I believe anything over 25 years old is exempt from having to meet any DOT standards. I know you can bring in anything from Canada under that same 25+ years old rule.

I think the boat probable has left already with the Aruba on it, as this thread started 7 years ago.

I do not have detailed info on how they ship, but I met a couple from Germany who ship their RV to the US and travel the US for 6 months, then go to Canada or Mexico for a few months before getting another visa and return to the US. They do this every 3-4 years. They told me it is cheaper to transport their class C than to rent one.

Not surprised. Since just about everything moves in containers on ships these days & the ships have gotten larger (holding more containers) the cost of transporting a container unit has dropped greatly from just 15 years ago.
