thanks Rick and ONeOleMan. We will be leaving on a trip with the 19 right after orientation, so any advice or tips or things to do would be greatly appreciated.

I am now officially terrified.

Follow up: that was an over-reaction after a glass of wine. Am sure it will be fine!

It really will be OK . We didn't hear half of what we were told . We were just so overwhelmed with the trailer . The excitement is so hard to contain . You will figure it out . You always can ask for help here on the Forum . Also we made many phone calls to Escape and they were very patient with us . You have new adventures to look toward too . Pat

I am right there with you! Terrified! Lots to learn, but glad to have the forum and ETI to help!

I just got my paperwork from ETI and went to the CA DMV. They told me that they must inspect the trailer before they will register and issue plates. They offered a One Trip Permit which allows us to bring it home. It cost $20.

We had to do the same in Washington State, even though some have said that they were able to get the license prior to pick-up in WA. We were told that the stamped document you receive from customs at the border is necessary before a title and license plate can be issued.

I've now registered two Escape trailers in California. When I did the 17 it was at a small DMV in Northern California, and the whole process took 20 minutes maximum, with me leaving with the plates. When I registered the 19 here in Santa Cruz County it was an absolute dose of hell. They had to photocopy every single document and send them off to Sacramento for verification. I got a temporary permit, and the plates came in the mail about a month later. And, I had to explain, and explain again, the conversion from Canadian dollars to US dollars. My advice Californians is to make copies of everything in advance, and have a perfectly clear receipt showing US equivalent of purchase price. And, go to a small town DMV.
