It didn't when I took a bunch of stuff across the border that they needed for the build (sink, cushion fabric and I forget what else). That was over two years ago, so I don't know if things have changed due to a resident of the WA DC area. I doubt you'll have any problems, though.

It depends on Customs Agent who is asking the questions, but normally if presented as personal items you will get waved through.

I took stuff across once and no issues. On the day I went to pickup my trailer I had tires/wheels, batteries, Umbra hook etc. and I had to go inside and declare.

Best recommendation if you take any items to have ETI install. Bring receipts of the items, this way you save time and are not getting over taxed if they decide to tax. Anything taxed and installed into the trailer and returns across the border can be submitted for refund.

Worst case if you do not have receipts, they may tell you to go get the receipts.

Keep in mind and in grand scheme of things, we are not talking a lot of money here.

Most important, always answer truthfully.

Just be prepared, plan for worst and hope for best.

We did not need anything else for installation. I looked on wayfair.ca site and did not find any info on cyber Monday deal and of course it cost more.

You are right. I was glad to find it as Colleen wanted that size sink and it still cost quite a bit less than the one she was going to order.
Question, when you bought it did you ship it to Canada and if so was it quite expensive? Thanks, Ronn

Ronn,
There was no shipping charge through Wayfair Canadian. As I recall, when I ordered I explained that Iwanted it delivered to Chilliwack and they routed it out of Canada to avoid extra costs. That was my first time dealing with Wayfair and they were great.

I had no problem with Umbra hooks & a Springfield pedestal when crossing into Canada as Sumas in August, 2017.

Very smart of you, I didn't think of trying that as I recall expensive shipping with Amazon going into Canada.

Etrailer.com also has a warehouse in Canada. I order by phone so that I can request that they ship from Ontario.

Normally the installer will mount the faucet so the spout is centered on the drain. Depending on faucet, this could put the back part to close to window shade.

Is that an Ikea sink and faucet? I understand this is an old post, but interested in your sink. I am working on my build sheet that has to be finalized monday. ETI approved the a sink and faucet from Ikea and it looks very similar to what you have. The reviews for the sink are poor, so I would like to get your opinion.



Thanks!

Our custom sink here:

https://www.escapeforum.org/forums/f...-8031-129.html

if that not work, it is from that thread on the forums, on pg 129


Holly loves her bigger sink!! She also loves:
1. the extra wardrobe cabinet we had the factory put in..and
2. the MW is down under the range top.
3. the main wardrobe is 'up top'
4. the 'neutral' custom fabric
5. that front window

I was easily able to install the TV 'swivel mount' base.. onto the front side of that front wardrobe..I used thru-bolts and larger washers to give a "wider base" for the 2 mounting bolts..it seems solid. WE are having to install the umbra hooks, bks we were not able to get TO the factory bks of the border closing. I decided to NOT use the silly mounting methods unbra suggests, but instead solidly thru-bolted them to framed areas, using bolts w tapered heads and counter-sunk the heads. ..so they hardly show..

I'm hoping i will...our Houzer arrived at Escape in pieces, so I had them cut out the counter in prep for it and I'll install the replacement myself - it took weeks to have it shipped from the Midwest to Chilliwack, and the replacement wouldn't have made it there in time for the build. I had it shipped directly to me instead, and it arrived in 5 days. Oh well, at least it'll be an easy install/drain hookup, and the faucet is centered for the Houzer - if I had just accepted the SS sink and retrofitted later, the faucet would have been off-center.

Question

Anyone happen to know the cutout dimensions for the standard sink that comes in the 5.0? Happen to know if any current Escape model uses a smaller (cutout dimensions) sink as standard?

Yes, ETI can answer come my configuration time ... just thought I'd ask here

I'd rather shop for sinks after I've had the trailer awhile .... DIY my sink replacement after delivery, along with Hepvo mod to maximize the storage space below, but don't want to have a standard cutout that's larger in some dimension that the replacement I choose. I do understand there's the faucet-centering implications.
