    Default Importing a trailer from the USA

    Has anyone imported a trailer from the US to Canada. Found a few good deals even with the dollar is so bad. Went to customs today and asked the duties, taxes etc...
    There was PST, GST, $200 rege fee. Rege fee ??? Money grab..
    Is this correct

    Been there done that. Yes have to pay $204.75 CDN (including GST) to the border clerk,to have trailer Federally inspected later by a certified shop. I went to Canadian Tire with paper work, and the guy spent more time filling out the paperwork than inspecting the trailer !! All tolled took about 15 min. If said trailer is 15 or more years older, rusty, and ready to fall apart, no inspection, and no FEE >> it is EXEMPT!! Make sure the trailer has a 14-16 VIN # as well as a safety recall clearance letter ( a letter with vin# stating all safety recalls have been done or none issued for said trailer) from the original manufacturer. Trailer MUST HAVE VIN !!!

    Ya this sounds like to much hassel for a trailer.
    Picked up a set of plans off ebay for a double trailer. I have good welding experance and have built many utility trailers so I will give this one a go.
    Will take some pictures of the build and post them..
