I always like to stop in at the duty-free whenever I am crossing - both directions. I've never had any troubles bringing reasonable amounts of drinking pleasure.

We did lose a nice piece of prime Alberta beef to the US folks at Chief Mountain a few years ago.

Sorry to hear that Pat! We do have some of the best beef in the world here!

I don't think they allow tow vehicles larger than minivans into their country.

What's the point of your comment? Are you trying to live up to a stereotype?

We just came back from there this week. We make the trip to Canada often, ( hubby is Canadian) you need passports, proof of rabies vaccines for each dog. No fruits to veggies at all, store bought meats are fine. There are so many nice farm stands on the sides of the road in Canada, you don't want to bother bringing your own anyway. One Case or bottle of alcohol per adult, on the way to Canada. You can buy more than on the way back to the US, but be prepared to pay duty on the extras. Also, coming into the US now there is an RV lane make sure you are in it. They will usually look inside (for people) leaving Canada.
Now for the fun part, you must try Swiss Chalet for the chicken sandwich ( with gravy) it's amazing! At a local grocery store buy some pea meal sausages and grill them...again amazing! The food is often better in Canada, less preservatives in food and high fructose is illegal there... Hickory sticks, smokey bacon, and ketchup chips are a must try.. As well as Sleeman Cream Ale beer and Kokanee if you can find them! Have a great trip.

And you can take 2 bottles of wine if there are 2 adults..and frozen fruit is not a problem. Just declare the wine when they ask, as long as they know it's for you and not a gift you should be fine.

Sorry to get my hackles up, but there as been a trend on this forum by some Americans to make jabs about Canadians and our choices of tow vehicles at every opportunity. It gets old after a while.

Better yet, try the local microbrews that can be found in virtually every region you might travel through. Craft breweries are producing some great stuff. And if you're in any of the wine producing regions, be sure to check out the local vineyards and sample the local wines.
