If you have air brakes be sure you understand Canadian laws - you may need a CDL.

Here's hoping for a wonderful time!

In British Columbia, Canada if driving a rv you just to have an add on to your driver license. Check it out, not sure about international driver license.
Good luck on your adventure.

Thanks for the heads up Gordon. But a quick look HERE doesn't seem to support that. I will be sure to keep looking. I know I've never had any endorsement to my NY DL before while driving through Eastern Canada - I've never been through BC.

No air brakes. But I do have air ride on the tag axle.
