Tent trailer camping tips? Ontario to Nanaimo (Summer 2014) with 2 kids

Jump to last reply

We're a 2 adult, 2 kid (boy 6, girl 3) Canadian (GTA) family wanting to camp (tent trailer) west to BC to visit friends. Taking July/Aug 2014 (5-6 weeks) to get there and back. I did this trip twice as a kid. Considering coming back through the States (we did that once). Hubby and I have spent time camping in US and backpacked through Aus, NZ, Asia 10 years ago. Now hoping to add kids into our passion for traveling (our home country!). So inspired by Amazing Race Canada...need to get out there and experience it for ourselves!

Done basic homework (followed busywith4 forums on Fodors), googled transcanada highway websites, researched Tripadvisor forums/tips, bought guidebook (Great Canadian Bucket List: Robin Esrock).

Still feeling overwhelmed. It's been a long time since we've traveled like this and NEVER with kids!?

Any advice (above and beyond what you've added to busywith4's forum...) would be great...wish I could find her trip report?!!

Thanks!
