Just Saying Hi

Hello all. I'm new to the forums, and new to airstreams. I spent a week in one and now I have to have one. I'm not new to being a Friend of Dorothy. My partner of three years and I live in VT and are looking to buy our first trailer and start roaming about meeting new and interesting people. If any of you pass this way, stop in and say hi.

Welcome from the other end of the continent! There are lots of knowledgeable and friendly people here, so if you have questions don't be afraid to ask!

Canada, eh? I'm only about 2 hours from the border. We plan to visit when we get our trailer. Is it difficult to get across the border with a trailer?

I love VT, what area are you from? A daughter went to school in Bennington.

On the eastern side about midway up the state. About 2 hours from Bennington.

You need a passport or enhanced drivers license and get a letter or card from your car insurance company stating that your TV is covered in Canada and it covers your trailer for liability. Also don't take any fruit, unlabeled pet foods or guns. If you have pets bring proof of rabies vaccinations (many campgrounds require you be able to show this upon request in the US probably only if there is an incident with your pet). Other then that it's pretty easy at least the last time I went.

I've been told that groceries in general are better left behind and can just as easily be picked up once over the boarder. Sounds like a simple enough solution. Propane tanks and the like are ok? Will they want to inspect the trailer?

You can bring dry goods, just don't try fresh foods like meat, fruit and vegetables. But we do have grocery stores all over Canada, so supplies shouldn't be a problem. Propane tanks are the same here as there, so not an issue. They may want to inspect the trailer but won't necessarily do so. It will depend on the situation. A customs officer may think your sketchy and want to check, or he may just want to see inside an Airstream. There's no way of predicting what they'll do at the border - I think it all depends on your own behaviour while being questioned. Just be polite, try not to act suspicious and you should be okay. And, as mentioned, please leave the guns at home.

Flirting would be hit or miss. Save that for after you're safely across the border. Nothing worse than a pissed off customs agent.

I traveled over the border a couple of years ago from upstate NY to Quebec and had no problems at all. They border crossing guy was very nice, not a lot of questions, sailed right through. BTW Montreal and Quebec are awesome!!
