Oh wooow !!! When some people get power they forget that with great power comes greater responsibility !
Once I was importing a tent trailer (my very first one) and I told them it was exempt from the usual inspection/fees stuff. They asked me how I knew and I told them, and one of them brought a HUGE book, and found the relevant section, read it, they discussed it, interpreted it, and just signed the import paper and let me go. Took a bit, but I think they handled it properly. no RIV, no nothing ! Straight license plate ! Wooohooo !!! I am pretty sure I paid the GST on it at the time, 68 dollars or something
SCOC, thanks for clarifying the nexus for RV's ! Appreciated !
