Sold the sailboat, bought a X17C. Borrowed a pop up last summer and camped around Thunder Bay area. (We live in SW Ont.) Enough to convince us to go this route for now. Used to camp with the kids at lacrosse tourny's in a VW Westfalia.
We are towing with an 08 Ranger 4L. super cab 4x4. Rated 5500lbs.
Huskey WDH and sway control. Converted to LED and 80 watt solar panel. Single battery 115 AH. Operated 9 days on solar with no problems. Will probably add another battery next year. Leaving Thursday for a month to provincial parks with no electric. Trip is about 900 miles north.

A month in the provincial parks, fabulous! I grew up and still live in Minnesota, and as a kid I loved our trip to the Sioux Narrows/Kenora area and Rushing Waters PP.

Love Thunder Bay!! Was there 20++ years ago, started my junior year in high school 1 week late because my parents and I were in Canada.
Toured the pulp plants. Went to Duluth to watch the cargo ships. Good times!
