Canadian registering a motorhome in Montana

We are in the process of buying a motorhome and wonder if it is possible for a Canadian to register and insure a motorhome stateside rather than registering in BC.
Primarily(85%) the MH will be housed and used in USA.
Will I have any issues when trying to travel into Canada with the unit as a Canadian with a USA registered vehicle?

Thanks for the input.

Yes you will have to pay all federal and provincial taxes to enter Canada with a USA registered coach.

As soon as you present your passport at the border , the questions will start , about why your driving a US registered vehicle .
Montana LLC won't work for Canadians . Been there , almost got suckered in by the dealership in Montana.

I believe you may also have a problem driving a US licensed vehicle with your BC driver's license. Another concern would be insurance coverage.

I should have mentioned , that the Montana vehicle sales agreement used to be a two sided document that only required a signature on the front .

If you are purchasing a coach in Montana , make sure you read both sides of the document AND detail every promise the salesman made on the document before you sign .
