This page/thread will be the official information page for the 2019 Open Range RV Owners Forum Members tour through Canada and Alaska.

Any further information regarding the tour will be posted here.

Our trip is booked. We'll be the only ones on this trip starting in CouerDalene, Idaho on June 11, 2019 and ending in Anacortes, Washington on August 9,2019. Cost is $11,595 with a deposit of $1828. Juliie Mcinnis from Fantasy Tours will start calling you all (if you put your name on the interested sheet at the 2016 CHR) in the next few days to set up your deposit and get you registered for the trip. She has authorized me to give you her personal phone number if you have any questions just pm me and I'll give it to you. YES Mary and I registered this morning and now the countdown starts. If anyone is interested you can get your name on the standby list so that if anyone has to cancel you can get on. Really looking forward to this trip.Dave

It looks like Jim and Darlene Weir are going to be our wagonmasters. We have traveled a few times with them before and they are really super at what they do. Their phone numbers are Jim 360-244-1704 and Darlene is 360-244-2147. They said to pass on that if you have any questions or are ready to sign up just give them a call and they'll be glad to help you in any way they can. Thanks.Dave

If everyone would, please pm me (jarhead) and Doc once you are registered as I would like to keep track of everything as we move towards our trip. Right now we have no one on the waiting list so if you're considering going let me know. This trip is all about all of you and having a good time with as little stress or issues as possible. Thanks.Dave

I have added the additional names to the list of interested Open Range RV Owners.
If you are THINKING about going on this trip please contact Dave or me to get your name on the list.

As many of you know Elaine and I were in Canada and Alaska this summer on a land sea tour with Holland America and took the Amtrak Empire builder, Capital Limited and the Keystone Limited trains back to Lancaster, PA. We were gone for less than 3 weeks and paid 3/4 of what the approximate cost to Fantasy RV Tours will be for this 60 day trip.
You will see much more than what we did.
The White Pass Yukon Train and the Trail of 98 is the actual trail of the 1898 gold rush to the Yukon that the miners went up, in some spots it is less that 3 feet wide.

Here is a link to the web page for the 60 day tour.
http://fantasyrvtours.com/caravans/alas ... laska.html

Here are some of the TOUR features from the webpage:
• Starts and Ends in the USA
• Canadian Rocky Mountains
• Columbia Ice fields
• Banff National Park
• Top of the World Highway
• White Pass/Yukon Railroad Train Excursion - We were on this train it is a great ride, see photos below.
• Glaciers & Wildlife Cruise
• Nenana River Raft Float Trip
• Kenai Peninsula

IT STARTS HERE, IN THE GREAT NORTHWEST RESORT CITY of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. The Premier Alaska caravan travels through the majestic Canadian Rockies — where you’ll be awestruck with unimaginable vistas and the glowing waters of glacial lakes. You’ll stand atop glaciers, explore the Yukon Gold Country and enter Alaska crossing the Top of the World Highway. Surrounded by wildlife, mining camps, native, villages and fishing experiences – this is the land of the last American Frontier. Prepare yourself as we travel the rugged roads through this incredible land and experience the treasures found only in Alaska. Join us for an unforgettable experience with our professional WagonMasters and TailGunners, who take the worry out of traveling this remote region.

Our Premier Alaska vacation is unique, and we are the only company with a roundtrip itinerary that starts and ends in the US. Ready yourself for a life enriching adventure!

Start: Coeur d’Alene, ID
End: Anacortes,WA
Miles: 6,023

Doc

As were getting off the ship I had to stop and get this photo.

You can go to fantasyrvtours.com and look at the itenarary. The trip we are taking is the Premier Alaska 60 day tour. It starts with 59 nites of your campsites, many shows, meals and tours. This will be 3rd time taking this trip and it is well worth the cost. You have 2 couples, a wagonmaster and a tailgunner who are experienced and have made this trip many times. The couples I have requested for our trip I have traveled with a few times and they are very knowledgeable and experienced on this trip. There is also a link in one of the previous post that will take you to the info on the trip. Any questions just ask away.Dave

To sum it up a lot. Before we went on our Alaska trip with Fantasy I thought it was a lot of money. But after the trip I decided it was worth every penny. We saw and did so much more than if we had gone on our own. We went on three boat trips which we probably would have missed at $189 per person on the one I saw the cost of, we went to several stage shows and many tours we would have not know about. We formed friendships out of the 21 rigs on our trip at least 12 of us are going on the Canadian 49 day Eastern Providences tour. You figure 60 nights of camping at just $35 a night which I think low for there is over $2,000.

Seeing as we have had a large influx of new members I thought it would be good to bring this out again. Quick recap: we are planning an all Open Range/ Highland ridge trip to Alaska in 2019. It is a 60 day trip up and back. Fantasy RV tours will be the company that will be leading our trip. I have made this trip twice in 2012 and 2015 and am going on this one also. You can read the info in the above posts and if you have any questions ask away. This is truly a great trip. We'll be having another presentation at the Coming Home Rally in August 2017. The trip starts on June 11,2019 in Coeur Dalene,Idaho and finishes up in Anacortes,Washington on August 9, 2019.Dave

If you are attending the 2017 Coming Home Rally there will be a presentation about the tour Monday 3:30 to about 4:30 in the tent.

If you are arriving at the CHR later please contact me at the rally and I will be happy to discuss the tour with you.
If you are not able to attend the CHR you can PM me and I will get in contact with you.

Doc

There were a lot of Open Range owners that attended the 2 presentations about the 2019 Open Range RV Owners Fantasy RV Tours 60 day Alaska & Canada Tour. This tour is open to Open Range RV owners that are members of the Open Range Owners Forum.
