Roger, what made you decide on Tom Young's Trillium vs. the Outback made in Alberta? Lloyd
Well, Lloyd, the Outback Trillium
had real appeal. We would be pulling it with a Subaru Outback. Cute, eh?
However, they are 648 miles away, almost as far as CA/NV AND across an international border. I don't know what one would do trying to enter the US with an unlicensed Canadian trailer. I don't know if only filling out a form 3461 is sufficient or what?
And what about duty on the trailer? Plus or minus, when I called Outback, the gal seemed really put out that I should ask for a brochure. "It's all on the website." Well, lady, if you don't want to send me a brochure, I don't think you want to send me a trailer, either. I did finally receive a brochure but there again, the only way to judge these people and their organization, is by the persons who answer their phone and it seems many of them could use some training on how to treat potential customers. Besides the drive to CA could be done in the winter in relative safety and except for the Siskiyous
, no major pass between here and there (Carson City is different). Of course the traffic on I-5 between Portland and Seattle can rival rush hour at times, and this was 6 years ago the last time we took that route.
BTW that reminds me of another gripe I have with the mfgrs: No mention of that international border, e.g. American and Canadian models. Maybe the same, but then should say so.
With this new arrangement, with all models made in BC and shipped to CA/NV maybe I can convince them to drop one off as they pass my house. <_<
