Yep you have to make the trip out East my friend from N.B. to P.E.I. to Newf you'll love every klick'O'meter.

Do you know of any RE hitch examples you could send my way? That would be awesome!

So your rig is completed? Maybe this summer we can meet up and talk shop? I'm game for any help and advice to make this journey as problem free as I can.

Thanks,

Been east, just not the rock....my newfie contacts here guess it would be 700-900 bucks each way on the ferry. I believe they charge by the foot & weight.


I can't help as far as the hitch goes....it's been brought up a few times, I myself haven't seen one on here. That doesn't mean it hasn't been done.

No, rig's not done...very close. I got mine July 2015 and figured I have it finished by the end of July 2016[stored for winter]. Still got a ways to go and I'm only building a 40 foot tin tube tent for camping and two ATV'S. No real hydro, plumbing, heat, ac, etc... If you think it'll take you two years, count on 3-4, just sayin', lol.

Check out Vlad's build.

Hey Redd,

I've attached the rates for crossing to The Rock. (Canadian Dollars)

I can only hope that with a little help from friend's it doesn't take longer than 2 years

While I was thinking about the plumbing for a Kit/Bath set up I thought would it be possible to use the grey water to flush the toilet with? Why use fresh water when you have a whole tank of grey water that just gets dumped anyways. Has anyone done this before?

Every time we drive to Newf we take the night crossing with the birth so we can sleep while crossing at night, between 6 & 7 hours. Day time is much harder to fall asleep, for me anyways. Then you hit the road early next morning refreshed with daylight to drive around the Island. Something to think about.

No idea about your "gray water/black water dump" question, but wondered the same thing myself. I think that if you moved the question to the section about plumbing, water, etc. you might get more response. My guess is that it could be done if you could, properly, separate the liquids from all the other "goodness" in the gray water.
I didn't want anyone thinking I was hijacking your post, or I would have done it.
