RE: Looking for owners Manual for Vanguard 5th Wheel

We have a Kodiak fifth wheel, also made by Peak Manufacturing. It is a similar vintage and similar size to the Vanguard you are looking for. I could scan a page or two from the manual if there is something specific you are looking for or, alternatively, I can look up something specific for you. The manual mostly deals with winterizing, safety checks, etc. while all the appliances and attachments have their own manuals in the package which came with the unit. PM me if I can help.

RE: Rain Gear

We always have an umbrella in the trailer for walking around in camp grounds and often I carry a small umbrella in my pack for short hikes. I prefer that to walking with a hood up on my light rain jacket. We also carry light rain paints when hiking but would never use them in campgrounds since we prefer being inside with the heat turned on if the weather is that bad:) Umbrellas are useless in the wind but most of the time they are very handy.

RE: Best route to Kimberley BC.

Make the decision based on weather if possible. Check the Drive BC website before leaving. Given similar weather on both routes Hwy 95 through Kootenay Park has much longer and steeper hills than does the Crowsnest though that may not bother a professional. 95 also has much higher passes than does the Crowsnest so there may be more accumulated snow. The drawback of the Crowsnest can be very strong winds getting down to #3 from Calgary and the possibility of blowing snow and very bad visibility in the pass area. We have towed both routes many times but not in winter.

RE: Another question about Banff to Jasper

I agree with those who suggest the Lake Louise area has a greater number of spectacular things to see but we prefer Jasper to Banff townsites. Be sure to take your toad up the paved road to Takakaw falls in Yoho park while camped at Lake Louise(power available here) or perhaps while camped in Yoho park itself (no power) and be sure to walk to one of the teahouses at Lake Louise (Agnes lake teahouse is an easier hike while the Plain of Six glaciers teahouse offers broader views) as well as doing the walk along Morraine lake. Both the Morraine lake and the Lake Louise parking fill up early so plan for that. While at the Icefields the Parker's ridge trail is nearby and offers spectacular scenery as does the Wilcox pass trail. From Jasper (assuming you get a camp site here) the drive to Mount Edith Cavell and a walk along the trail there is worthwhile as is the drive to Maligne lake.

RE: Canadian Rockies summer 2020

You could start by looking up campgrounds on the Canadian National Parks website. National Parks you could explore during your trip if starting in the PNW would be Waterton (hiking seriously effected by wildfires last year), Kootenay (the Rockwall is an excellent backpack which goes over several high passes above the tree line), Banff (busy but some nice hiking), Yoho (in my opinion the best day hiking National Park), Glacier (smaller, hikes are more demanding due to steep trails), and Jasper. Many nice hikes along the Icefields Parkway between Lake Louise and Jasper. AN additional couple of hiking destinations would be Assiniboine Provincial Park and both Height of the Rockies and Top of the World provincial parks. The Top of the world is easier to access though it is possible to helicopter in to Assiniboine if you don't have time for the full day hike in. You can PM me if you want more hiking information.
