Can't wait for spring!
Hi, It was a good show, took in the maintenance seminar, looked at the 2013 X213....didn't like the fake wallpaper back splash and wasn't sure I liked the new exterior colors but we liked the interior colors especially the brown "fake leather fabric" on the couch. I almost splurged on the mobile 120 watt solar kit. It was pretty cool, it was a fully self contained kit that came in a carrying case included the controller that was selling for $549.00. When we left, we forgot the buy the House of Q bbq rub that we liked so much last year. The 40 watt, I think would be too light duty for charging the battery. I would need at least the 95 watt solar kit for my requirements and I currently am using my Champion 2000 watt invertor generator to charge the battery for 4 hours a day that is allowed at Provincial campsites although I am allowed to run it thru out the whole day if I need to due to having to charge the portable battery pack for my CPAP machine (considered a medical device) ....have my eye on a 3000 watt Yamaha that I saw at the show for $2000.00 otherwise I will buy Honda 3000 from Carter Motor Sports in Vancouver. That one is on special for $2200.00. I am so ready to camp again, we have a group site with electricity booked at Alice Lake for the Canada Day Long weekend this year and plan on camping starting mid March if the weather cooperates with us.
