We pull a 20 ft travel trailer and enjoy seeing new places and meeting new people. We are especially fond of finding spots to stay that are close to beaches and close to small towns. We like places that offer areas to walk, ride our bikes, or just relax. We enjoy the chance to learn about the history of an area and perhaps enjoy the local cuisine.
We have enjoyed traveling pulling first a tent trailer, then a R-pod, and now have a Prolite. We have been doing this for over 10 years now. In that time we have travelled throughout the Maritime provinces, Quebec, Ontario and the Magdalen Islands. We also have traveled across Canada in a 23ft Class C. We have also spent time travelling and exploring South Carolina and Georgia, staying at state parks and boon-docking on our way.
Not at the present time.
We like to travel on the smaller highways through small towns, stopping by a picnic area or by beaches.
We live in a small picturesque seaside community called, Hubbards on Nova Scotia's south shore. We live near a number of beautiful beaches and are not far from Peggy's Cove and the historic town of Lunenburg. As well, we are just a 40 minute drive away from Halifax City.
We pull a Prolite Supreme with 2 bikes on the back. Total length with bikes would be 24ft. It has 2 slides, one on either side, for a total width when they are open of 8ft 4 in. Overall height is 8ft 6in. Our towing vehicle is an SUV.
So many good things to say about this interesting, personable couple: respectful of your schedule, time, and, space; gracious; excellent conversationalists. We are so pleased that they chose to be our guests and, quickly, our new friends. Looking forward to meeting up again on their home turf in beautiful Nova Scotia.
Loved this beautiful and interesting location, which is in an area we would not have otherwise discovered or enjoyed. Sailon represents everything that is best about Boondockers Welcome. We are so happy to have come to know them and grateful that they opened their home to us.
We greatly appreciated our stay. This was our first experience with Boondockers, but certainly not our last one. Thanks a lot to Terry & Cherie who went far beyond what we expected. Hope to see you again:)

I must apologise. When we returned from our trip in June I wrote a reference for this wonderful couple thinking it had posted. I am now aware it didn’t, my bad. We had a great stay at between the beaches. It is indeed near some of the most beautiful beaches. Sailon were very welcoming and we had an interesting talk and enjoyed hearing of their travel experience, learnt a lot.
Thank you again and hope to be back in beautiful NS someday.
Great spot! Welcoming stay and enjoyed conversation ... enjoy when teachers get together :) ! Loved the homemade granola! - recipe? :)
Thank you for taking my Boondock on short notice, truly appreciated! Got a chance to drive the area, look at listings, and go to the beach - crossing my fingers! Did my groceries at Sobeys which was great to be able to stock up on the way to camp (very close), my gas (where you directed me) ... and went to Peggy's. Very good location with tourist destinations, gift shops and amenities! Beautiful Gentle Nova Scotia!
hello from Big Pond thank you for letting us stay at your house and giving all the good travel tips.
We had a great time with Sailon and enjoyed the time with them. My wife and I are endorsing this wunderfull couple and hope to meet them again in the near future.
a big hug from Gabi and Joe
