2015 Reader’s Choice Awards

Welcome to the 2015 RVwest Reader's Choice Awards.

Once again, we have surveyed our readers, a keen group of RVers if ever there was one, to determine their favourites in both Canada and the United States. From destinations to dealerships, events to attractions, this list is  a great starting point if you're wanting ideas for future travels.

Arizona, California and Nevada are perennially popular snowbirding spots, but a number of new destinations showed up on the 2015 list. Our readers have made suggestions for choice places to point your RV in states as far north as Alaska and as far south as Georgia. Montana, Utah, Oregon, Idaho and Wyoming also make an appearance on this year's list.
In Canada, Yukon in the north and the western provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba all attract avid RVers.
Happy travelling!
