So what constitutes proof of ownership? All that we have with us are our insurance papers.

Registration

I just crossed last week for a day visit and showed passport & vet docs for Bella (my dog). Crossed via ferry from Cape Vincent to Wolfe Island and then ferry to Kingston. It was just a day trip (w/o my tt) to do some 1000 Island sightseeing. The line coming back across to the U.S. took a little longer but still went smoothly.

You don't need proof of ownership to cross there or back. I have been to Canada several times and they never ask me where I bought my RV. Just have your registration. That's you proof there. Plus, you have American plates on your rig. No different than taking your car over the border.

Canada will also deny entry if you've had a DWI.

I doubt you'd be denied just on having a DWI in the past. However, there's a pretty good chance you'd be denied if you're currently DWI.

In Canada it is a felony offense. There is in fact a great likelihood that you would get denied entry. It is discretionary, and more probable the more recent the occurrence...and don't lie about it.

If you have any pending legal action or on probation likely will be questioned and returned. Then a minimum 1 year wait to retry entry. If you take firearms in and are caught it is closer to 10 years. If they are registered hunting weapons, no problem, just declare them.

We travelled to the US the same day a person attacked our freedom shooting un armed Solider in Ottawa then moved to Parliment. At the time we did not know, the US border was tight, lots of questions, including the exact campground address. Every time we are questioned about fruits and vegetables and some meats.

I have a friend that can't go into USA due to a DWI 20 years ago in Canada. He was fine till the day he was asked to go inside for a random inspection. That is when they discovered his charge.



don't forget to bring your Toque




If you are planning on bring any firearms you need to make an application prior to going to the border.

Turning off cell phone is great idea. Many smartphones automatically update apps like email and Facebook etc. The data charges can quickly add up.

If you don't have an international data plan the cost for date per KB is .015 cents. Cell coverage is $1.00 a minute. Texts are 50 cents each. (AT&T pay per use rates)

Is that in Canadian or US dollars?? And per liter or per gallon?

Researching on the internet, I calculated the cost for diesel in Canada to be about $4.75 (US) per gallon in the Calgary area.

We're planning a trip to the Calgary area for next summer...but if it's $5 per liter, maybe we'll reconsider.
