Hi ...you have some great plans and will have a wonderful time !
We have met two couples from Germany who have bought rvs and travelled through out N.America . One couple had been travelling in the US and liked it so much they bought a Winnebago ( while travelling ) - then had it shipped to Germany used it there for some time , then had it shipped back here to travel some more. When we met them at a campground they were on their second round of travelling through Canada .
The second couple we met at a campground in Kelowna ( 2014 ) . They had been to Canada and travelled with a rental RV Van , liked it so much that they bought a truck and 5th wheel ( huge rig ) and came over each spring -stayed for the summer and went back in the fall - left their rig in storage till the next spring . They had done this for several years ( 3 or 4) and had planned to sell their rig the fall of 2014 .
It does seem to work !

There is an owner in the Netherlands. You might want to call ETI to find out who and where for a viewing. They are pretty much your neighbors. Might as well visit them first for info and a tour of this great trailer.
Good luck with everything!!

I totally forgot about our resident Germans. You guys are probably a better resource for BæR.

Most of the ones I am referring to are younger than me, not much though. In big group parties, they tend to head home around 9-10pm, leaving just a few Germans, and a bunch of us Crazy Canucks.

Nope: B and R are the ears, æ are the eyes. B@R would either be a boar or a sleeping BæR [nice dunes in upper lower Michigan peninsula].

Confusing?

Time to go to bed in our region, Good N8,

BæR.
