Just wanted to add my 2¢ about all the stuff the province of Quebec asks of a RV. In the SAAQ thing, it also says that the RV is a permanent residence
So if you're more going the campervan way, I don't think you actually need all that. If you think about the Westfalias, Safari condo and such, they don't have propane, shower, etc.
The seatbelts thing is a problem though... But! If you're going the campervan way instead of the full RV, I think you can buy used seats. I wrote to SAAQ today asking some question. I'll share the info as soon as I get an answer.
Also, I'd love to pool the info with you and the other person from Quebec, but I can't write pm yet (not a trusted member...), so you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
if you with so!
Good luck with all that! I'll keep following your thread!
BTW, I found two 2000 Ford E350 with the 7.3L powerstroke for 1800$ in Ontario in you'd like to have a link to that!
