It was quite an adventure getting it here and registered, so I would be happy to provide some information to make the journey easier for you or anyone else looking to bring a new Boler baby home from Canada:
What you need:
• the trailer's registration
(Canada's form of "title") from the owner
• bill of sale - signed by you and owner. I hand wrote mine, and the DMV didn't love it, so I would recommend printing out a template to make it look more official.
• proof of the trailer's weight
(if the trailer doesn't say how much it weighs on it, you can get a document from a weighing
station ). I did this after I got home.
• clearance document from the US customs. The Homeland Security WILL stop you to check you, the trailer, and needed documents (registration/bill of sale) out before providing you the clearance document.
The folks at the border told me that I would also have to get an inspection by the state patrol before I could register the trailer. Don't fret - this is no longer required. If you have the 4 items above, you can go straight to the DMV.
I would recommend calling your local DMV department of licensing to confirm all required documents before heading to Canada. Mine starting talking about having something notarized, and I rose a stink because I told him that their office did not tell me that was one of the needed items. Go to the office you call for information to register your trailer. And be sure to get the name of the person you talked to. This saved me.
One other thing I learned. If you are planning on storing your trailer, the storage companies require that it is registered. This blew my plan of waiting a week or two after I got home to do that.
Certainly more hoops than if you purchased a trailer in the states, but it is totally doable, and worth a sweet/special Boler.
Let me know if you have any other questions. I would love to see how your search turns out.
