RV Traveller's Guide for a Successful Experience
March 1, 2021News
Terego offers hundreds of agri-tourism or heritage sites in several Canadian provinces. These local producers are committed to receiving you freely, allowing you to park on their private property for one night, all while performing their daily work.
Unlike traditional camping trips, where you can claim your rights as a guest because you pay a right to stay, you will be privileged hosts, and find hospitality and friendliness, on the sole condition of meeting the commitments to producers to which you have subscribed:
Producers do not offer any electricity, water or dumping services. You cannot fill the water tank at the producers' properties. It is strictly forbidden to empty your toilet in your host's toilet and the dumping of any gray water is prohibited.
- You cannot detach your trailer from the vehicle, unless your host has allowed it. The spirit of Terego is to allow a memorable experience for visiting the producers, not to install your trailer and then leave to visit the surrounding areas, as would be done at a traditional campsite.
- You cannot use a generator without permission from your host. This rule aims to ensure the tranquility of the place for both your hosts, their customers, their neighborhood and other travellers present.
You must keep the premises clean and in good condition. You must not start a fire or leave your waste behind.
- You must get permission from your host to use a barbecue on their property. It is rare for a producer to prohibit it, but sometimes they will ask you to respect certain hours based on their guests.
- You must be careful not to damage your host's terrain, including when the use of leveling feet is required.
If it is stated that animals are not allowed at a producer's property, you cannot book a stop here if you are travelling with a dog. In addition, when pets are accepted, your pet must always be kept on a leash, no matter how obedient.
- On the producer's file, we indicate the maximum permitted arrival time. If you are unable to arrive before the indicated time, you must contact your host to ask if you can arrive later. If so, they will be able to tell you where to park if they cannot be present upon your late arrival. In addition, if you arrive at a producer's property before the maximum arrival time and there is nobody on the premises, check if your host has left a note for you on the door. If not, call them. Their phone number is written on the confirmation email.
You should avoid reserving parking spaces "just in case". This is detrimental to the smooth running of the network and deprives other members of the reserved space unnecessarily, as well as depriving the producer of possible revenues. You should reserve your parking spaces when you are actually planning to go.
- If you are unable to visit the producer, you MUST cancel your reservation on the website AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. This will inform the producer and free the parking for other members. In case the cancellation is made the same day as the scheduled stop, it is courteous and respectful to also call the producer to notify them.
- You must never visit a producer and ask for parking for a night stop without making a reservation in advance on the website.
You must reserve parking spaces for the length that suits your RV. In the case of trailers, you must take into account the total length of the trailer + pulling vehicle.
Finally, as a courtesy, go to meet your host, take an interest in their work. Always signal your departure. Your host is busy or absent? A little written word will always make them happy...
Encourage your host by visiting the shop. It's a simple and elegant way of thanking them for having welcomed you and for making sure they stay in the network and welcome RV travellers for a long time.
Remember...you are on vacation, your hosts are working!
