The addition of side flares was a running change to the specs which was a pleasant surprise as you don't often see them on standard roof models. In fact, I combed through Google Images but couldn't find another example. Sideways sleeping will give us more interior space, and that's a good thing!

Four more sleeps until we take delivery! Flying out tomorrow am and will enjoy our anniversary celebrations at the Chateau Laurier before Daniel from Travois picks us up Monday morning. We are thrilled to have Webasto's diesel-burning Evo 6 water heater/furnace unit and their X100 cooktop.

Following this on Tuesday we are going to connect with the great people at Cornwall Freightliner for a familiarization session on the Sprinter's mechanicals and systems. Then begins the long drive home.

Aside from visiting a few relatives along the way, one stop I'm insisting on is at Rouleau, Saskatchewan. Anyone else a fan?

Sorry for the delay in reporting back to those who are following our story, but as of now we don’t have our van yet. Received an email at the airport between flights to Ottawa that they wouldn’t be able to meet our delivery date, mostly due to their evolving specs and the extra time required to sort the changes. Too late to turn back so we proceeded onwards and took advantage of a Travois loaner to have a mini holiday in Ontario, visiting a few relatives along the way. It appears we should have delivery in a couple of days now, so we’ll wait it out in a hotel.

Although there was initial disappointment at the delay, the improvements done by Travois to the Conestoga pop-top package seem beneficial for the long run. Plus the week spent driving and camping in their bright red pop-top 4x4 Sprinter has been a valuable learning experience. Fingers crossed that all goes well and we get a well-sorted van in a couple of days. Our first official trip will follow to Alaska and Yukon shortly after our return home.

Disappointing, but based on my SMB experiences: I’d prefer an honest delay in completion versus a rushed attempt that causes problems long run.

Hoping they complete it and deliver it in top condition.
