I bought both of our toy haulers in USA and imported into Canada. Traded the first on the second. I might trade again in which case the selling question goes away. But if I do sell, would I get a better price selling in Canada or USA?

Sell truck with TH too? There may be a Class C in my future in which case won't need the truck.

I assume you bought the truck in CA ???? if so will it pass US requirements? from your post I can't really tell if your RV is a TT. 5er, etc.

Yes, the truck is Canadian. I don't know if it meets USA standards - the speedometer is metric.

As far as the border goes, yes, it will be quite a while until it's open. That might discourage USA buyers.

The speedometer is close to the bottom of the concern list. Think truck emissions. Looking for a bigger RV?

I would try to sell it in Canada as it has been shall we say imported and clear customs. That is worth dollars!
More buyers could be north of the borders as most RVs are built south of the border.

The truck has DEF - I think that's the same as a US truck.

Yeah, BIGGER RV.

No, actually smaller RV. I had to give up my Class A driver's license so I'm not legal for this rig anymore. I hadn't intended to drive it anymore (just leave it in Florida) but we were so paranoid in March about getting home without contact that we brought it instead of staying in motels.

As a general comment or two, just got back from our RV dealer (RV in for repairs), he indicated that he has been extremely busy and new RV's from the factory are scarce because of demand. Also, auto dealers are scooping up used trucks and exporting them to the US because of demand (and probably a lower C$). Might be a good time to make the moves!

If your truck uses DEF I'll bet it would pass emission testing in the US, both countries have the same standards.

almcc,

Saskatchewan doesn't do yearly or periodic checks on emissions. So it may be better to say "it depends on where you are".
