Someone we all know. That is what we are being told.
Will have to see if anyone here knows about any of this.
Also told that the ICBC issues the travel permits.

I am supposing that people stopping at Lynden were residents of Washington picking up their tags there. I don't know about the other from WA at all, or the rest. Hope someone here does.

You still haven't told us the source of your information. Just asking us to guess.
I suggest you then go to ICBC web site.
New to or visiting BC
Which tells non-residents how long they can use a foreign driver license in BC/Canada.
I Googled ICBC Travel permits for Americans and this was the best I could come up with.

Thank you, Glenn. I had been to their website but there is nothing that pertains to unregistered trailers. We will likely not have ours registered as our state does not issue temporary tags. I can easily look into the Washington info but expect it would not be that easy to get someone from the ICBC who knows about unregistered trailers. We are looking at what we might do about it.

Where did you get this information, that apparently nobody else has or is a problem that nobody else has encountered?

Remember, we are taking a big trip back through Canada. Americans usually cross the border and leave right away, or a few stay a few days and leave, then go home the rest of the way through the U.S. I cannot think of anyone who spent a few weeks in Canada. Others from our state came right back over the border. Don't know of anyone who would have needed such a thing as a travel permit for BC. Some bring tags and some temp tags.

If you would tell us where you got this information, we might be able to help you.
Canada earns billions of dollars through tourism. I can think of no better way to stop those tourists from coming than by charging them a fee for traveling through the country. There is an entire economy based on renting motor homes to Germans who drive them from Alberta to BC through the Rocky Mountains and back.
Would you please tell us the source of your "information"?

I do not wish to name a name, obviously, as the information may or may not be correct. I will try to get straight what the correct info is and let you know. I am sure I can easily get the Washington part straight and will figure out the rest soon. This is not a fee for travelling through but a fee for using an unregistered trailer, which is what an Escape is until the buyer registers it. All rental trailers would be registered by those businesses so this would not apply to them.

Maybe I missed it, but can't you get your trailer registered and receive plates in your home state based on paperwork ETI can send you? I did here in Oregon, took about 10 minutes total at DMV and believe me Oregon DMV is NOT an easy agency to deal with.

My insurance company has asked me to inform them when I drive out of the US with my truck and/or trailer. They don't charge me anything extra, they just want to know in case there's any issues.

Some states require an actual inspection and verification of the VIN# before issuing plates, as here in Pennsylvania. Some people will just travel with their paperwork, unregistered on their way back home, without any plates nor issues. One can obtain from Washington State a 3 day transit tag for a nominal fee, via mail. This can then be attached to use while returning to your home state.
As long as you have the required insurance on both the trailer and auto you should be fine while in Canada or US without plates. Crossing the border maybe another issue, but I'm sure it can be done with the ETI supplied paperwork.
