Brand new to the RV CAmping World, we travelled a lot in Ontario and stayed in Tents and used tarps for years. Now we are on to the RV scene
We purchased/ordered a new Rockwood Roo 233S with a lot of Bells and Whistles from RVDirect in The USA. We got an amazing deal, and we are picking it up this Friday in Elkhart so we saved the Freight.
If you are seriously considering, I would suggest you have a look at RV Direct, the salesman Jeff Blair was very helpful and worked in a few changes to the order even after we purchased.
The importing of trailers is very simple into Canada from the USA. You pay only GST (on the purchase price in the USA adjusted based on the exchange rate at the time) at the border and the RIV fee around $250.00. Then you have it inspected at Canadian Tire (fee for this is already included in the RIV) then you attend the MTO and pay the PST on the price and purchase a plate. You are now on the road in Ontario for THOUSANDS LESS than a dealer up here. We saved around $8000.00 on the overall price. We have the trailer pretty much loaded with every option and the price was $16,200.00 No state taxes or fees and that included out Temp travel Permit, battery, starter kit and two tanks of Propane. Is that not a deal based on Canadian Prices !!! Oh yeah its a 2011 not a 2010!!!
Let me know if you need any help or if you want Jeffs Direct email?
