Hi Bex

just in my experience - prices are always higher in canada - there are just fewer airstreams and argosys available and it saves you the hassle of importing... which really isn't a hassle and doesn't cost too much except the HST and some fees to import (<300$). It's just your time for travelling to view etc. Good luck in your search!!

Yes I built the cabinets and dinette, using red oak for the frames and maple for the inserts. The axles are right at the limit, meaning they have a slight positive angle. I'm hoping to get by for a year or two before biting the bullet. I will install new shocks this year, I'm betting the installed ones are the original.

Bex ... Good morning... Importing from the US is a piece of cake... only pay PST on the purchased price... no 300 fee... we have imported a car and trailer from the US and also sold our other Argosy to a person in Calif... no problems either way.

Heres the issue for us with inspecting/importing from the USA.
We are English, living as permanent residents in Canada (fully legal I might add)
We were not aware that our permanent resident (paper) visa was abolished in 2002 in preference to a card, which we do not have yet. We cannot therefore visit the USA without a whole lot of red tape. Its not the leaving, its the getting back. So going to the USA is not yet an option for us.
But when I have the card, just try and stop me!
