Purchasing a Truck Camper from WA and importing to BC

by Michelle
(Squamish BC)

Hey there,

So it seems truck campers are exempt from insurance in BC. However if I were to buy a used truck camper from the state of Washington, where they must insure their truck campers, would this be quite the hassle for the owner? And would I still have to declare a used camper at the border?

Thanks much!

It's not a vehicle

Although travel trailers and fifth wheels are treated the same as a motorhome, truck campers (or slide-in campers, as Transport Canada calls them) can be brought over the border the same as any other merchandise.

Note: That was the information we were given a few years ago; you may want to check with the Registrar of Motor Vehicles to be sure that nothing has changed since then. http://www.riv.ca/Home.aspx
