What to Do in Winkler

Hey everyone –

My post this week isn’t exactly an RV Park Review, even though there’s an RV park in the video.

And the video’s also not even on this blog!

But it’s closer to an RV park review than any of our other categories, so here it is.  When Stef and I traveled to Winkler, Manitoba a while ago, we took a bunch of footage of the town and its attractions.  We put together a video review that you may want to check out if you ever find yourself headed to the headquarters of Leisure Travel Vans up in Canada.  You can find the review and the video over on the Leisure Travel Vans blog, here:


And even if you don’t plan on visiting Winkler, the video’s still an interesting look at this small Canadian town where Dean and the rest of the LTV crew live and work. Hope you enjoy!

      Did I miss something? R u guys getting a new LTV rig? Or did u just go to Winkler for sightseeing? In Feb. I don’t think so. Can’t go wrong with LTV. We have a pleasureway sprinter but almost went for an LTV. Awesome build quality. And u get Dean as a new BFF. I’d like to go for a beer with him, only not in Winkler. Last I heard it was a dry town..

        Ahhh… Canada in February… lol.
        Nope, not taking delivery. Just doing our thing.
        You’re totally right about Dean though. Great guy. Don’t know about the dry town in Winkler. It all seemed pretty normal, but we didn’t really check that out. And maybe our sense of normal is a bit skewed from living in Utah!
        And yes, LTV is known for their build quality – deservedly so. Although, if you picked yourself up a Pleasure-Way, you didn’t do too badly there either!

          U still got ur eye on a Promaster diesel, camperize it urself? I’d watch u every step of the way. Go for it, maybe start a new co.

          Glad you’re on board! Convincing Stef that’s a good idea, however, will be a little bit tougher. 🙂

      You guys are in Mennonite country. Maybe you can look around for local treats. We once picked up a jar of canned peaches from an Amish store where they added a whole vanilla bean. it was really awesome and I regret only buying one jar.
