Spend more time outdoors this summer in a 2022 Coachmen Apex Ultra Lite 215RBK from Vernon Recreational Products in BC. This 25-foot unit features several exterior amenities to enhance your time at the campsite and make more memories with your friends and family.
A key highlight of the 2022 Apex Ultra Lite is its outdoor kitchen, which is the perfect place to prepare easy meals and snacks. It features a mini-fridge for beverage storage and a drawer to keep utensils, napkins and grilling equipment. A single sink proves handy for quick clean-ups, and there is an overhead cabinet to store outdoor dishware. The cooktop also extends from the camp kitchen to whip up a hearty breakfast of eggs and bacon.
The 2022 Apex Ultra Lite 215RBK features a power awning with LED lights where you can sit outside to enjoy music on the AM/FM stereo with Bluetooth and exterior speakers. This unit includes a hot/cold outside shower, as well, to keep dirt and sand from entering the RV.
The 2022 Gulf Stream Envision Limited Edition 24RBS, in comparison, is lacking when it comes to exterior features. Unlike the Coachmen, this comparably-sized travel trailer doesn’t have an outdoor kitchen or shower. To gain outdoor speakers, you have to select the Envision Power Package when it comes standard on the 215RBK.

The 2022 Coachmen Apex Nano 208BHS – available from Vernon Recreational Products in BC – is a popular choice for big families with its efficient layout and room for seven guests. Comparable trailers, like the 2022 Airstream Flying Cloud 23CB, simply can’t compete, even though it shares similar specs, including a 6,000-lb gross weight and an overall length less than 25 feet.
A key advantage of the 2022 Apex Nano 208BHS is its rear bunkhouse with double-over double beds. Four people can sleep comfortably in this area, and the lower bunk also flips up to accommodate storage when travelling to your destination. There is also a front queen bedroom with dual wardrobes for parents. The 2022 Flying Cloud 23CB, on the other hand, features a rear corner double-sized bed with a bunk over top. It doesn’t compare in terms of privacy or space, like the Apex Nano.
Additionally, the 208BHS comes with a large slide, which houses the dinette bench that converts into a bed. With the slide extended, there is ample floor space to move around the trailer. It also ensures that the family chef doesn’t feel cramped in the kitchen while creating delicious meals. Unfortunately, the Airstream’s retro design and body style do not lend themselves to an interior slide.

If you’re shopping for a travel trailer measuring less than 30 feet in length, the 2022 Coachmen Apex 251RBK – available from Vernon Recreational Products in BC – and the 2022 Airstream International 27FB are likely on your list. Both models provide accommodations for four guests with a queen bed and a booth dinette that converts into a sleeping space for two. However, the Coachmen RV excels with its large slide that houses the kitchen and sofa, extending the trailer’s interior space.
Whether travelling alone or with friends, it’s nice to have room to move around without feeling confined. In the 2022 Apex 251RBK, one or two people can prepare meals in the kitchen while other guests can enjoy a game of cards at the dinette or watch tv on the sofa. The Airstream is not equipped with a slide, which makes for tight quarters in the main living area.
The Apex 251RBK’s floor plan also features a rear bathroom with a corner shower, toilet, vanity and a wardrobe for extra storage. Everything needed to freshen up after a day outdoors is in one space. The Airstream, on the other hand, has similar amenities, except the shower is separate from the water closet, which doesn’t impart much privacy.

Is the open road calling your name? Travelling by RV is an excellent way for young families to experience more of BC. The 2022 Coachmen Freedom Express 29SE – available from Vernon Recreational Products – is a superior model with a roomy layout and convenient amenities designed for large groups.
With space for nine people, the 2022 Freedom Express 29SE makes it possible for many guests – like grandma and grandpa – to join in on the fun. Children will love sleeping in the two sets of rear double bunks with a wardrobe and countertop to store their clothing and toys, while Mom and Dad can relax in the front queen bedroom with dual entry doors and two closets. The full bathroom, which is located near the bunks, also comes equipped with a combination tub/shower to easily bathe little ones after a day outdoors.
A comparative travel trailer is the 2022 Dutchmen Kodiak Ultra-Lite. This model sleeps nine or 10 guests with a similar layout as the Coachmen, except it does lack a few conveniences. The bathroom features a standard shower, but unlike the Freedom Express, it does not include a tub/shower combo, making it more difficult to clean up young children at the end of the day. The walk-through bathroom is also shared with the front queen bedroom, which can disturb parents while they are trying to sleep in.

The 2022 Coachmen Apex Ultra Lite (available at Vernon Recreational Products) promises more than interior space for BC families. This dual-axle 27-foot travel trailer delivers incredible storage capacity and water hauling abilities, allowing camping enthusiasts to savour the outdoor experience for longer.
The 245BHS floor plan features a dry weight of 4,584 lbs and maximum cargo weight of 1,916 lbs. This provides plenty of bandwidth for travellers to pack essentials for a great getaway, whether recreational equipment, camping gear or beach toys and floats. The 2022 Venture RV Sonic SN211VDB, on the other hand, is a comparable 27-foot travel trailer in terms of dry weight (4,600 lbs to be exact); however, this model maxes out at 1,290 lbs of cargo weight, which limits how many belongings you can stow.
If you enjoy boondocking in scenic parts of BC, the 2022 Apex Ultra Lite is the better choice. The 245BHS boasts a 50-gallon fresh water capacity versus Sonic’s 39-gallon limit. You also get 35-gallon grey and black water capacities in the Coachmen model instead of 30 gallons each in the Venture. Tank capacity is essential to ensure your water hauling and disposal needs are covered when staying in remote locales.

