But, the Sumas crossing folks are much more likely to be familiar with the Escape situation that other crossings than might think it strange that a trailer, maybe not fully licensed, is trying to cross back into Canada.

So, all other things being more or less equal, I guess if it was me I'd cross at Sumas. If there's any issues to deal with better to find out sooner than later. And, after towing the unit for an hour or so, if any issues turn up, help is close by.

Two very good points, Ron. Florida is one of the states that allow you to register a trailer that is in another location and hasn't been picked up yet. Since I already have a tag, it will be a "transfer." An expensive one since I expect the transfer fee, application for title, and sales tax will be somewhere around $2,500.

And hopefully there won't be any issues with the new trailer. When I picked up my Scamp, I hung around Minnesota for a few days for that very reason.
