Our club, as others, has been experiencing a drop in membership due to older members deciding to stop RVing, and hence leaving the organization. This has been occurring over the last several years now, and the remaining members had some informal conversations about our future. Late last year, the remaining members met formally and decided that it was time to make some decisions about our future. At that meeting, we decided to discontinue our Chapter. A few of us will continue RVing and remain as an informal group of friends/RVers.
Our objective is simple - to give you what you want.
We are truly a readers' magazine and Canada's favourite RV publication. Our commitment is to make every issue better than the last. more info
