I think my wife and I caused a lot of this problem.

We picked up our trailer late last September. We left and took a ferry to Vancouver Island, camped a couple days, drove to Victoria and then took the small ferry back to Anacortes Washington.

We arrived on the last ferry of the day at about 8:30 at night in the rain and proceeded through customs. We gave the two young agents the papers Tammy gave us, but the agents didn't know the correct regulation/code. So it took them about one-half an hour to figure it out, stamp the paper and let us back into the US.

Well, I lost track (probably threw away) the stamped import document after I had a title and registration. I figured I was done.

That was about when I got an email from Tammy asking for the stamped import document.....

First Night in our 13

Picked up our New Trailer on Friday April 12, 2013
It tows very easy. Even better than the older tent trailer.

Did some quick learning about Electric Trailer Brakes.
Dave from Escape trailers was very helpful in setting up the trailer brakes.

Had a full Orientation with Dave, that lasted about 4 hours.

Left Chilliwack at about 1pm in the afternoon, and drove through the Fraser Canyon.
Nice Drive, Stopped occasionally to stretch and walk the dog, then up to Prince George.

Entering Prince George around 7pm, it started to snow.
About 10 minutes later, after we made the turn off to go West to Terrace, it REALLY started to snow heavily.
Traffic slowed down to about 40Km and the highway went from 2 lanes to 1. Blizzard and white-out conditions.

We stopped at an RV park that was open, and stayed the night.

The next morning we woke up to about 3 to 4 inches of snow.

By about noon, it had warmed up considerably and most of the snow was gone.

The trip from Prince George to Terrace was uneventfull.

Enjoy the photos.

That will certainly be a trip to remember. New trailer and every weather condition along the way. You are probably an expert on furnace operation as well as brakes now. Keep enjoying the camping and thanks for posting your great photos sharing your experience.
