No Longer For Sale

21ft bigfoot trailer (25b21fb). 4 season package, ac, fantastic fan, fridge & freezer, stove/oven, furnace, dry bath with tub/shower, cellular blinds, stereo with outdoor speakers, skylight with shade, outdoor shower, equalizer hitch, lots of storage.

This trailer is in excellent condition and was just de-winterized and had a thorough check up at the rv place. New battery, roof vents etc all replaced or resealed as recommended along with other items. Tires in great shape and 75% on the brakes. (Invoice can be viewed). Have owners manual and appliance manuals. Selling so we can get a truck camper and tow our boat.
Located in ladysmith Vancouver island.
28500 CAD

Canadian Trailers Titled in the US

Hi. Very interested in your 25B21FB. I've heard conflicting descriptions of buying a trailer in Canada by US citizens and what needs to be done to get them titled in the states in which they live. Can anyone please clarify whether this is a difficult proposition and maybe describe the process of getting a travel trailer from a Canadian seller titled in the US?

Thanks!

Hi There,

I bought my Bigfoot B19 from a Canadian dealer in 2007 and it was a very easy process. They had to make sure that it passed all safety inspections for propane and lights and got a tag (sticker on the trailer) to indicate as much from the Canadian Department of Transportation. They signed the title over to me after payment, as well as providing a temporary registration (which again was from the Canadian Department of Transportation). I took the title and sale documents and had no trouble crossing over and getting it registered and licensed in the U.S.

A few phone calls to the Canadian Department of Transportation and Border Crossing should help confirm what current requirements are and how to ensure that you meet them, but it should not be too difficult. Wonderful to have an opportunity to visit beautiful Canada! Enjoy your new travel trailer if you do go through with the purchase!

Buying a trailer in Canada, and bringing it back, is relatively easy.
If you enlarge the picture of the big foot being sold, you can see a sticker just above the storage compartment. That sticker says that the trailer meets US Federal regulations etc. When you purchase the trailer, the seller will have to cancel their insurance (provided through the Province) and, in conjunction with that, you will be given a bill of sale and their version of the title. You will need to show those documents at the border crossing and they will want to see the sticker that I just referred to.
The biggest problem you may encounter is the actual payment. You are limited to no more than $10,000 in cash when you cross the border. Therefore, you will need to find out from the seller if they are willing to take a certified check or cashiers check. Depending on your bank, you may be able to do a wire transfer, but that can be a lengthy process, i.e. now t done in the day.
Let me know if you have any questions. Ron

A cashier's check is considered cash.

Not anymore, I haven't accepted a cashier's check same as cash for several years.

It's been that way for a while now, at least in the areas of the globe that I do business in.

I think it was tied into the fact that you can put a stop payment on a cashier check now.

Regs change.

It's not the same as cash also because the check can be fraudulent.

From Wikipedia:

A*cashier's check*or cheque is a cheque guaranteed by a bank, drawn on the bank's own funds and signed by a*cashier. ... So the bank can discover that a*check*is fraudulent weeks after the customer has withdrawn the funds, and the customer is then legally liable for the*cash*already withdrawn.

Hi
I believe it's same as a double bed. 74" long. All the specs are on their website. They list dry weight as 4450 lbs.

I will repeat that according to the Canada Border Services Agency, cheques are considered cash. As are stocks, bonds and more. Looks current to me. Nothing to do with you. I am referring to crossing the border with payment for a trailer.

Over $10,000CAD must be declared at the border which includes checks and other instruments. I was asked at the border about cashier's checks and had several thousand worth but less than $10,000.
