Selling our 5th wheel to a US citizen

Happy New Year!!
We are trying to sell our 2015 5th wheel, which we originally purchased from a US dealer, and we have a person from the US interested in buying it. Has anyone done this before and if so what is the process? I know bringing it up to Canada wasn't a very big hassle and hopefully it won't be too hard to sell back to the United States. Thanks for your time.

I would suggest you make the transaction down here in the states south of the boarder. Documentation is partitive, You probably already are aware of the exchange rate. Keep in mind the bank transaction fees for processing payment money.
Each state has different transfer processing ,sales tax when transferring/ registering ,etc. the buyer will be aware of that.

Cliff has a good idea. Do the deal in the buyer's State if possible because that will minimize the paperwork headaches.

I sold our Class A coach to a couple in Washington.
You just need to sign over your registration. It's a good idea to have a Bill of Sale done up as well.
They need to do their own paperwork on their end.
The purchaser has to bring the 5th wheel through the border themselves. Paperwork has to be filed with Customs.
The good thing is the 5th wheel was purchased in the US and will have met all requirements prior to coming to Canada.
As to the purchase price and payment, the Agreement to Sale document stated the amount in Canadian I wanted. This way, with the fluctuating CAD, I didn't have to worry about being the one losing in the transfer. The major portion was done using a Foreign Exchange bank transfer process in CaaD as the Banks would take an additional 2% on top of the exchange if done in USD.
On pickup of the coach, they paid the final remaining amount to make up the final portion of the payment calculated on the days exchange rate.

If you have more questions, PM me and I'll explain my process and methodology.

Thanks for the info. I was hoping to deliver the 5er to the person in the States. Is that possible or do they have to come up to meet me at the border?

I believe they have to file the paperwork at Customs and admit the 5er to the US.

You can always call US Customs to varify.

The DMV in the US will want to see the previous owner's title/registration documents/bill of sale. If it is Canadian, they will ask for documents from US Customs before they will register it. Best bet is to call US Customs and ask what is needed. I am sure there is no duty, probably no fees at all. Just the paperwork. You may have to show that the unit meets US DOT requirements.
