Yeah, we are in PEI and the temp this morning was 57F and we are FREEZING; although 57 is certainly better than 108+++++++++

We are in PEI now and just started taking pictures of lighthouses. We just took a picture of the 2551 in the same spot as the picture of the 2350 Sprinter. It will be fun to see them side by side.

We had our 2350 Sprinter weighed last year when we left for our 3 month trip. Our Sprinter did not have a slide. Total weight unloaded was 9200 lbs. The front axle was 3400 lbs and the rear was 5800 lbs.

Loaded total weight was 10,360 lbs. Front axle was 3660 and the rear was 6700 lbs.

We are now in Maine, having travelled from Florida in our 2551. We still love the ride of the Sprinter as compared to the Ford E450. We have had 2 Sprinters; the 5 cylinder  and 6 cylinder. This is our first Ford.

We had a 2010 2350 Sprinter and traded it this year for a 2011 2551 (Ford chassis). The reason we traded the Sprinter was the corner bed. It did not work for us. The 2551 has twin beds which are much more comfortable for extended cruising. If there was a twin bed model PC Sprinter, we certainly would have stayed with the Sprinter. We are now in Massachusetts and the Ford has 3400 miles. Here are our Pros and Cons:

Better ride on the Sprinter, Better MPG with the Sprinter, Cab more comfortable in the Sprinter.
Finding diesel is a problem at times and the cost of diesel is greater.

2551 is a bigger vehicle. The 2350 Ford is an E350 and the 2551 is E450. The heat that radiates from the floor in our 2551 .is very hot. The legroom is the cab is less than the Sprinter.

It is still too early to really tell how we like the 2551. For us, it was all about the coach accomodations and that was the reason for the trade. Coach House builds a twin bed Sprinter but the cost is high.

After leaving Promised Land State Park at 6:15 AM, we took RT 84 through PA into CT. The road was so rough our toilet seat broke! The hinges rattled apart! Now, George has to try to fix the seat before we leave for Maine, New Brunswick and PEI.

Then call Carol to try to get a new seat delivered somewhere++++++++++

We are now in Mattapoisett MA 'til Monday.

It was fun to meet Bob and Peg at Promised Land SP. Fun couple of hours! Nice people, as I am sure most PC owners are!

She's loaded and ready to go. We are tired and ready to go. We should get  out of the heat and humidity of Florida at 6:00 A.M. tomorrow.

Hope to see you either on the road or at one of the campgrounds we will be at.

Two monthes in the new 2551 should be a blast.

Hope to see Bob and Peg at Promised Land State Park in PA and Dick and Trish in PEI or Nova Scotia.

You learn something new every day on the Forum! I checked with Dish Network and they are not available in Canada. Now we know not to waste our time trying to get sat t.v in Canada.

We brought along our Winegard Carryout and our Dish Network receiver last year and did not use it once. Didn't even try! We found that, with the batwing antenna, we picked up many stations--not as many as with the Dish network, but enough for us. Actually, we really got used to the Canadian stations.

We have had problems with our cell phone in all the Provinces so we try not to use it. We have found that some Provincial Parks have internet service and the Visitor's Center in PEI has computers that one can use as well as WiFi. We park in the Wood Islands Visitor Center's parking lot and use our laptop. It's great!

We did not get to Halifax last year so this year it is a possibility.

Another place that we enjoyed was Campobello Island, New Brunswick. We toured Roosevelt's Summer Home. We stayed at Herring Cove Provincial Park on the island. Nice but rustic. Oh yeah! The state bird of the Maritimes is the mosquito. Bring bug spray.

Now on PEI.
If you can take the Ferry onto the Island and the bridge off island. The Ferry runs from Pictou NS. There will be no charge on the ferry to PEI. You pay when you leave the island. PEI is more rural. Just beautiful scenery. On Adventure Anywhere you will see our last PC in front of the Wood Island Lighthouse.
Wonderful food! Mussels, Oysters. Our favorite restaurant on PEI is Clamdiggers in Georgetown. It is a must for us.
I believe that the National Park on the North Shore of the island is beautiful but we won't stay there due to the additional daily fee (for each person).
We will be on PEI from 8/4 through 8/16. We will be at Selkirk PP from 8/4, leaving on 8/9. Then on to Panmure Beach PP 8/12 and 8/13. Then to Brudenell 8/14 and 8/15 leaving the island on the 16 for NS.
If you see us, say hi!

You have come to the right place!! We are leaving next week for our 3rd trip in 3 years to the Maritimes. Last 2 years were for 3 monthes, this year will only be 2 monthes due to family issues. This post may be too long here but here I go and PM me with any additional ?
We try to stay in Provincial Parks in PEI and NB. Most of them have electric/water (called 2 way sites)and offer a senior discount. Brudenell in PEI even has cable and a pool. NS PP are a little more basic. Get the guides at Visitor Centers. The 1st year we stayed at Fundy National Park. It was nice but not worth the $$. In addition to the site fee, a daily entance fee is charged. That brought the nightly fee to almost $50 a night. This year the exchange rate is 4% more. On Cape Breton, we enjoyed Baddeck Cabot Trail Campground. Easy to do the Cabot Trail from there. They have a pool and a small restaurent on site.
What to see!
Hopwell Rocks and Cape Enrage in NB
Louisbourg Fortress and Alexander Graham Bell Museum in NS
Glenorra Distillery-only single malt scotch distillery in North America in NS
Peggy's  Cove in NS
