I am confused about a shot gun though as I always thought that your RV was considered a home and in my home I always have a shot gun handy for those unwelcome visitors.
Does anyone have any experience on this matter??
Not to take this further off topic - hand gun laws in Canada are very different from the US. -DO NOT BRING THEM- You're not allowed to carry, period - and the laws to transport are involved, and involve filing "flight plans" with local police before doing so; and not carrying ammo.
You can bring long guns in, as long as they are properly declared - but they must be secured, and stored separate from ammo. Unless you're coming to hunt, leave them at home, too.
There is no castle doctrine in Canada - you shoot someone, even in the commision of a crime; you will be going to jail. You threaten someone with a weapon, you will be going to jail.
Just leave 'em at home...
