We left home in our 2017 Pleasure-Way Plateau XL MB late August for an 8 month adventure from Ontario, across Canada, down the west coast of USA and into Baja California for the winter.

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Early retirement has given us the opportunity to do what we love - wander around the country with no destination, no schedule and no time constraints. What more could we ask for?
We've been boondocking, stealth camping and staying in provincial or state parks while trying to avoid the big RV Resorts for seceral winters. Some of our travels take us overseas and then we backpack to youth hostels or find homes on We have hosted many couchsurfing travellers at our lakefront home and have found them all to be interesting and entertaining. Recently we have discovered we can combine travel in our Pleasure-Way and housesitting for a few weeks every once in a while. People of like minds usually get along well and we certainly found that Boondocking Hosts are open-minded and fun. We look forward to meeting many more of you on our future travels.

Skills & Expertise to Share

We are always ready to plan a pot luck get-together for fellow travellers.

Trekkers's Pets

We have chosen to no longer have our own pets because we travel extensively.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

With a Mitsubishi 4WD poptop camper we bought we found some great boondocking spots in Australia. The WMA areas and Equestrian Parks in central Florida have been good for us in the winter months. BLM lands in the Southwest are nice and quiet with lots of hiking possibilities.

Trekkers's Hometown

With a population of 30,000, Orillia is just an hour and a half north of Toronto, Ontario. Close enough to benefit from all that this world class city has to offer, but far enough away to be a quaint, rural town in the heart of Lake Country. We'd like to host campers but we live in a condo that makes it impossible. However, there is a casino and a Walmart in town and we'd be happy to invite you to visit us for an afternoon.

Trekkers's Rig

Rig Type: Class B

25 feet long

Late August we welcomed RoBurta into our lives. She is a new 22’ Class B Pleasure-Way XLMB. With the easy to fold away Murphy Bed we have eliminated that hassle of making up the bed every night - what a treat. And the configuration allows for a full bathroom and separate shower and lots of livingroom space with a reclining sofa. And the factory installed rooftop solar panels and built in generator allow us lots of freedom. All this and no slideout suits us for our boondocking lifestyle. Because of her, we said goodbye to NuBurt, our 2008 Roadtrek RS Adventurous Class B that was home for several months the past two winters. It seemed pretty luxurious compared to Burt, our previous VW Westy. And a big step up from camping in the minivan! We've added a couple of extra feet onto the 22’ length with a swing-away box to hold our camp stove and bbq. Our bikes come in really handy for day trips into towns without closing up camp.

Good People

The Trekkers spent a couple of days with us. They are very nice, well traveled people. We enjoyed several hours of sharing stories about our world and USA travels. We taught them a new way to enjoy chocolate cake. We have a couple of new friends next time we visit Canada; eh? :)
