Licencing an Inported Trailer in Ontario
Yes, we got a great deal on a 26-ft RV trailer,so much so, that the Canadain Customs Officer had a hard time believing the low price.
We bought it from a large Buffalo RV Dealer so we had all the paperwork but the border people wanted to see proof of payment. (A cancelled check) which we did not have but, luckily, I had a TD bank app on my smart phone and accessed my bank records which showed the payment and we were on our way.
Second - I parked the RV on my lot up north and took the paperwork to the Service Canada licence office to get a licence plate for the RV. I had all the paperwork but they said I had to take the RV to a Canadian Tire Store and they had to inspect and stamp the paper work before I could get it registered. Who Knew? Well now it is snowed in.
Apparently I am supposed to get a form from the Min of Transportation that tells me to do this within 10 days...stay tuned
Thanks for sharing your experience Michael. I think importing an non-motorized RV (a trailer or fifth wheel) has to be simpler than a motor home. It only makes sense (not that everything the government does would). Glad you got a great deal and that it worked out for you with minimal problems.
