I wasn't saying that we would have a hard time getting things transferred, even though like dmetz, we will probably be strewing personal belongings in a trail from Maine to BC and still have a ton when we get there.

I was merely wanting to let folks know that they don't allow personal belongings in the trailer across the border.

Just as those following the Oregon Trail did...

Has anyone done this?
We had our 8' truck bed (covered by a BAKFLP tonneau cover) and the extended cab back seat loaded to the gills. Going north and then back south at the Sumas crossing two days later with this load neither the Canadian officer (who was well familiar with ETI) nor the American officer was interested in looking in the truck after listening to our story of our trailer importation. As Karen suggests, we ended up moving everything quickly in the rain to the trailer, storing much of it temporarily on the trailer floor with the aid of the driver and the next person waiting for his trailer in Sumas.

Depending on what all you have and how much stuff and how much time you have to shift it and all that - here's another option that might work for ya. I've not used it, but others on this forum have mentioned it.

A grocery store just across/before the border in Sumas offers storage for those crossing over. This page will give you some information and I'm sure they can supply more if you contact them.
