Just to wander the thread a little... A scenic way to get from ME to NB is to take the ferry from Campobello to NB. Customs is a small building as you cross the little bridge from from Lubec ME to Campobello, at least it was last time we were there a few years back.

Very true, if anyone knows Tammy, you know she Kicks but and gets work done

"In other words, there's a process, Escape Trailer Industries is following it, it takes up to 8 weeks (again as Sarah said), there's no conspiracy nor any need to change any rules, and Escape's people have the contacts they need to get assistance working through this process."

I'm sure it is scenic and different, but I personally don't do boats!

No more than eating road killed possum is a prerequisite to live in (fill in the State of your choice!).

Or the fact that all Canadians live in igloos and eat whale fat.

LOL, my guess would be Tennessee. We don't wear shoes either.

Actually I was born and raised in Florida and lived there for 46 years

And Canadians don't live in igloos? Man you learn something everyday.

Just received this E-mail from Tammy.
Let's all be patient like she asks and hopefully this won't take long.

Hello John,

Thank you for your email.

Please find below a copy of the email we sent out earlier this week. At this time this notice does NOT affect you and the I am asking for your patience as we continue to work with NHSTA, the DOT and US Customs to resolve everything in a timely fashion.

As I continue to work with customs it does appear as though we may be able to resume exportation as early as Monday. However, until I receive confirmation I am not posting any further information.

Effective July 18, 2016 US Customs is temporarily suspending all US exports from Escape Trailer Industries. There are new importation requirements required by the US Department of Transportation which are being enforced by US Customs.
We have always followed the processes for exportation, trying to keep appraised as to the importation requirements of the US DOT. We have just received notice that the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has implemented further requirements for all Foreign Vehicle Manufactures.
Unfortunately, it may take up to eight weeks to complete the registration process allowing ETI to comply with the new registration requirements for the Foreign Manufacturers Reporting Requirements and VIN Decoding Requirements. This is extremely frustrating for ETI as these new requirements have become effective immediately, there is no transition or grace period allowing uninterrupted exportation, and importation of trailers from Canada into the US.

At this time Escape Trailer Industries is temporarily unable to export any trailers into the US until they fall into compliance of these new regulations being implemented by NHTSA.
We appreciate your patience and understanding, we will contact you as soon as we know more.
Please feel free to forward any questions you may have.

Warm regards,

Tammy Harmatuik, Business Manager

Yes, but once you are on Campobello Island (in New Brunswick), to get anywhere else you need to take at least one ferry - it looks like two, with a short transit of Deer Island between them.
