Default No importation without inordinate hassle

This van cannot be imported to U.S. without paying fees out the other end.

It must be 25 years old to do it and have it be worthwhile.

Very cool rig. Super rare here on NA soil. This is not eligible for US entry until it is 25 years old (2024). You will have to find a Canadian buyer or enjoy it for 6 more years.

Best of luck!

Very cool. More money than a 4WD Sprinter brand new, but still very cool.

If I was sickenly wealthy, this is the type of thing I'd spend my money on.

I think I'll find a Unimog and rebuilt it with a camper on the back unless I win the lotto. I went and looked at MB 4wd sprinters this past weekend and they look nice. A bit pricey, but I think I'd rather have one of those than something as old as the VW van... unless it was fully restored. I'll go play the lotto now.

This is still a pretty amazing rig considering the poptop and double slider.
People want to denigrate it by calling it old, but the reality is people follow these vehicles from the 90s now. You’re getting old and the 90’s is 20 years ago. It’s Okay.

Yes, and there are legal ways for a US citizen to purchase this vehicle for use in the US.

I'd prefer to do so over the phone, but, as a Canadian resident (citizen?) does that truly affect you?

Absolutely no legal way to bring it into the US pre-25 years old. They are very strict about this.

You're right about the laws being very strict and specific, but you're very rigid and uncreative (and misinformed) about your assessment that it can't be brought in to the US.
