More info on Alaska trip
Hi All. Regarding fuel when I reached 1/2 tank I tried not to pass a gas station. The extra 11 gals of gas that I carried was comforting. There are some long stretches and if it is night time some stations may be closed. The Mile Post book is a must and so is Travelers Guide To Alaskan Camping. Several visitor centers had free wifi and are usually a good source of info. We spent $746 for camping fees in 2 months. About $3,000 for gas (approximently) Didn't add it up yet. Oil and filter changes are expensive in Canada. You are right the genny is a must. We didn't need a.c. so the 2,000 Honda was perfect. As a U.S. citizen If you have to see a doctor in Canada it costs $100 U.S. currency but the meds are way cheaper.
I have a Equalizer wd hitch 6,000/600. I had airbags put on my truck. Installed a Rock Guard on the hitch. I weighed everything that went into the camper and the truck. Used a truck scale to check to see if I was in limits. When I get time I'll dig that info out. One of my sons said "Luck favors the prepared"
He was right!
