Vehicle is currently registered with Quebec license plate, and we will pass the out of province inspection in Calgary in the middle of May so that you can register it in Alberta.

We had a really enjoyable adventure with this camper, living in it continuously for 9 months, and experiencing all seasons and weathers, from the cold temperatures of the Canadian Rockies to the rainy days of Vancouver Island and the hot California days. The large storage capacity makes it a super practical vehicle for outdoor roadtrips. allowed us to store easily skis / snowboard / inflatable kayak / camping gear / etc. If you want to be the next one to enjoy that camper, contact us and we will answer your questions and organize a visit.
