Almost everything you need to know is at the RIV site.

You will need to check BC's rules for registering the trailer. How old it is , what documentation you have and whether or not it has A/C all make a difference.

If you have a TITLE and bill of sale, customs is easy and straight forward. A/C will cost you $100 in extra taxes to import. Less than 15 years old it will cost about $250 to go through the RIV paperwork. The trailer must be washed including the underneath before crossing to meet Agriculture Canada rules.

If you provide some details and ask a few more specifics we should be able to walk you through it.

Edited: just realized you said NEW Scamp missed the NEW in all the block caps. That changes a few things. RIV is mandatory.

Registry
If it has NEVER been registered in the U.S., you SHOULD have little trouble getting it across that 49th!! Some RV dealers chose to register vehicles in their names before sale is completed. IF this is the case with you, the vehicle will need to have cleared U.S. registry before entry into Canada ia allowed. EVERYTHING needs to be "all in a row, lined up and ALL paperwork DONE" before you get to the border. MANY importers here feel that the Sumas/Huntington crossing (for whatever reason) is easier to get across.
