Well we survived our maiden voyage with our trailer. I was thinking closer to the date that we were going, that it was a bit ambitious of us to go so far away and take a ferry and stay at 4 different locations on our first trip! The RV place had issues getting the hitch on our van, which cost us more time and money, but with one full day to spare, we hitched up for the first time and Greg had to do some practice driving in the nearby parking lot! We pulled out and went to Cultus Lake (2 nights), Victoria (3 nights), Parksville (4 nights), and then Richmond (2 nights). We had lots of adventures and many good times by the ocean.
