I also bought from a private seller in BC and brought the trailer to the US. US Customs only wanted CBP Form 7501. It is only one page with basic info. Copies can be obtained in advance from Escape.

As Fran said in the previous post, the BC "title" is a simple certificate of registration from the Insurance Corp of BC. However, you can get a Transfer/Tax Form from ICBC that documents the sale of the trailer. This form may help satisfy your state title requirements. No tax is charged in Canada or at the crossing into US.

When you cross the border with the trailer be prepared to point out the sticker that says the trailer complies with US standards.

Overall the process went smoothly. The previous owners helped procure the forms.

When we came back to the US in July with our newly purchased used Escape from a private seller we had no problem. We came though the Sumas border figuring they were likely to have seen these trailers before....
The only form they wanted was the 7501 and our passports. They did examine the trailer for the vin # I guess and any thing else that they were looking for...didn't go inside, just an outside inspection. We had the Canadian registration and the bill of sale which were needed, along with the 7501 form in order to register the trailer when we got it home to New Mexico.
