Some countries let you drive it for 90 days and then it must leave the country or at least not driven anymore.

As a resident of Costa Rica you can import one Handicapped vehicle if you are handicapped every 5 years with no duties. Can't imagine the value of a Skoolie with a handicap lift finished out and Mountain Driving equipped.

We shipped our shortie to England from Charleston, SC RoRo for around $3000.
Then we shipped it to Seattle from Tokyo, and that was $7,000.
The key thing for RoRo is the cube measurement, that determines how much you pay. We put big racks on the roof before understanding this, and wound up cutting them down (lowering) to reduce the height.
If you want to PM me, I can offer more specifics on caveats and whatnot for shipping and also insurance for Europe.
We are working on a trip to South America in a couple of years, and will either be shipping to Buenos Aires or home from there.
It's pretty cool to get a photo of your bus from one of the crew members en route, btw!

I tried getting mine shipped from Maryland to Louisiana and couldnt find a quote for less than $2000, so overseas will probably be pretty pricey!

This is some thing I m interested in as well. There is a company called POP Yachts. They sell used boats and RV's they are out of Tampa, Florida. I know they ship boats all over the world and although i didn't work the RV side, I have to assume they can do that as well. They would also have a Prep to Ship Pack which would detail what needs to be do to the unit before shipping. They you need to know what needs to be done as far a s inspections and getting rolling in the host country.

I see that this was originally post in 2016 Wondering if you already made the trip?

Also you are not allowed to pack it with all types of things.

The idea being able to charge for even more onboard stowage...
A dedicated smuggler could find plenty of places to stuff contraband into on a Skoolie!

When I saw the post from the guy from Hamburg, I thought why not take all the seats out of it and contract the interior as shipping space to recoup some of the cost?that may complicate something already complicated.

Regarding import restrictions and fees: Remove the engine and import it as “steel sculpture”

Edit: disregard my entire post