If you’re looking for a single-axel travel trailer to pull with an SUV or one-ton truck in BC, the 2022 Coachmen Apex Nano 194BHS (available from Vernon Recreational Products) and the 2022 CrossRoads Sunset Trail SS186BH are likely on your list. Both RVs feature a gross weight of fewer than 5,000 lbs and a 22-foot length. However, the Coachmen excels when it comes to interior space and amenities.
A key feature of the 2022 Apex Nano is a large interior slide that houses a booth dinette that converts into a sleeping space for one person. When the slide is open, the cabin reveals plenty of floor space to work in the kitchen and maneuver around. Kids also love this area to spread out and play on the floor. The 2022 Sunset Trail does not include a slide, limiting the square footage inside the cabin.
Another standard amenity that you’ll find in the 2022 Apex Nano 194BHS is a fully equipped exterior camp kitchen with a cooktop and fridge to whip up hearty meals while outdoors. The 2022 Sunset Trail SS186BH, on the other hand, only provides an available exterior refrigerator – the rest is up for you to supply.

Are you shopping for an RV that can accommodate your whole family with towing by a conventional half-ton truck? The 2022 Coachmen Apex 256BHS – available from Vernon Recreational Products in BC – and the 2022 Highland Ridge Range Lite RL242RL have a gross weight under 8,000 lbs. However, the Apex is better suited for big groups that prefer to explore in comfort.
The main difference between the Apex 256BHS and the Range Lite RL242RL is sleeping capacity. The Coachmen model can accommodate six guests with the front queen mattress, rear bunks, booth dinette that converts into a bed and a sofa. The Highland Ridge, on the other hand, can only lodge four people comfortably with its rear tri-fold sofa, queen mattress and convertible booth dinette.
The Coachmen Apex also has a more functional floor plan suited to families. The rear bathroom provides extra privacy and is close to the bunks where children often sleep. Additionally, the primary bedroom shares a wall with the kitchen and is fully enclosed with a door, making it the perfect retreat for a restful sleep. Comparatively, the Highland Ridge Range Lite features a dual entry bathroom that leads directly into the front queen bedroom, which isn’t ideal when travelling with friends or family.
Enjoy weight savings without skimping on features and space in the 2022 Apex 256BHS. Stop into Vernon Recreational Products in BC to tour this Coachmen model or inquire about availability, pricing and financing.

If you’re looking for a travel trailer measuring under 25 feet in length, the 2022 Coachmen Freedom Express 20SE – available from Vernon Recreational Products in BC – and the 2022 Prime Time RV Avenger 20RD are likely on your list. Both models have the dimensions you desire, but the Coachmen model packs more features into its footprint.
Whether you take long or short trips, you can never have enough storage inside an RV. The Freedom Express 20SE excels in this regard by providing an exterior pass-through storage area in the heated and enclosed underbelly, which is a great place to keep extra camping gear, lawn chairs and toys. The Avenger 20RD, on the other hand, does not provide pass-through storage. Instead, it offers under-bed storage inside the trailer, which is not ideal for stowing messy outdoor equipment.
With the Coachmen RV, you also benefit from larger storage tanks to keep up with your water carrying and disposal needs. With the Freedom Express, fresh water capacity is 50 gallons, while the Avenger is only 42 gallons. The Prime Time RV’s grey and black water tanks are also smaller.
Additionally, you will have to forego certain conveniences by choosing the Avenger 20RD. This model does not include a TV as a standard or optional feature, while the Freedom Express 20SE comes equipped with a 32-inch TV with a pantry below it to store dry goods and snacks.

If you’re shopping for a lightweight truck camper to take on lengthy road trips, stop into Vernon Recreational Products in BC to tour the 2022 Bigfoot 9.4LB. This 16-ft 6-in model is designed for long-bed trucks and comes standard with several home comforts to enhance cross-country journeys.
You’ll enjoy preparing healthy meals in the 9.4LB floor plan. This model boasts a workable kitchen with a three-burner cooktop and a microwave oven to whip up a hot breakfast each day. A double-bowl stainless steel sink makes for easy clean-ups, while the six-cubic foot fridge can hold plenty of groceries to extend visits into town. There is also a comfortable dinette to enjoy your meals when it’s not converted into a bed for extra sleeping space.
The 2022 nuCamp RV Cirrus 820 is comparative to the Bigfoot 9.4LB in terms of overall length and dry weight. However, it trails behind in terms of interior features for extended trips. With this model, you get a stovetop and a microwave, but you’ll have to rely on coolers and ice to keep your perishables fresh. The Cirrus 820 also features a single-bowl sink, which is not ideal for washing pots and pans.

Does your bucket list for 2022 include dry camping without hookups? You’ll want to check out the Bigfoot 25RQ travel trailer from Vernon Recreational Products. This model provides generous water holding tanks and optional features that make boondocking easier and more convenient for BC adventurers.
The 2022 Bigfoot 25RQ is constructed with R8 1.5-inch high-density EPS insulation and thermal pane windows to keep the camper at a comfortable temperature in warm and cold weather. The fresh, grey and black water tanks also boast 45-gallon capacities so that your water carrying and disposal needs are assured. With two propane tanks with auto changeover and an optional solar energy system, this Bigfoot RV is well-suited for off-grid living.
The 2022 Autumn Ridge 21FB, on the other hand, is a comparable travel trailer, but it’s not ideal for dry camping. To start, this model offers modest water capacity since the grey and black tanks hold a mere 32.5 gallons each. Starcraft also does not offer an available solar energy system, which limits this RV’s boondocking potential. When you’re out in the wilderness, conveniences like these are not only nice to have – they are essential.
