Canada/US border crossing

This summer my family will be setting out on a 25 day trip from Southern California to Banff/Lake Louise/Jasper. Along the way we will be stopping at Crater Lake, Seattle and Coeur D Alene, Idaho. I will be crossing into Canada from Idaho at the Eastport/Kingsgate entry on the way up and re-enter the US via the Coutts/Sweetgrass port of entry. I understand all the regulations regarding foods, weapons and animals, however my big concern is what lane to be in and if there is adequate room to cross with my toe car. I understand that some border crossings may have zig zagging concrete barriers that you must navigate and I wondered if any of you had some experiences with these ports of entry. I will be in a 31 foot class A and be towing a Honda Fit. I also have a global entry which I am not sure if it will work at a border crossing but it does give me fast access at an airport entering the US. Thanks in advance for all your help.

I have crossed at both of these with my 40' DSDP and CRV toad. No problems, just follow the RV signs.
