About Donald Cudmore
I have a lifetime love of camping and RV's. My wife and I have 3 teenagers. As a young child, my family had a series of VW Westphalia campers, including the model that had the adjoining tent. A favourite VW trip was across Canada from Halifax to Victoria and then down the west coast to Los Angeles. Later, we graduated to Winnebago's, and our fondest family memories were of regular non-stop driving trips from Halifax to Florida including a visit to Disney World the first year it opened, and later the Fort Wilderness campground in the first year it opened. Later, we had a converted van (Campwagon, built in Quebec) which had a more efficient layout than the big Winnebago. On the camping side, I was Boy Scout for many years and enjoyed any kind of tenting. When my own children were small, we car camped with a large Eureka Bon Echo tent which kept us dry and comfortable for many years. It was a high quality tent and it is still as good as new even after 10 years of use. My interest in having my own RV and renting it came from terrific experiences I’ve had over the past 5 years renting other people’s RV’s. First we rented a restored 1975 VW van in Florida (Crazy Karl) so I could give my kids a sense of the VW camper experiences that I had as a kid. Then we had a wonderful trip in an Escape Campervan from Las Vegas through the Mojave desert to LA to Malibu and back through the Death Valley. This was the first time that we had camped with an RV that had the kitchen at the back and a James Baroud rooftop tent on top, and we discovered that we really liked both features. And, then last year, we rented a large motorhome from Outdoorsy in Victoria, which we used for a trip to Tofino, and gave our kids a Winnebago-style trip. In choosing our own version of a “modular motor home”, we opted to use the innovative Intech Luna as a very comfortable, well-made, lightweight trailer that would fit in our carport. The combination of the fancy kitchen and big beautiful front window was very attractive to us. By adding a rooftop tent to our tow vehicle we gained the ability to house our whole family, but in a way that the adults and kids get to sleep in different places. And, depending on the type of trip we are doing and how many people are going, sometimes we just need the trailer and sometimes we just need the rooftop tent. In both cases we chose top of the line products. And, to make it cost effective, we are renting them out on Outdoorsy. The great thing about our modular motor home is that whenever they aren’t rented we use them to get out of the city and explore the countryside. Along the way we’ve seen more of Ontario in the past year than we’d seen in the previous 20. We are blessed with stunning national and provincial parks. Now we get to see a lot more of them!
