Unfortunately, we won't be attending the rally in June. Just a little too early for my wife, who is still working. I couldn't figure out how to work out the travel time this year. Next year is a definite YES as she will be done working and we can go anywhere anytime, that is why the splurge on the Escape. Thanks again for letting us see your Escape and helping us to make up our minds.

Please share information after you have picked you trailer. Did Escape "export" the trailer into Sumas for you ? Was it late in the afternoon after orientation and export ? If US orientations are scheduled for 8am it could be along day before departure in the US. We are picking a 19' up in June and need to plan accordingly.
Thank you, Jubal

Jubal,
Jim and Robin from Portland Or, had no problems, but I will post all the details after April 1. I already have all of the necessary paperwork which includes: bill of sale, Certificate of Origin, New Vehicle Information (Canadian), US Dept Transportation Declaration of Importation of Vehicle, NAFTA Certificate of Origin, US Customs Invoice, Dept Homeland Security Entry Summary, and Importer ID. All have been filled out by Escape and only need our signatures, and stamps at the border. Washington State will not sell me my license until after I have customs stamp so I will use a 30 Day Temporary Permit to pick up the trailer (just to be safe) in Washington it is only $25. As you can see from the titles of the paperwork, we are importing the vehicle rather than Escape exporting the vehicle.

Tim and Julie

Hello
I requested an after action report because it seems that escape has changed their procedure. Please see the picking up your escape trailer thread.

Once the trailer is finished we will schedule a four hour Orientation for you at your convienence. Once the orientation is completed one of our driver's will transport the trailer from our facility in Chilliwack, BC to Sumas, WA.
Both the driver and new Escape owner will travel separately back to Sumas, WA. Our driver will export the trailer across the border into the US through the Commercial Lanes, while the US Resident crosses the border through the standard crossing.
The driver will then meet the US owner at a predetermined location in Sumas, where the trailer will be unhooked and the new owner will be able to hook up and continue home.


Hello Everyone,
As outlined in the FAQ on the Escape Forum. The trailers are Exported rather than being Imported. In 2007, the Canada Revenue Agency told us that we could have the trailer Imported by the customer into the US as long as we maintained proof of exportation. This change in process was a result of a change with the NAFTA.
However, after a recent review the Canada Revenue Agency has now asked that we being Exporting the trailers across the border into Sumas, WA. Rather than the customer having the 7501 stamped by the Customs Officer. We now have the Customs Officer stamp the 7501 and provide the customer with a certified copy.
The purpose for exporting your trailer is to ensure you as a US citizen is exempt from the BC Sales Tax HST which is 12%.

Please feel free to forward any questions you may have.

Tammy

Via e-mail from Escape trailers. 3/12/13
E-mail sent:
Hello
Do you now tow the new Escape into the US through customs for the costumer ?
What if we want to travel east through Canada and exit at the border crossings further to the east ? Do we reenter Canada ?
We are happy to do that which works best for you. It seems that it would take a full day to go through orientation in the AM
and go through customs in the pm.

E-mail recieved:
Once we have exported the trailer into the US you will be able to re-enter Canada and travel East.
The purpose of exporting the trailer is to have the VIN number cited by a US Government Official and have the 7510 Form Stamped or certified. This form is normally what allows you to register the trailer in your state. However, depending on which state you are from you may be able to obtain title, registration and insurance before you leave home. We will provide you with a copy of the exportation documents once we have assigned your trailer a VIN number.
We schedule all US orientations for 8am as each orientation takes approximately four hours and then we are about 30 minutes from the border. However, as we all know the line ups at the border can take longer some times than others and we need to ensure we have been processed through the commercial side before 4pm.
I hope this helps.
Warm regards,
Tammy Harmatuik
