Question Importing Sprinter Westphalia into Canada?

I have recently moved from the US to Canada and want to import my 2005 Airstream Dodge Sprinter Westphalia.... but the Canadain government does not list it as an importable or a non-importable vehical. Does anyone have any experience importing one of these? Happy and safe holiday traveling. Terry

I bought this 2006 Sprinter Cab and Chassis new in Grand Rapids, Michigan and imported it to Canada with no trouble whatsoever.

If needed, I can hunt down the details but it was easy and painless and cost very little.

The Westfalia is able to be exported to Canada because it is a used and previously titled vehicle. The only issue was exporting a new untitled Westfalia. We currently have the same issue with New Interstates because it is not on the approved list.

How do you know?

Thank you Patrick..... How do you know it can be imported if it is used and titled? Do you know where that is said in the Canadian regulations? I believe you, and I want to know where I can see that in Canadian guidelines, if you know? Thanks heaps! Terry
