We asked DMV in Florida about registering 2 of our Canada registered vehicles in Florida and they said we have to get the vehicles inspected at a specific place and after, just bringing the inspection to DMV we register it with no problem .

If you have a Canadian address and if you're spending time in Canada every year, then there's nothing to stop you from keeping the trailer registered in Canada for a while. Do check if there is a time limit on this, especially if you're planning on keeping the trailer in the US permanently.

I've done this with cars in the past, and once you understand the process, it is actually quite painless.

The suggestion to avoid Detroit is a good one, but not mandatory. The problem with Detroit is southbound I-75. If you choose to cross at Detroit, I suggest I-94 west to US-23 then south. You can reconnect with I-75 south of Toledo. Since your AS was made in the US there is no problem bringing back to the US. (All AS are and were made in the US.) CBP will be interested in the contents. Make sure there is nothing illegal inside. If someone other than the owner is towing it and the owner is not present, a notarized statement from the owner acknowledging this is being done with their consent is a really good idea. Also, a copy of the up to date registration and a valid license on the unit will be needed.

If you are going to register and plate it in FL you will pay for title and registration. If there was an ownership change you will also have to pay Florida Sales tax. If there is no ownership transfer just simply different plates on the TV and Trailer no one will bother you. Just have the proper paperwork at ready.
Just keep renewing on line in their respective localities.
I have been doing it for 15 years. By and register Truck in Illinois and the Air -stream in Florida.

Here is a link you will find useful. In summary, it's easy and no bond required but you do have to jump through a couple hoops. Please don't take advice from the lady at the DMV...

If you buy it in Ontario Canada and do not import it to the United States you will have to pay tax 13%. I understand if you register it in Ontario at your Canadian address you cannot get that tax back. Importing a former US vehicle to the US is not that difficult - I did it hundreds of times in my former career. A customs broker will handle it for you for a few hundred bucks or you can do it yourself if it is for personal use and you can avoid the 13% Canadian tax that way. If you are buying it from Canam in London I am sure they can guide you on this.

An update on this topic I thank everyone and at the same time my apologies because I haven't let you know the results of my wife driving our Airstream from Canada to the United States, it was really easy all they asked was about our belongings inside all the normal questions but that was it ,
The funny thing was, we had all the insurance, purchase papers truck papers anything they could need and they didn't even bother to ask for them thanks God everything was smooth and quick. Thank you all again for your response now we have it parked on our house ready for the next adventure
