Canadian buying American skoolie (taxes,insurance,reg)?
I am a Canadian looking to purchase a fully converted American skoolie (R/V).
I was wondering if anyone here has done that before or knows what the process would be.
I need to know how to register it (what documentation I need, safety? etc), how to get temp insurance/plates (and what insurance companies offer short term to get it back over the border), sales taxes in state, cost to change the ownership (if any), duty at the border (if applicable) etc.
I am looking at one that is for sale currently and have the money to purchase it but I need to figure out how much all of this extra will cost and what the procedure is. I definitely don't want to wait until I have made the trip south and get slammed with unexpected costs or requirement for documentation I don't have with me.
Complicated right? I know. This is why I am asking. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
