By any chance were you originally dealing with Colton RV in Wheatfield NY? Just wondering because that sounds like something they would try.

Avoid Florida for sure......I got nailed Florida sales tax that I was not aware of until later. I used Percy H. Davis for a broker because I use them all the time for my business shipments. Went flawlessly. You need to confirm the coach you are importing is allowed into Canada. You have to make sure you have the recall letters from the coach manufacturer and the chassis manufacurer to confirm that any recalls were corrected. Percy H. Davis collected the 5% GST at the border. You then take it in for a safety inspection. You then can go get plates and pay the 5% PST. You then can take it any time to Canadian Tire for the RIV inspection where they just confirm the labelling of serial numbers and tire info. is correct on the labelling by the drivers seat on the wall. They also confirm it has day time running lights.
Then from there it happy sailin'.
The taxes really added up
5% GST
5% PST
7% Florida Tax (I think it was 7%....I'm trying to forget about it)

No not Colton, although I didn't get a warm fuzzy feeling from them when I did contact them. THanks again for your help everyone. Love this forum!

I just bought one in arizona,all you pay is the gst at the border,since you are a canadian citizen,
make sure you have all your paperwork in place,eg bill of sale,fax to us border 36 hrs prior,vechicle must be admissable rand a letter of no recall on vechile,
don't let those canadian guards at the border intimidate you
also try and buy privately in us to skip the tax
good luck and you can get recall letter from manufacturer.
most important stay away from costal cities,salt air is worst than what you have in ontario
