Hi, we are from Vancouver BC, the not so white North. For those of you that are from the south, Vancouver weather is identical to Seattle, Wa. My wife and I have been enjoying our 2007 Aliner Expedition since 2010. We bought it used in Portland in early 2010. It's been a great traveler and we have put tens of thousands of kilometers on it, mostly going down into California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah and Oregon. The Aliner is a practical and sensible travel trailer and because of its low profile it fits into the parkade at work, perfect!
