For what it's worth, went on line last Friday to set up a DMV appointment and managed to snag one at 2:20 pm that same day! Went down with all my Escape paperwork, filled out a few forms, took the forms and paperwork to a counter where the clerk typed everything into the DMV system and asked me for my check (sales tax and DMV fees). She went away and came back a few minutes later with our temporary "permit". Told me to come in when we return with the trailer so they can verify the VIN number and then our permanent plates and registration will be sent to us. I was out of there by 3:10 pm. Must be a new record ... and it certainly helps to have someone who knows what they are doing.

A big smile and a lot of patience made things flow at our local DMV. The only major issue I found was a desire to tax the Canadian $ price, not the USD. I had printed a web page showing conversion amounts for the date on the bill of sale. The clerk paused for a moment then stapled it the rest of the documents, took my check, and I was on my way. Having Kim prepare a document showing both $ amounts would probably seem more "official" to the more aggressive DMV's.

I forgot to update my status . Finally received 2weeks ago registration papers with correct license plate number on paper which they already gave me before it was registered. It took the loan company to get involved because they were just as upset as we were. This has been going on since last year Dec. 2 when they were paid all fees and physically saw trailer and checked vin #. 3 times to DMV and wait up to 5hours . The best part was they said we were the first Escape trailer in California which we tried to tell them was not true . Maybe someone in Sacramento will now see many Escape trailers being registered in California .Sorry if I sounded crabby but I am not that young anymore to put up with stupidity which I have to pay for in taxes. I hope no one has to go through this again.

On my final Build Sheet, ETI listed all payment details: USD, exchange rates and CND

Nope, I understand your pain. I've been burned many times by various DMV offices in the Silicon Valley. I have to say, the people near us (Santa Cruz/Capitola) seem to be on the ball ... or maybe they just don't care. But, seriously, they took Tammy's exchange rate at face value and only charged me tax on the U.S. dollars. The gal even said, a couple of times, that this was a VERY easy transaction thanks to Tammy's very complete paperwork.

At least we are legal now . They just did not know what to do . We did try another office near us on the recomendation of our ins agent but it was the same. They still need to pay us back $57.00 because fees were in checks but not holding our breath that may take 6months. Anyway love our 19 and have no issues with Escape Industries and are still glad we have our little Canadian Bambi.

Yes, a few years down the road, you'll laugh at your experience with the DMV. Ha, ha .... And congratulations, maybe we'll meet at one of the get togethers.
