Coldstream is a nice little Provincial campground along the river in Manning Park and is about 75 minutes from the factory; it's only partly reservable so you can usually get in even in the summer. The climb out of Hope will let you know if your tug is up to snuff too.

We picked up our 21 today. Great experience. Got to see the new 5th wheel and it is very sweet. The indoctrination went great. I took videos of the Anderson hitch hook up since that was new to me. We are staying at the Hidden Village RV Park in Lynden. It's an ok place for a night with Walmart 8 miles away. They have an exercise room that's not too bad if you are into that. We have gotten lots of attention with this camper already. One woman even called it cute. Could not find anything wrong with the camper. It's a good product.

I'm looking to stay at the Lynden KOA or Cedars at Ferndale the first night. I know I'll be exhausted from excitement and have decided I don't want to travel far that first day. Everyone needs to decide for themselves... this will work for me.[/QUOTE]

We stayed in the Lynden KOA for the first night and it was fine for a busy sunny summer weekend day. However, I wanted full hookups to test all the mechanical functions out. We left the next morning for Newhalem campground in the North Cascades NP and stayed there for the next few nights. No hookups, no WiFi, just peace and quiet.
