The Vancouver and Lower Mainland recreational vehicle rental and sales industry got a big boost with a recently announced partnership with Fraserway RV.
Fraserway RV and US-based East to West RV announced a national partnership in September 2022 which will see an investment of $100 million in the Canadian recreational vehicle industry. What does this mean for folks here in the Lower Mainland? It’ll mean lots of great new inventory and selection for people wanting to buy and rent campers, motorhomes and other recreational vehicles!
Also, to celebrate, Fraserway RV is gave away an East to West Alta Travel Trailer valued at $62,000!
Fraserway RV and East to West Partnership
The recreational vehicle rental market is going to get a whole lot better in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland with a new national partnership between Fraserway RV and US-based East to West RV.
On September 9th the two companies announced a national partnership which will see an investment of $100 million in product across Canada in the coming years.
Fraserway RV is one of the best places to buy and rent recreational vehicles in Canada. In the Lower Mainland they have locations at 747 Cliveden Place in Delta and 30440 South Fraser Way in Abbotsford. In BC they also have locations in Kamloops, Kelowna and Prince George.
Fraserway makes many of their own vehicles (one of which we used once and had an amazing time – see Our Getaway Camping Vacation in a Rental RV to learn about that trip). East to West RV, meanwhile, is an RV manufacturing company based in Elkhart Indiana. They also make exceptional recreation vehicles. Between the two companies, if you use one of their products, expect to make exceptional memories while experiencing some wonderfully pampered camping!
East to West RV makes a number of brands that are well known in the United States, but until now not so common here in Canada. East to West’s brands include Ahara, Alta, Della Terra, Silver Lake, Tandara and Entrada.
Fraserway & East to West Partnership Launch
On September 9th, 2022, Fraserway hosted a special event at their Abbotsford location to officially launch their new partnership with East to West RV. We attended. At the event they talked about the new partnership. They also had a barbecue for guests and staff, and extra special deals for customers. In their showroom they had a number of new East to West RV trailers for people to explore. Wow are those trailers ever nice!
East to West Prize RV Video
To see what a 2022 East to West Alta 2810KIK Travel Trailer looks like, check out the following video. It’s the recreational vehicle that Fraserway RV is giving away in October of 2022. As you can see, it’s a beautiful product! And it’s not a bottom-of-the-line model (although even East to West’s most basic models are still quite luxurious).
In this video you’ll see the trailer from the outside as well as inside in the main living and kitchen areas. Not shown in the video is the bathroom and bedroom (both of which are very nice too).
RV-Ing in the Lower Mainland
One of the best ways to explore the Lower Mainland (and the rest of BC) is by recreational vehicle. Using a new Fraserway RV or East to West RV makes camping in the outdoors a luxury experience!
Over the past couple of years the demand for RV rentals has been through the roof. More people than ever have wanted to buy and rent vehicles. Suppliers haven’t been able to keep up with demand and rental vehicles have been hard to come by. With Fraserway’s new partnership with East to West, the influx of new vehicles to the region will definitely help and offer much needed relief!
We’ve been camping in recreational vehicles before and love them! We’ve borrowed an old camper from family and had a great time. We also took a rental vehicle from Fraserway RV on a camping trip a couple of years ago and oh wow was that ever nice! We hope to do that again soon! It makes going back to a tent or older camper so difficult. When we are ready to retire, we’ll definitely be looking for a nice RV. And in the meantime, renting a really nice one is a great option. They are so worth it!
