 Bon Jour! We attend a French-speaking RV rally in Quebec

The RV Lifestyle is the same, no matter where you live and what language you speak.

We just attended a Leisure Travel Vans club rally near Montreal, Quebec in which we were the only ones who didn't speak French.

They provided a translator when we spoke to the group, but as the weekend went on we found that most spoke enough English to communicate with us. We had a ball.

The owners group camped at a municipal park on the banks of the Ottawa River. There were no hookups. Everyone boondocked. There were 83 rigs there, all parked in precise rows. Dheck out the drone shot in the video below.

At one point, we had two dozen people waiting for a tour of our 2019 Unity FX. We were the only ones there with the new Mercedes Sprinter chassis, so there was lots of interest.

And we got lots of tours of how the others personalized their own units, with special customizations and storage options.

Check out the video below. And I want to give a special shout out to Jean-François Trépanier, president of the club, for inviting us. The rally was one of the best-organized events we have ever attended. From the food to the seminars to the social times, Jean-Francois and his team really know how to organize an RV rally.

We also want to thank Claude, for serving as our translator for the weekend, and Denis for the tour of his Unity corner Bed model and the door-protecting strap he installed on our unit.

  • Merci Mike and Jennife!

    Wonderful coverage of LTV Québec’s 2019 rally. Next year will be our fifth year rally. We already started thinking about the program.

  • […] its hilltop châteaus and charming old-world-style streets, Quebec City is a worthy road trip, but it’s even better as a jumping-off point for a 450-mile […]
