I hear you. Seems like he'd say anything to get us to buy up here [except lower the price]. Like I've said I've dealt many times with US dealers.

I've seen one Canadian dealer give one guy a hard time about bringing his US purchased trailer in for service work, even paid work like winterizing. So he started going to a different dealer that was more than happy to take his work. They get paid either way for the warranty work, so dealers that give you grief are just throwing a tantrum. Take it to a different guy.

Not sure, but other than the currency exchange isn't the unit covered under NAFTA, and therefore no duty. Depending on the state you can buy it free of state and local tax (US side), if your going to export it to Canada imediately. Check that states state and local tax laws. 11 grand sounds like a no brainer IMO.

I bought in USA and had a water leak. The Surveyor dealers in Canada refused to service my trailer ... because I had bought it in USA. I passed by the factory on my way back from Florida and they fixed it at the factory. I saved 9,000 dollars, that is a lot of money to not save.

You pay the appropriate taxes and import fees at crossing.

Goomph, if it was brought in to Canada properly, let Surveyor know that a dealer will not service it, they will hear about it. They can play games with you by putting you lower on their priority, but either way they GET PAID to service your unit. What if I moved across country, will the new dealer refuse because I did not buy it there??
