To be sure I would just call Tammy. She explained everything over the phone to me beforehand, and also while we were picking up our trailer. At the border, it all unfolded just as she described.

Hello Everyone,

As outlined in the FAQ on the Escape Forum. The trailers are Exported rather than being Imported. In 2007, the Canada Revenue Agency told us that we could have the trailer Imported by the customer into the US as long as we maintained proof of exportation. This change in process was a result of a change with the NAFTA.

However, after a recent review the Canada Revenue Agency has now asked that we being Exporting the trailers across the border into Sumas, WA. Rather than the customer having the 7501 stamped by the Customs Officer. We now have the Customs Officer stamp the 7501 and provide the customer with a certified copy.

Please feel free to forward any questions you may have.

Tammy

So, Tammy (it appears that you are still logged on to this forum)
Please clarify. Escape trailers will now tow the vehicle through customs ? What if we want to travel east in Canada and then enter the US ? Do we reenter Canada ?
Thank you, Jubal
OK, were logged on when I started to reply.

Hello Jubal,

Yes, you can re-enter Canada once it has been exported into the US.

The purpose for exporting your trailer is to ensure you as a US citizen is exempt from the BC Sales Tax HST which is 12%.
Once your trailer has entered production we will assign your trailer a VIN number and prepare the documents for you to title and insure your trailer.

Depending on which state you are from you may also be able to register the trailer and bring with you the metal plates for your trailer. However, we still have to export the trailer before you continue on your holiday.

If you are unable to obtain the metal plates before you arrive you will have 30 days to travel east before returning to N. Indiana and register your trailer.

Please let me know if you require further clarification

Update for U.S. customers. We picked up our new 15B on Monday, April 1. The rules have changed, again. We did all of the paperwork at Escape and we could not put anything inside as Reace had to take it across the border. We met him at the parking lot of Bob's Burgers and Brew in Sumas and he unhitched and gave up the stamped customs sheet. The paperwork is for that day so even if you want to tour Canada you take delivery in Sumas and then drive back across the border. We stayed at a nice KOA in Lynden, WA where we loaded our things, filled our propane tank and enjoyed the sun and a beer after a long eventful day.

Isn't this bureaucratic stuff a lot of fun? Just wait until next year, someone will change things again.

Glad to hear you got your trailer okay though, do enjoy.

Congratulations, Tim and Julie! It looks great. Thanks for the photos. Now for the fun. Good time to get it so you have the whole camping season to use it.
