Might check the Canadian Ferries
as well the Washington Ferries to compare prices. Yes, they do take trailers, you pay by the foot to get them on. They have the measurements marked on the roadway as you get to the pay booth.
We used the one from Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal, which did not go to the city of Victoria, but at a terminal up the Island several miles. We went by the Butchart Gardens
before we drove down to Victoria. Vancover Island has a lot to see and do
and is pretty large as well.
Of course now days one will have to have a Passport or at least a Passport Card to do a visit into Canada.Pacific Northwest -
I remember passing several Provincial Parks Campgounds on the hwy along the Sound to Squamish
which is a very lovely drive, along the way we visited Shannon Falls.
Getting onto and off the ferry is a breeze, they have it all worked out and runs smooth as glass. We did not take the trailer to the island, but we did use a smaller ferry in Washington to get around.
Our trip was not a recent one, in '86 (a 20' 1983 Komfort Lite Bunkhouse) which we took on a trip to Yellowstone, Glacier, Baniff in Canada to Victoria, BC then down the west coast to SoCal & back home towed with the 16 year old '70 Chevy farm truck without a butane tank & a low shell. Our second trip was in '97 but we did not go to the island on it.
