Yep, saw on two seperate occasions euro type RV's. They generally are smaller with utilization of space at the top of their design. That macho unit is sure the exception. Just a good feeling to know that they want to see our great country. The ones I spoke with couldn't get over the freedom we enjoy between the individual states, and how cheap most things are compared to socialist europe (their words).

Is he really all the way from Switzerland?

It appears Eura Mobil is a european RV manufacturer - Eura Mobil: Eura Mobil (EN)


Stupid question - How would you get your vehicle over here? Ferry from Russia, maybe?

I know I can drive my car into Mexico or Canada, but can you really take a vehicle from the other side of the world and bring it to the US (or vice versa) with no registration or anything? I would think it would have to meet US crash regulations or something?

Anyway, pretty cool sighting. I wish I'd have gotten a chance to talk to them, but they were already back in the RV and waiting to leave (blocked from the front by an inconsiderate truck) by the time I noticed.
why did you not just walk up to his window and begin a conversation while waiting in line? I think you missed a golden opportunity to learn about someone from another culture!

Because I didn't notice the plate until he was pulling away.

Sorry.

There are transatlantic and transpacific roll on- roll off services for anything that will not fit in a container, Just leave your vehicle at the port and pick it up on the other side of the world!! It's not cheap but cheaper than long term rentals.

Nothing unusual. The Swiss and Germans love travelling and generally if they bring their rigs they are here for up to a year. They like Canada as it has lots of accessible widlife. All they have to do with their RV and TV if needed is to load them into containers or use a Ro-RO vesssele and get insurance and cleaning certificates and bring money.The autobahns connect to the major N Europe ports like Hamburg, Bremen or Rotterdam.

When I was picking up my 5er back in 2012, there was a couple picking up their 5er also. They were from Europe (not sure where) and came over here and bought a new fully loaded Ford dually and a new Cedar Creek to tour the US for 6mos to a year. Then they would sell it and go home. They bought the CC at Couch's in Hamilton, OH. I guess they were the cheapest.

Nice to be able to do that! DH and I spent a month twice driving and exploring France (in addition to 3 previous short trips). We stayed in small B & Bs for a week at a time, using each as a home base to drive and explore somewhere new every day. It would have been amazing to have been able to stay for an extended time, but alas, Europe is very expensive, and we had to go back to work at the end of summer.
