Camping south of Kelowna

08 November 2020

First trip out with our new (to us) Hymer GT550 trailer.

This trailer is approximately 15 feet long and ~2500lbs. The roof pops up in camp, and folds down for transport and garage entry. We had it lifted with a new axle, extended the tongue (via a folding tongue mount), added a front strorage platform with tie-downs, converted from a single 20lb propane tank to two 30lb propane tanks, and made other small modifications inside.

Waking up on day two we found a sprinkling of snow. The snowfall continued through the day, and into the night.

By morning of day three we had considerably more snow on the ground, with even more in the forecast. Not wanting to get stuck on a remote lake some 40km from the nearest paved road, we headed back home.

We were breaking trail the entire 40km to the highway without any issues!
