Import export !

Hi folks
This is an unusual situation ! In 1998 we exported an Airstream 270 motorhome from South Carolina to the UK , since then it has now come to rest in Portugal . In the meantime my daughter and her American husband have moved to Seattle and I need a granny annexe . Since the bus is sitting around here falling into some disrepair I am considering re-importing it to the US which may well work out more economical that building a cabin in their back yard and or course we can fix it up and travel around , and it will be an appreciating assets . BUT !! how on earth do I set about doing this ? Any suggestions of a starting point would be much appreciated !
Thank you !

You can certainly get it back from Southampton or Zeebruge. RORO ferry is cheapest to Galveston.

BTW - memories of a very happy holiday out in Isle de Tavira and the Sunshine Bar, probably early 90s. Cool place.

You could probably get it back for about 3.5k. If it's in disrepair, you will obviously need to spend a fair amount to get her roadworthy again.
