What to do in Winkler when taking delivery of your LTV

If you’re a soon-to-be Leisure Travel Van owner making the trip to Winkler, Manitoba, might be high on your list of places to visit.

One of the options you have when purchasing a new LTV is to take delivery and PDI at the factory in Winkler. This is an option we highly recommend. In addition to the opportunity to tour the factory, you will also get to know your new coach from those who know the most about it themselves.

But what ELSE is there to do in Winkler? We know it’s a small town, but if you’ve traveled all the way there from say, Arizona, you might want to stay a while and check things out. We decided we needed to answer this question for ourselves, so we spent a (very) full day in Winkler to find out.

We’re happy to report, we were not disappointed!

We started early and finished late, and in-between, got a good taste of what Winkler has to offer. What we found included a variety of urban (coffee shops, theater company) and rural (agricultural museum) attractions. There ought to be something in Winkler to occupy any sort of RVer. Here are a few of our favorites:

Being in Canada there are always, of course, my stand-bys: Tim Hortons and Canadian Tire. I love them both dearly, and could spend hours at either one. Strangely, Stef doesn’t seem to share my enthusiasm for these Canadian icons. That’s her loss – more donuts for me.

When we finally settled in for the night, we were bushed! We found more than enough to keep us busy for several days; and yet we had tried to cram it all into one. That’s pretty typical for us, but it doesn’t have to be for you.  If you find yourselves headed to Winkler to take factory delivery of your new Leisure Travel Van, plan to take an extra day or two checking out Winkler.  You’ll find there’s something in this small town for everyone to enjoy.
