If we were going to answer the OP's question, would we say yes, you can pick up your trailer in Chilliwack (if you have proper documentation) or no, you have to go to Sumas?
No, US citizens have to go to Sumas. Fourteen miles from Chilliwack and a foreign country away.

Last November when we went to pickup our trailer at Escape . I discovered I had a problem with my 7 pin plug at orientation. I asked if I could take delivery there at the factory to get my wiring sorted. That was NOT possible, ETI had to export to Sumas, I was told no US trailers could take delivery at the factory, and if not exported that day, new export documents would need to be drawn up at a cost $200.

The same happened to me at pick up in February. My 7 pin was wired poorly .... only 3 wires out of seven were correct. Reace sent me to a RV place about a mile East of ETI on a road that parallels Hwy 1. They did a great job on my wiring and everthing worked perfectly AND I was still able to cross the border in time without having to wait another day and pay for an additional export document.

Thank you Rease, thank you "Cap It" ( I think that was the name of the RV installation business).

As a side note: I had my wiring done at a RV shop in Olympia, Washington called Olympic Trailer Supply and Repair. They way over charged me for my 7 pin installation and incorrectly wired my tow vehicle. Stay away from that business!

Sounds right - Cap-it is a chain of truck accessories stores (which started selling "caps" or "canopies").
