I've imported several vehicles as a collector so if you need info on importing, give me a shout. I live in Kelowna. You don't need to go thru RIV since the coach is over 15 years old. You will have to pay GST at the border you cross and you will also have to contact the US Customs at the border you cross and have a copy of the title faxed to them at least 72 hours prior to crossing into canada. Without that, they will not allow you to export it. You will have to have original to produce to US customs at port of exit that you faxed the copy to.

When you get to the Canadian side you will have to have stamped title in hand, bill of sale and will fill out an import form, which is quite simple. Make sure the manufacturers US DOT compliance plate is visible for Customs to see, pay your GST and off you go. You will need to contact ICBC immediately upong entering Canada in BC and get a Temp Operating Permit to drive to an inspection station. Then it's off to your icbc agent with all the paperwork to register it. I'm retired from the RCMP so let me know if you need anything else.

Good luck...Keith

Default Importing My Newell

Keith

I'll sleep well tonight, thanks for the reassurance. I did enough research to feel pretty comfortable with the importing process, however, you have made it more than just theory. It's a fact, given the coach is more than 15 years old, we do not need to go through RIV. Cheers.

Welcome to the Newell crowd. I think you will find this forum to be extremely beneficial.

I have made many good friends here. I also find the information offered up is much more likely to be accurate than on other generic RV forums. I was going to say less nut cases here, but some would consider most of us pretty nutty.

Please don't hesitate to post your questions as they come.

thank you all, I'm totally excited to get to know you all and the details of our coach. My wife and I will fly to Chicago in May and drive her home, stopping at The Gorge in Washington State for the 4 day Sasquatch music festival.

I'm a music guy. Play in a band and manage a band called Pull InCase of Fire. My son is the singer/writer.

Hey Blue Sky:

We spent a week in Kelowna, BC two years ago with our Newell. We stayed at Apple Orchard RV Park which only has 10 spots, but plenty good for us. As I recall there is a big lake nearby. lol. Gorgeous country and we loved all of it. May have heard some of your music. Very cool. We sold our Newell this year, but we won't quit reliving the memories, stimulated by postings such as yours. Enjoy your really nice looking 83. Our 92 had lap belts, and maybe you can call Newell to see about installation of seat belts. Those windshield are pretty big and pretty close to you.

Thanks David

This is gorgeous country, for sure. I will check with Newell and other RV Service Centers re lap belts. Keep the music flowing.
