cartoon motorhome graphicTravelers entering Canada, hoping to dodge a few extra dollars in taxes, ended up paying significantly more after their schemes were uncovered by Canada Border Services Agents at border crossings in North Portal and the Estevan Highway in March of this year.

CBSA agents report a Saskatchewan resident importing a motorhome declared its value at US$21,500.

CBSA officers conducted a routine secondary examination and found an Internet listing for the motorhome and after contacting the sellers, determined the motorhome had actually been purchased for US$36,500 and therefore had been undervalued at the port by $15,000.

The motorhome was seized and returned to the purchaser after he had paid a penalty of $8,485.13 to retrieve it. If the motorhome had been correctly declared, the taxes owing would have amounted to just over $771.

RV Camping FamilyGo RVing has joined forces with The Travel Channel to feature a family RV vacation in a fully-integrated episode of one of its most popular series, “Trip Flip,” RVIA announced today. The show will follow “professional fun-seeker” and travel expert Bert Kreischer and one family on a three-day RV vacation.

Starting its third season, Bert spontaneously selects a family and surprises them with an on-the-spot vacation offer. The show will travel to the Flagstaff/Grand Canyon area where the RV integration will allow the family to enjoy vacation activities in scenic locations while experiencing hassle-free travel with all the comforts of home. The episode will feature scenes both inside and out of the RV.

Responding to Go RVing’s request for vehicles, a lottery was held in early December where a Holiday Rambler Vacationer motorhome offered by Navistar RV was randomly chosen as the vehicle for the on-camera family to enjoy and explore in. The show will be shot in mid-March and will air as one episode of the Trip Flip 2013 season.

Additionally, Go RVing is sponsoring a Travel Channel national sweepstakes that will be promoted on-air and online with the grand prize being a family vacation in an RV rental.

Thor Motor Coach’s New Windsport Motorhomes

Thor Motor Coach’s Windsport Motorhomes

Thor Motor Coach reported record retail sales for units sold at the PRVCA Hershey RV Show in Hershey, PA on September 19-23, 2012.

“The customer response for our motorhomes was amazing. We had people in the Thor Motor Coach display from the time the show opened until it closed.  ”, remarked Joel Grimm, National Sales Manager for gas motorhomes at Thor Motor Coach.

The most sought after and talked about addition at the RV show was Thor Motor Coach’s new HD-MAX™ exterior packages. HD-MAX™ is a line of full color exterior décor packages that provide the look and feel of a full body paint package, but for thousands of dollars less. HD-MAX™ exteriors is available on Thor Motor Coach’s A.C.E., Hurricane, & Windsport Class A motorhomes, Four Winds and Chateau Class C motorhomes, along with the Siesta and Citation Class B Plus motorhomes.

The redesigned Hurricane and Windsport Class A motorhomes, shown to the public for the first time at Hershey, made a spectacular debut. The all new 34E rear bath and a half floorplan lead the way in sales for those respective brands.

Thor Motor Coach’s best selling A.C.E. brand of New Class A Motorhomes continued its streak of success with record sales, while the Palazzo line of compact diesel pusher motorhomes attracted buyers and the attention of the media as it continues to grow in strength and popularity.  The Tuscany and Tuscany XTE luxury diesel pushers were a hit with the best combination of content and price for a higher-line diesel motorhome.

The new 31L Four Winds and Chateau Class C Motorhomes opened up a new perspective on Class C travel, with more interior living space than most Class A motorhomes.  The new 29TB, triple slide, Siesta and Citation New Class B Plus Motorhomes had completely new interiors with upgrade features including optional leveling jacks, Firestone ride-rite air suspension, and HD-MAX™ exteriors.

“The commitment to our valued dealers and retail customers, focus on innovative customer service programs, and the development of “must have” products is generating added excitement for Thor Motor Coach products”, commented Dana Simon, Vice President of sales at Thor Motor Coach.
