Tammy can herself, and she's working on it. We can't; all we can do is stay out of the way.

The trailer remains empty when brought into the U.S. because it is a vehicle that would have to be inspected for contraband if the owners had already taken possession. The buyers usually take possession on the U.S. side, and not having taken possession yet when crossing the border, the agents do not have to search it. That is what I think anyway. You are not allowed to have anything personal in there. They figured at Escape that our WDH was not a problem in the box.

The status hasn't changed yet.
That is so helpful, thank you!

Looks like the process has been in place since 2012.

WMI Application
For Non-US Based Manufacturers:
Beginning January 1, 2012, SAE will begin charging a one-time only fee of $525 USD for companies needing a World Manufacturers Identifier (WMI) code from areas outside of the United States where there is no governing body established to assign a WMI Code.
The code provided will be for on-road vehicles only.

Hi Klem so correct if I am wrong is the one time fee for the WMI a one time fee , the manufacturer pays ? Hopefully it is not for each trailer ? Is this something we need to be concerned about for our trailer back in Nov . 2013 ? What if we cross into Canada and then when we come back to the United Stares ? Pat

Hi Pat, looks like a one time fee the manufacturer pays. Irma asked the same question about our next trip to Canada, probably in September. Now that we are licensed in WA common sense would be it should be fine for us. But who knows.... .?

This is certainly for the manufacturer, and not for individual trailers.

I'm sure that it is not a concern for any trailer which has already been imported into the United States. When a U.S. residents visits Canada with a trailer, that's not exporting and re-importing the trailer - the trailer is just one of your possessions that you're taking with you - so there's no issue.

Yes, we took possession at Sumas and stayed on the U.S. side for a couple of days, or three. We were without hook-ups checking the boondocking/inverter situation, and then went back into Canada for a big trip of several weeks through the Rockies. No problem getting back in. No import/export situation to deal with. Escape already took care of that when crossing to Sumas to give us the trailer.
