Frequently asked questions
ARE THERE ANY TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS ?

Saturdays 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
WHEN IS A REALLY GOOD TIME TO RENT A MOTORHOME ?
The month of May is a good time for a motorhome vacation because of the nice weather. It is the best pre-season time with lower prices on campgrounds and ferries as compared to June through September. In addition to our low prices, we offer an additional special discount of 10% for the month of May.
Long daylight hours and seeing wild animals add to the quality of a holiday. Camp fires are still permitted up until June, when there is a greater risk of forest fires. Campground reservations are not required at this time!
