Year-over-year Canadian motorhome sales declined 21.2 percent in June while registrations rose 2.7 percent for the six months. Statistical Surveys Inc. (SSI) reported that data for the provinces of British Columbia and Ontario are incomplete.

June Class A registrations fell 22.8 percent from the year prior and 1.5 percent year-to-date. Thor was No. 1 in the category for the first six months with a 23.1 percent market share, ahead of Fleetwood RV Inc. (15.7 percent) and Winnebago (14.8 percent).

In the Class C segment, sales dropped 19.9 percent for June but were up 6.4 percent for the six months. Forest River held the No. 1 spot year-to-date with a 35.9 percent market share followed by Thor (23.1 percent) and Winnebago (13.4 percent).


When Paul Pinard first decided to join the Good Sam Club he was interested in their discounts for camping with his recreation vehicle (RV). But as he looked further into the Club, he discovered that they have a lot to offer RV owners. After being a member for so many years now he’s been rewarded with a lifetime membership, Pinard and a group of Sam Club members have created a local branch of the club for the Boundary, British Columbia region.

Since the Kettle River covers the region, Pinard’s group decided on the name Kettle River Ramblers. Their first meeting was on held Nov. 26, 2009. They organized their rules and bylaws and got the chapter going. Then they invited all Good Sam members in the area to get together on Jan. 24. Sixteen rigs, mostly from Midway and Grand Forks, come out for that meeting. “We’re hoping that people from Greenwood, Rock Creek will join as we grow and get better known,” said Pinard. Their goal is to bring the group up to 30 members.

On Mar. 7 the club had a planning meeting to discuss options for activities for the year. Chapters get together to design an annual plan for members for camping and attending different events. The plan can include short and long trips to different areas, and opportunities to attend the larger Samborees across the continent. There’s no obligation to attend the events, and no minimum number for the trip to be a go either.
