We have been trying to buy a 2008 BOUNDER 35H or 35E for the last five months. The dealers here in Alberta Canada will not budge more than 10% if that. We have found some good deals in the US. Is there anything we should be aware of in bring back a coach to Canada? What about CSA approval? The dealers here want to charge us between $1,500 to $5,000 just for CSA approval. They also mentioned that our insurance could be void if we do not. The Salepeople have told so many untruths, we do not trust them. Any information would be greatly appreicated. THANKS!!

Consider calling Bounder and ask for their advise. You may be able to get one made for you to Canada's standards and sold to you by a USA dealer. There must be a process you can follow. Maybe the Canadain Gov't web site can help.

Motorhome should already be csa approved.
It will need daytime running lights.

If you have a trade in, keep in mind that you dont get the tax break that you would get in Canada.

Tax is charged on the total value of motorhome not the difference between trade in.

Gst is paid at the border. Paperwork has to be sent to the border 72 hours before you arrive. Also make sure you stop at US customs before you cross to Canadian customs or else they will send you back across.

I beleive any warranty work will have to be done in USA until 12K miles, and can be done in Canada after 12K and 12months??
<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content"> It will need daytime running lights. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>...and be in KMS/hr

I would RUN not Walk from this dealer(and NEVER) go back.

State tax should not apply, as this vehicle is being Exported to Canada,... where you'll really pay the tax. Oh well, least the buck is still close to par....

Check out http://www.riv.ca/english/html/how_to_import.html If it is the same process as the trailer I am looking at it is well worth the effort. Fill out your forms from their site, get a letter of compliance from the manufacture, pay taxes at border or within 45 days and have Canadian Tire do the inspection. Inspection costs covered in original paperwork fees.
