Congrats on your trailer Dave and Monica. I just joined this web site today. Your story caught my eye. I am in the process of buying a Sandpiper 301BHD coming in from Michigan. I feel a lot more at ease with the import process after reading your story. I live in Brantford and keep my trailer parked permanently at a marina in Long Point. The fellow two trailers over from me works at Dofasco. He lives in the Upper James Stonechurch area. Once again Congratulations.

Thanks Wally...if you have any questions with regards to importing into Canada, I should be able to answer them. There's also a thread titled "Importing into Canada" (using the search function) which will provide more some info.

Good Morning Folks

I do have one question. Is the RIV Certification equivalent to the CSA Z240 Series certification for RV's and does CSA recognize the RIV Certification.

Thanks

Wally

CSA certification not required to import

I bought US trailer and no one at Canadian Tire inspection requested it. All inspection involved was tire pressure check and that exterior lights function That's it. All appliances have CSA cert anyway. Save your money

Ps You should not have to pay Michigan sales tax if you have Manuf letter stating that there are no recalls, do not have any intention of licensing in Michigan and take delivery at border.

Same experience with us. RIV is set-up for motorized vehicles...trailers just happen to fall under their jurisdiction.

I'd advise that you talk to you insurance agent well in advance as some have an issue as its not registered or licenced in Canada.

If you have nothing going on May 17th long weekend join us at Alleganey State park red hat area. Would be neat to see more Rockwoods. They actually allow adults to drink alcoholic drinks on weekends. Not like Ontario public parks

Guess what! We're already booked into Allegany May 16 - 19 at site #79 in Cain Hollow campground. That's the first weekend that this area is open...we tried to book a site along the creek (backing onto ASP 1) in Red House but everthing was pretty much gone. We're stopping there on our way back from 11 days in Shenandoah National Park in Virginia.

Really small world, eh!

Send me a PM what you schedule is and we'll arrange to get together and pound back some drinks!

Dave
