Smile Still researching; financia, taxes,l and fees questions

What are the basics regarding taxes (Canadian and U.S.), fees, and miscellaneous costs when purchasing a new Escape from ETI?
Vs. used from a Canadian private seller?
Vs. used from a U.S. Seller?

Are there advantages/disadvantages in comparing all above scenarios?
Then, specifically for you Illinois Escape owners, are there any other state taxes or fees if I purchase a new or used Escape? From Canada or out of state?

Not only am I new to the camper world, but also am brand-spanking new to Illinois!
Steep learning curves....and hubby is not happy I've been spending all of my time trying to research online, when I'm supposed to be unpacking!
...although I'm having fun learning....
If someone could list the basics, i'm sure that would help me along with other Escape wannabes. thank you in advance!

Prices for the Escape are in Canadian dollars which you can convert here USD Exchange Rates | Live currency rates, exchange rate graphs
so figure around $.80 for every canadian when bought there, in US it is dollar for dollar. Then when you register in Illinois you pay your sales tax at 6 or whatever % based upon US dollar, not the higher Canadian.

So, that's all that's involved? Just my state tax? Then, it's quite straight forward?!
Thanks!
