On May 2, 2016, I picked up my Safari Condo Alto 1743 trailer at the showroom in Levis, Quebec. I’ve learned a lot since then about Altos and about the RV life. So many people helped me get started (and continue to help and support me) so this is my way of paying it forward. Whether you’re trying to decide on a trailer or you just want to know about the life, this is the place to start.
