Rod Siemens, general manager at O’Connor RV in Chilliwack, invites you to drop by and check out the broad selection of new and used models in stock. Your new summer holiday ride may be waiting for you.

Time to hit the highway? RVing could be your ticket to freedom

The team at O’Connor RV in Chilliwack can help you prepare for summer

With warmer weather starting to take hold and holiday ideas being considered, have you nailed down how you’re going to spend that summer vacation?

If you like the idea of hitting the open road and getting out of the city, while enjoying the flexibility of stopping when you want to see points of interest, you may want to consider the options recreational vehicles offer.

“RVing is still the most inexpensive way to travel and holiday,” says Rod Siemens, general manager of O’Connor RV in Chilliwack.

Looking to make a return to camping?

An industry veteran who’s helped many families into their first RV and others into newer models, Siemens is seeing a trend toward younger families getting back into camping and RVing. Their approach is generally different than that of retirees going on cross country treks, he adds.

“They’re not going quite as far; they might go to Alberta or the northern U.S.,” he says. “But it’s nice to see them getting away and experiencing trips like this with their own families.”

Find savings on new units, great deals on used

As many of the current new units were purchased by the O’Connor RV when the Canadian loonie was higher against the U.S. dollar, there’s potential savings to be found over new RVs more recently brought in. If you’re looking to update your RV, now is a good time to check out the selection: ask about remaining 2018sor early 2019 models! If you’re unsure about what size of unit might be right for you or what’s available, try browsing by class of RV on O’Connor RV’s website, simply look for the “Browse Our RV’s” row near the top of the page.

Booking ahead always a good idea

Many RV owners will be looking to get their units serviced in advance of the busy RVing season, so it’s a good idea to call or book an appointment at O’Connor’s service department well ahead of your projected departure date. It makes sense before every driving holiday to check such items as your water and septic connections, propane, brakes and bearings and even window sealant.

Not only that, if you’re looking at camping this summer, experience shows that booking well ahead to get your desired dates is always a good plan, too.


You’re always welcome to come down and browse through the huge selection of new and used stock on hand at O’Connor RV, or get tips about RVing from the experienced staff, many of whom are avid campers and outdoors people. Find them on Yale Road facing Highway 1 in Chilliwack, and you can also follow them on Facebook.
