The IRS mileage rate this year is 54.5 cents per mile for the vehicle use alone. Your time and other expenses are not included.

Thank you for the many replies. Fortunately we do not have to consider the option of shipping a trailer from the midwest since (unfortunatley) the deal could not be done.

You are right...the adventure of going there and bringing it back to the west coast through the southern states would have been great...especially since we are into doom and gloom of grey skies and rain in Vancouver.

But....as some have commented in other posts....the exchange rate was the ultimate killer....and the figures didn't "add up" when compared to buying new.

Thanks again everyone...hope the input from others can assist someone in the end.

Merry Xmas

Russ
