Unfortunately I didn’t get a picture but yesterday we saw a Vixen RV at the Rock Lake campground in Algonquin Provincial Park. IIRC it was a 21SE model. To me it looked like a motorhome that Delorean would build.

Thank You for the answer! I guess they try to make you think it is something "Special " when it is just a "B&B"! Youroo! !

You are old enough to remember back then! I see you made it!
I am a survivor of the 50s and 60s no bike helmet, wooden spoon, the belt, grounded for a week, playing in dirt, no computers, riding my bike all over town, going down the hill on my bike doing 50 and having to brake because I had a car in front of me and did not want to pass , fishing and playing in the river and many other things. so he had his kids in the boat most campgrounds have a speed limit of 10 no harm no foul

Just another business to make money second hand. Much like uber/lift. The company website runs and books it and you use your car/ property to make them money. Along with putting a little in your pocket.

I kinda of think the Air part is the company that handles the paperwork-reservation and all. You list your B&B on their site. They rent it for you and keep a portion of the money. Your B&B can be about anything. Like from a camper on your property to your complete house and barns. Many places like this near college towns for game day overnights.

itat, here is some additional information. Yes, some of the Delorean team was in on this design. Although not credited, my uncle did the mechanical design work and development of that RV.

Not to worry about a picture, I have seen several. He also worked on the design team for the GM motor home in the 70ís as well. If you look close, you will see many of the same design cues.

Was that at the lookout near the end? We were there on Monday afternoon. When we got to that lookout a chipmunk ran out looking for handouts but we didn’t have anything for him. We’re in Mew Lake Campground until tomorrow.

Edit: We also saw a heron similar to the one in your picture at Peck Lake.
