    canada question

    When going to Canada what is the best type of vehicle to rent?

    Our group is planning on Whistler for a couple/few days and then the North Shore for a couple of days. We were talking about renting a truck to get the bikes around. Is this a good idea?

    If yes, does anyone have insight on where is the best place to rent one?

    thanks

    Rent a van

    Rent something you can lock your bikes inside out of view. Theft rate is high in B.C.. Even if you are insured it can destroy tour trip.I wouldn't leave my bikes in the back of the truck no matter what they are locked to. They will either wreck the bikes trying to dismantle them or just take the truck.

    We rented a dodge extended cab pick up w/ aHEMI. Lots of fun and enough room for 4 guys w/ bike boxes and lots of gear. Theft rate is bad in BC. First day in our condo and 3 bikes got stolen out of locked coral in locked garage. We never kept our bikes outa view(bikes stayed in room-screw management). Pick up worked good for us but we didnt do shuttle runs so maybe a van will be even better. Have fun. I'll be up aug 27-July 10

    Bring big thick link chains if u plan on locking the bikes.
    I watch the O.C. cause it makes me happy...

    If misery was money i'd be the richest man on the planet.
