Ron I neglected to mention that once I had the title and bill of sale in Spokane I faxed it my our insurance company who then issued temporary insurance for the trip home which covered the trailer (and in effect the yet to be issued plate) until I got to the insurance company with the appropriate documents, i.e. the customs form, RIV inspection form, bill of sale, and US title.

Of course each province has its own regulations, it's best that the OP follows what applies in BC.

OK, yes, that was an important fact.

In my CA case I hadn't paid for the car but ICBC still issued me temporary insurance coverage by using the VIN. Definitely worth checking what ICBC says about hauling the trailer without not only the registration but more importantly from the penalty view, any insurance.

While the B.C. information is what a B.C. resident needs, I'll note for others that this varies by jurisdiction. Here in Alberta liability for the trailer is covered by the tow vehicle's policy; there's no need (if all you are concerned about is liability) to insure the trailer at all. My policy does list one of my trailers, but as an informational note only - there's no premium for the trailer.
