Hi from Amsterdam, Holland
Greetings from Europe!
After having been RV-ing in the States, I have adopted the plan to purchase a tow vehicle in 2010 and a TT in 2011 to export to my home in Amsterdam. Those in the know say I am a quarter bubble of plumb. I must say, from what I have found out so far, it's no pick nick.
After a few months of searching and consideration, I am now looking for a 2003-2004 Suburban of Yukon XL to ship over here in 2010. While at that, I am looking for a Forest River Surveyor SV291 to ship over in 2011. That by itself is a chore. Regretfully that will not be mission accomplished for me.
The truck will not be hard to license here. The TT is another story all together. I am still corresponding with the DMV here, but it appears that they will require the TT to have surge brakes and a tongue weight of no more then 330 lbs. That would means swapping the axles. That would leave my plan dead in the water.
I understand that it is possible to import the TT into the U.K. and have it licensed there, as it is. From there, one can import it anywhere in the E.U. as it is. That might be the way to go for me.
If you have any tips about how or where to find a good used Surveyor SV291 and what to look for in a used unit, please let me know. If you have tips about getting the TT licensed in the E.U., better still!
