RV cross border transportation

We are snowbirds living in our RV in Alberta. I wanted to check if anyone has transported their truck and RV across the border at the couts border crossing south of Lethbridge? Would possibly be interested in doing this, but not sure where to start? The unit would be trucked across, then we would fly to the USA to meet up with it. Would like to know if anyone knows a good transport company in Calgary or Lethbridge, or somewhere in the southern Alberta that is in this business?would you fly commercial or charter? Where would be the closest location across the USA border you could meet up with your unit? It would be nice if someone knew of a company that could arrange the entire job. Transport, flights, etc. Also what would you think a fair price would be to do this? Greatly appreciated if someone could help us out?

In light of the brain surgeons running our government still refusing admittance to vaccinated Canadians, are you sure that flight accommodations can legally be made?

Flights should not be an issue.

What kind of rv? Your shipping the truck and the trailer?

I’d put your year and model of truck and trailer in your signature

There are several different companies that do this. We have a local company that will transport your truck and trailer across. However……it is expensive. You can not have any personal items in either vehicle such as clothing, medicines, or food. You can have towel and bedding.
You can fly down and meet up with your equipment.
Our friends did this so they could pick up their stuff from their cabin in the USA. They had to fill out a ton of paperwork, do a Covid test (negative) and file a plan.
Google snowbird RV transport.
