    Nice article! We’ve just purchased a 1986 Starcraft and can’t wait to go out. Couple of questions about “Harvest Hosts” the site states you have to have a toilet, and inside cooking facilities. Did your van have that? Ours doesn’t and does it actually matter?

      We’ve got a portable gas stove and portable toilet. Personally, I don’t think it’s a huge issue but it varies between harvest hosts! You can find a portable gas stove or portable toilet at Canadian Tire or online and it won’t cost you much.

    Not having a home address used as your base in canada and province, how do you solve your provincial health care plan, provinces require a home address to be eligible. Can you solve this by having a P.O. Box? Thank you

      Initially, we used our friend’s address to get the mail, but you can also rent a mailbox at the Canada post office.
