was.

Congrats on your purchase. Did you buy from Minard's?

We bought our Surveyor Sport from them last year at the RV show.

Yes we did. The people at Minard's were great to us.

I looked at the other campers from Village and based on my experience there, I would not buy from them. VERY pushy and unprofessional salesmen that didn't have a clue and they mainly just bashed the other RV companies when asked questions.

So far they have been good to us as well. Spoke to Gene yesterday and he remembered us from last year. Their service and parts departments are great. Very helpful.

Which parks in Sask do you camp at?

This year we plan on going all over the place due to family commitments etc. We typically camp in the east half of the province due to proximity to family; Crooked Lake, Duck Mountain, Hudson Bay area, Round Lake, etc. We are wanting to try a bunch of new places this year.

Where in Sask do you go?
