Yahoo! We are now proud owners of a 5.0 TA

Yahoo!
Thanks to Reace and Tammy we are now the proud owners of a 2014 5.0 TA. Also thank you to Dennis for towing it down to Sumas for us. We made the transfer at Bob's Burgers where we stopped for a celebratory piece of pie and coffee.

We drove it back up over the border and are spending our last night here in Chilliwack at the hotel where we had stored all of our "stuff" for the trailer. We will become True Escapees tomorrow.

Is there a delivery charge to get it to Sumas? Why not just take possession in Chilli? Just curious.

How long a drive between the two?

Americans take possession in Sumas - the trailer is exported to the US- otherwise you will pay Canadian taxes. We took possession in Sumas and drove to DMV the next day and paid our state taxes and got our WA state plates. You will need a temporary trip permit from your DMV.

Reason for taking it to Sumas is that the US customer doesn't have to pay Canadian taxes and then apply to get reimbursed. Was a paperwork hassle before Escape started "exporting" the trailer.

ETI has to assure US destined trailers are exported so they don't have to collect sales taxes totaling about 15%.
It's probably 20 minutes to the border + crossing time.

ETI makes it as easy as possible, financially, for US residents as they can.

When Vicki and I came back across the border from visiting ETI, the Canadian Customs Agent told us... ETI has their "stuff" together!

Guess where I'm picking up my 5er? (after orientation, obviously)
