​Helpful Advice

​Things to think about before your motorhome holiday

Travel Documents

Please make sure you have all the necessary documentation with you when you leave, including;  

  • Passports 
  • Canadian Visa (see Canadian Government web site
  • Motorhome Voucher 
  • Air tickets  
  • Valid driving licence (for all members who wish to drive) 
  • Credit card for local deposit 


First Night Accommodation 

We strongly recommend that clients spend their first night in Canada in a hotel. Same day pick ups are not permitted for customers arriving on international flights.


Vehicle Collection & Return

When you arrive at your destination you need to call the local Fraserway RV depot and confirm your pick up date/time and where you are staying if a local transfer is offered. Details will be provided with your booking confirmation.

Transfers are available in certain locations only- see pick-up information for full details. Your vehicle must be returned by 12:00. On return your vehicle should be clean inside and with a full tank of gasoline. At certain destinations we have shuttle buses that return to airport terminals or local hotels.  See pick-up information for full details.

Upon arriving at the local depot you will need to fill out a standard rental agreement form and provide a valid credit card as guarantee. You will be shown an instructional video (in French if required) to help familiarize yourself with the motorhome and a professional staff member will show you around the vehicle, answer any questions and provide driving guidelines. You will also receive a full instruction manual regarding every aspect of your motorhome.


Trip Planning

We recommend you book your first night campground in advance (see our Campgrounds page) or, if travelling in peak season, you may want to book a few nights in advance. Most campgrounds can accommodate all types of motorhomes and we recommend you request a "pull through" site to make parking your motorhome easier.


On The Road

As soon as you leave the rental location, we recommend you buy some necessary food essentials. Most rental locations will have a local map and a nearby supermarket you can get to easily. Parking is not a problem; there are usually spaces for a motor home.

Once you’ve filled the fridge and familiarized yourself with the vehicle, its time to hit the open road. If this is your first time, don’t worry, motorhomes are no harder to drive than a large car. Take it slowly to start with and build up your confidence. You will quickly appreciate how easy it is to drive a motorhome. Fraserway provides a full roadside assistance program which is available during normal business hours and most holidays throughout the year. Details provided at check in.


At The Campground

We recommend, for your first night, to get to a campground as early as possible so you can become familiar with the ‘hook up’ process in daylight. Many RV campgrounds have ‘full hook’ up facilities (water, electricity & waste) A 'pull through' site is great for the bigger vehicles because you can drive in one end and straight out the other. Always check with campgrounds on your route for availability and services.
