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.


Super Guest

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. We often housesit while on our travels and that fills our ‘pet fix’.

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. The best so far has been boondocking on the arroyos and at beach palapas in Baja Mexico.

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 a bit of a challenge. We can accommodate a Class B in our parking lot, without hookups. However, in four miles there is a casino with a great treed parking area and a Walmart in town. We’d be happy to pick you up so you can spend some time with us at our lakeside condo.

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.

I just noticed we are to leave a reference. The Trekkers were excellent guests. Very quiet and respectful of our home. After seeing their small motorhome we changed from a big fifth wheel to a 25 ft motor home. Looking forward to doing some big travelling.

Canadian TREKKERS downunder (that means in Australia)

Sorry about the delay in responding, our daughter had a setback but back on track now.
This lovely couple were most welcome at our property. We were away interstate when our guests arrived at our place. We had been quite stressed as our daughter was having her fourth life threatening operation, she made it through the operation and then advise by her surgeon that a nurse present during her operation had since proved positive to the Corona Virus. Three days later she got results from her test and thank heavens she was all clear.
Our guests were wonderful company for a couple of nights and certainly helped take our minds of the whole corona virus situation and our daughter's health issues. They are welcome to return any time in the future if they venture this way again.
Stay safe, keep clean and keep your distance.

Great Super Guests...

It was easy to connect with travellers as interesting as the Trekkers. We understand why they deserve to be called “Super Guests”. Amongst their wide experience in travelling, they shared with us some options we were considering but never tried yet. This short visit confirmed that beyond places, the best memories are often about people you meet.

I enjoyed staying in Orillia. The accommodations are lovely, right on the lake, and Trekkers are incredibly gracious. A very interesting and fun couple, who love travel and are great conversationalists. I hope we meet again! I highly recommend.
