One of you carries the money and declares it. That's all that needs to be done.
Just happen to be watching Border Security where guy doesn't declare gold bar worth $2,200 and that he has $11,000 in cash.
Cost him $250 fine for the cash and then he had to apply and pay fines to get the gold bar back.
It's just a piece of paper that you have to fill out, so why not just do it?

If you are putting a deposit down or even making full payment, just write a check, when you get there, it does not have to be a bank check unless you want to take delivery that day.

We understood that a cashier's check is considered cash. You can call the border and ask. Can't tell you about per person.

Edit: $10000CAD is now $7644USD
Yes, they are including checks in that (as a monetary instrument under the $10000 CAD limit) such as bank drafts or traveler's checks.

I'm having trouble understanding why folks would want to risk a crime and not tell the border guards what you have. A quick explanation or the form Glenn mentioned stating that you are paying for a trailer at Escape is all that would be required.

They just want to know what they can take and not have to declare. If you have to declare something, you could be waved on through. Or not. And believe it or not, people forget a lot of things they have. They intended to declare them but forgot. Really.

Not sure I would forget that I was carrying $20,000.

Little Richie, why is the non-interest bearing account important?

Usaa

On USAA site it has where they can wire transfer to a business outside the US in their currency. $35.
Also, re. the non interest account; it's because of newish international reciprocal income reporting arrangements. Any $ earning interest/dividends outside the US will be reported to the IRS. Offshore accounts are becoming more exposed to taxing entities.
