On July 16th, 2015, Triple E Canada celebrated its 50th Anniversary with all staff and their families. The kids enjoyed bouncy inflatables, face painting, train rides, captain bubbles, swimming, balloons, popcorn, cotton candy, freezies and a petting zoo. On display were vintage cars and a vintage line up of Triple E RV Motorhomes where everyone could walk through and explore a blast from the past.
We all enjoyed a delicious barbecued dinner accompanied by chips, ice cream, mini donuts, watermelons, cake, Tim Horton’s coffee and more.
Phil and Terry welcomed all employees and their families to the event and shared heart-felt stories from the beginnings of Triple E and how it had grown over the years. Employees shared their appreciation for being a part of such a long standing company within the community of Winkler, Manitoba. After dinner, we all gathered in the amphitheatre to catch the evenings entertainment that included Lindsay Rae Band, Bare Yogis Band and The Color with the grand finale being a huge display of fireworks!
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.
