Ventura-ing in Winnipeg!

Hi! I'm The new owner of a 13ft Ventura, year unknown. Just picked it up this weekend and M ridiculously happy about it! . It is the perfect size for me to get away weekends. I'm looking forward to learning about this camper in your documents section.

No major refurbishing planned. Just freshening up and decorating the interior which appears to be in good condition. Definitely do something interesting on the neglected exterior (hmm, is it better to paint or use wraps/decals??).

Have much to learn about campers and such, starting with getting the proper hitch on my SUV, then how to drive with it attached! It may take some time, but I'll figure it out.

Welcome

Welcome to the FG and Ventura communities.
You will find lots of great information and inspiration on these forums.
Check out the notice for the FG gathering at St. Malo in August.
I am another new (since May) Ventura owner in your area and there are a few others, I think, and more across the prairies.
Where did you find your trailer?

No Adrian, my trailer is not in camping condition yet. I have a lot to do before I can get it on the road. I will be going to the gathering in St. Malo on the Saturday but just to see other trailers amnd meet owners. Maybe next year I will be there with mine.

Nice find. Had you been looking for a trailer? Good for you for acting quickly.
It looks like in good shape and there are still a lot of the original features on the outside. What about the inside?
