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
