If you don't want to pay import duty, plus international shipping, you can check Can-Am RV.

I ordered some Walbernize from them yesterday, really nice guys and very helpful.

Along the same lines, is there an online shop that sells accessories in canada, similar to I was at 2 or 3 of the local RV dealers today and couldn't beleive the prices they were charging for certain items.

Additionally, if you do order things from the states, if you can reques that they ship via USPS (US Postal), there are no brokerage fees and if it is an American made product there should be no duty charged, just GST. Avoid UPS at all costs, your item could cost you double what it should simply due to their brokerage fees.

UPS are not Canadian friendly. They charge a huge fee to do the brokerage and are arbitrary about it. We work as hard as anyone for our wages and to then have UPS take advantage of us because we live north of the 49th is unacceptable. Living ten minutes north of the border, and spending much of our recreation time in the US, we have a drop box service in WA that we can leverage but for those who do not, FedEx, US postal service and pretty much anyone else are far superior to UPS in my humble opinion. For those who wonder, a $13 car part that with exchange and shipping was under $30,cost an additional $60 for UPS brokerage for a total of $90. The second piece of the shipment, the twin part and value and shipped UPS to my WA address, that I picked up and brought across and paying Canadian customs and taxes, cost me a total of $31. Sadly many US suppliers feel locked in to using UPS and are often unwilling to consider our issue with UPS. Barry

I found this place that has a pretty extensive catalogue. I've not ordered from them yet, so I don't know what their service is like.
