Of course I don't know what CA demands. We checked that first.
Enjoy the waiting. We're on pins and needles.

Hi Karen (and Kathy),
I have a different "Florida" story. I had Tammy provide the paperwork (bill of sale, essentially the build list) showing the Canadian price and the amount I paid in U.S. Dollars. In spite of the fact that I insisted that Tammy's figure was what I paid (I had copies of the 3 cashier's checks), the local DMV insisted on calculating the conversion based on the current exchange rate. Had it come out higher than what I had paid, I would have really caused a scene and insisted that the county's tax collector address the issue. However, when all was said and done, the sales tax was @ $200 less than what it should have been based upon what I paid ETI. Go figure. Anyway, my orientation is tomorrow (5/27) and I have my tag in the tow vehicle and will put it on the trailer as soon as I take possession in Sumas. I am glad Florida is one of the states that allows registration ahead of time as it eliminates the worry of a temporary tag expiring before one returns home.

I went to a local AAA in SoCal with the ETI paperwork. They used the current exchange rate that was found online (which was in my favor) and I walked out with the registration and license plate before I left to pick up the trailer in Chilliwack.

Cathy yes We are, but unfortunately the local AAA office is very small and doesn't handle first time registration of any vehicles, only renewals.....K

Rick,
Exactly which AAA office did you use. I'd really like to have the plate when we pick up our Escape. (I went to our AAA office in Camarillo last week to inquire, and they said that for a new import trailer I'd have to go to DMV.)

Regarding the location of the CA AAA office:

I am in Mission Viejo (South Orange County) and it was a newly opened, small AAA office. There were absolutely no issues encountered with the ETI paperwork. The AAA rep went online, found the current exchange rate, calculated the CA tax, applied the DMV fees and finished it up in less than 30 minutes.
