Hi Donna....thanks for the comment. I believe that 10 pictures are shown in the original post. If you cannot see them or open them, please let me know. If you mean more pictures beyond the original 10 in this post, we certainly have lots of pictures and would be happy to email additional pictures. Let us know. All the best, Denis

Armida....yes, we could drive over to Buffalo and meet you there. Regarding the details of transfer of ownership papers etc. I'm not sure. Can someone who is familiar with this please advise? Thanks, Denis

Hi Armida,

I've bought two trailers in Canada and brought them back to the US, where I live. I found that since the trailer is over 25 years old, and non-motorized - and because of NAFTA - US customs really does not care about it, beyond you having a bill of sale with you.

What can be the tricky part is YOUR individual state of residence. My state (not Texas) required quite a few hoops (special customs forms and importation, Canadian TOD (transfer of ownership document), etc etc.) It wasn't difficult, just a bunch of paperwork and steps.

That said, from what I've read most states are MUCH less demanding. So the key is going to your state's DMV website, or contacting them, and finding out exactly what they will require so that you can title it in your state (if your state titles this sort of trailer; some don't require or issue titles for small trailers).

Note that Canadians don't have "titles" like we (usually) do, but instead have "ownership." So what we would think of as the registration document is the important one (ownership). Also, Canadians need to keep their license plates and turn them in for insurance reasons, so you would need to bring your own plate (or see if your state has a temporary "trip permit" for buying new vehicles or moving unregistered vehicles - not many do but if yours is one of them they are very handy).

Also, if you're a life-long southerner, keep in mind that you might have snowy roads, depending on when you go.

Not trying to discourage you at all - Bolers and Canadians are both fine things Just find out from your DMV before you go.

Thank you to all. It is a bit overwhelming. Texas does have a temporary permit, but since I don't have a passport, I'd have to see what they'd require about purchasing a Canadian trailer in Buffalo, NY where I have family. Regards and best of luck for a quick sale. Armida
