I used UShip when we purchased our TT from the manufacturer. I posted what I wanted to move and the bis came in. Worked great. (I used a guy who used biodiesel so his price was almost half of what the others were). He didn't have to knock when he arrived, I could smell the french fries when he pulled into the driveway [emoticon]

Maybe your campground has some back area that they could move the trailer to instead of paying for a serviced lot. Many campgrounds will store your camper in a storage yard for you, maybe they could do the same for you at a much reduced rate.

Maybe someone down there could move it to a storage lot for you. Be cheaper than a rv site.

There are always local guys who have a business hauling RVs. you can find them on Craigslist, or RV parks can suggest somebody. Make sure they are bonded, etc, of course.

In my experience it generally works out to about $1 a mile., when you factor in their gas two ways, meals, motels, etc.


3/4 timing in a DIY van conversion. Backroads, mountains, boondocking, sometimes big cities for a change of pace.

The question is do you ever plan on going back there? If not it makes sense to ship it back or sell as is. If you plan on going back you should be able to find cheaper storage. If you ship it back and decide to go back you will have to double tow (if able)have it shipped back or make two trips.

Yes, onsite storage is another option we're considering. The RV park has a storage lot - it's a motorcycle friendly park so there are many cargo trailers in the winter season.

Joe, my crowd delivers autos from Ft Lauderdale to NY city but Canada might be a bit further than our drivers would want to go. Something they don't like about crossing into Mexico and Canada. (mainly Mexico I think) I would not even want to give you a price on crossing the border. You might think I have lost my mind

Would it be realistic for Joe to meet somebody at the border?

If the trailer was bought in the usa things will get complicated
It eould have to be imported into Canada. Only a commercial transporter can bring it into Canada. The border is closed for anyone that is not a commercial trucking company. You will ned a customs broker. Is the golf cart Canadian?
