I'm going to ask Tammy about that, do I need that for the trek back to the border? I'm also going to talk to my insurance co, they normally issue a binder on a new rv purchase showing the existence of insurance, not sure if that meets BC requirements.

We do require that the trailer have a visible valid licence (fixed or temp) on it so having that would not be a bad thing! It might also get you through other states that have the same requirement. As someone pointed out you will have the Canadian Maple leaf on the tire cover and with a temp ICBC permit in the back window of the trailer & from the back they cant see your trucks licence plate so good bet they will think all is good and your just a Canadian tourist in the USA Who knows it might work for you - we tourists tend to get treated very well in the US

While it probably depends on the state of registration & the insurance company, here in NY my Allstate agent asked what day I wanted the insurance to start, the cost of the trailer, and they issued a new insurance card that included the trailer.

What is involved for US customers exporting an Escape ?

There are no taxes or duties payable on the purchase of an Escape Trailer. When you arrive to take possession of your new Escape, we will provide you with all the necessary forms required by the border to import the trailer into the US. When crossing into the the US, a confirmation of the VIN is all that is necessary and you are on your way.

escape

why don't you just let escape bring the trailer to you then you could have 7 days of camping instead of driving . I don't know the cost but if they have enough trailers going to east coast it might be a wash with gas and food and problems along the way? just asking

Last entry from Jim on this thread was in 2012. "That" trailer (Escape 19) was, in fact delivered by Escape or hired carrier. I believe there's another Escape coming--the 21 named Blackjack. Got to get up early to catch Jim with a trailer. Sometimes it's easier to catch him without!

I missed news of the delivery somehow. How's it work with that FJ? We stopped in BC 29 Dec. on way back from Indiana. Got buckwheat, pumpkin, and Apple pancake flower from the miller's wife. Out of hickory syrup. Said she gets it from the Farm Show in Harrisburg.

By the by, I'm beginning to see how updating avatars throws off the sense of chronology here. Gotta watch those dates of posting.

Burnt Cabins will ship also. We took some of their pancake mix out to Nebraska last summer and it won best in cg taste. I like it there during the week, the are are Passport CG also with 50% off Sun-thurs.

P.A. appears to be the way to go for discount camping in PA, particularly along the Turnpike.

3000 miles in three days? I would so be suffering from TB (tired behind) at the 1/2 way point. Still with a new camper at the end of the trip I would probably tough it out. Would want a few days to recover before the return trip, sounds like a good excuse to take Carols suggestion to do a little BC camping time for R&R.
