Nothing is going on here in northern Idaho, 90 miles south of the border. Would we be welcome in BC?

Hi Gary and Edie
As far as I am concerned the answer is a big YES.

Hi Rand,
My name is Harry Toews and my wife, Carol, and I just picked up our brand new 2009 Bighorn 3055RL about a week ago from Kelowna Truck and RV in Westbank, BC. We love it and are dying to take it out and do some camping! It'll be a big change for us stepping up from a 1995 Travelaire Rustles 275 with NO slides.
We would be very interested in joining a BC chapter. Keep us informed.

Hi HarryT
I'm Gerry and we have been dealing with Kelowna as well and plan to buy a Landmark. Maybe you could tell me about your experience there. If you want to PM me that would be great

I everyone.
This is my first post after joining today. My wife and I (Kathy & Paul) are dying to pick up our new-to-us 2007 Sundance 2800RLS. We don't have the time to import it until June, but after that we love to get out and see the Pacific Northwest, from our home in Langley. Hoping to meet lots of you and enjoy some more RV'ing!
PS. I drive a 07.5 Chev 2500 HD Duramax and if anyone has any questions about their truck, I may be able to help as I having been posting over at Diesel Place Forum for awhile now...and I have learned a ton of stuff.
Happy Trails!

Hi Kathy and Paul
Welcome to the BC Group. I was thinking of a fall rally somewhere in southern BC. May be Manning park or Kamloops and Merritt sometime in September.
Any ideas or suggestions you have would be great

We are the Gronberg's, full time RVers with two fiddle kids and a dog. Our landing place will be in mission. Home town is Abbotsford.

Hi everyone,

My name is Brian and my wife is Bev. We own a 2006 Bighorn 3500RL. We would love to get together with everyone at a camp-out...perhaps locally or Interior some where? Let us know.

Hi Brian
Welcome to the BC Group. Do you have any favorite places somewhere between the Lower Mainland and the interior?

05-10-2008, 12:01 PM
Hi Rand,

We have a couple. We really enjoy Sunnyside at Cultass (when it's dry). We also enjoy Nk'Mip in Osoyoos. Have you been to either of these?


05-10-2008, 09:39 PM
we use 1000 Trails at Cultus. Have only been past Nk'Mip, looks nice. We have been to the city park in Oliver a few times. Really nice small park

05-11-2008, 10:11 PM
cultus lake is a nice place. Cannot wait for the rally

We are looking at the Bighorn 3055RL and the Big Country 2950 and 3355. We have a 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 Big Horn quad cab 4x4 long bed, diesel 5.9. My questions is are we big enough to pull these campers at present we have a 24Ft. Jayco Quest but would like to step up as we plan on being full timers in a couple of years?
Thanks for any help,
Hope to be new owner of a Heartland,

According the towing guide on heartland web site, ram 2500 can not tow it. I suggest you either choose ram 3500 or Ford 350. Also Ford have special towing guide for fifth wheel. Usually trucks can pull more GVWR for fifth wheels than travel trailers. We bought a Ford F450 for towing Cyclone 4012.
