    Importing PWC and trailer into Canada

    I have been looking for information on what i need to do to import a pwc trailer into canada from the states and im getting alot of mixed opinions. I imported a seadoo rx last year without a trailer and only needed a bill of sale and no notice. I have tried to get ahold of both sides of the border but am not getting much luck. I have read that some border requirements are different than others. Has anyone imported into New brunswick? On the site it says trailers are exempt from the 72 hour notice because they are not self-propelled. It would be much easier if the guy would sell the rxp without the trailer but wants to get rid of the trailer same time.

    You can bring it across with the PWC. You do need to follow the RIV process and pay the RIV fee which is $220 ish and have the trailer inspected at an accredited facility. I have used Canandian Tire in the past, they just verifiy the serial number.

    Ok, so do i need to give either sides of the border 72 hours notice for either the pwc or trailer? also do i need a recall letter for the trailer?

    the pwc does not need 72 hours and if the site says that the trailor does not need it then you are good to go but you will have to take the trailor to canadian tire to have it safety checked to be able to put it on the road.

    You do not need a 72 hour notice. But make sure the trailer has the manufacture vin sticker or you will have issues and the border. Make sure u have titles for both.
