  • Our Biggest Travel Challenge Yet - Canadian Border Crossing in an RV
    Having conquered every kind of break down an RV could throw at us, it was time for a new challenge- what happens when you’re denied entry at the Canadian border crossing in an RV?
    In our previous trip, we visited over 25 countries in a year. RVing into Canada in July 2018 would be our first (and only) time we’ve been denied.
    While this set our travel plans back two weeks, I was able to pull paperwork to prove that I fit the criteria to be allowed entry into Canada.
    Please understand that we are real people and won't be sharing more detailed information than this but do encourage anyone crossing the Canadian border in an RV to be more prepared than we were!

    To answer some burning questions:
    1.) We DID have our passports. You can see them in the video!
    2.) I (TIM) am not an international jewel thief.
    3.) Border guards had some incorrect records on me (Tim). I basically had to clear my good name by gathering a few documents.
    4.) After pulling some records to set the story straight- I was able to enter CA right away.
    I think this covers everything!

      +pieter zeeuwen That's correct you musn't be leaving or loaning anything in Canada or planning any employment. One Alaska bound trip I heard about the owner said he was going to lend his trailer to his brother in Calgary for 2 weeks so was charged GST on the trailer value for importing. Strictly speaking the Canadian Border agents are only required to ask 3 questions from a repertoire. When in salary negotiations they work to that rule. I was a Union steward with PIPSC so know this. A little factoid: CBSA only has 13900 employees. Compare that to CBP having 64500 but there also is DHS and USBP adding many more salaries.

      +Greg H Glacier NP closes the Going-to-the-Sun Road in September. We drove it one year in the 1980s on the way south to Oregon. On our way back in September we had to come up the Columbia Valley then go north in Idaho. Both are beautiful drives.

    So to be perfectly clear, the real reason you didn't get into Canada is because you didn't have your passports? You state this at 6:21 within the video.

      "Not sure why you'd think we'd try to enter Canada without a passport."
      Lol, the reason I thought you tried to enter Canada without passports is because you said "we don't have our passports". Context clues. Strange that the court case from your college days had never been an issue all the other times you had come to Canada for visits, employment, etc.

    • TIM and FIN
      TIM and FIN  25 days ago

      So to be perfectly clear, we did have our passports. We didn't have them up front in the RV but had to grab them from the back. Not sure why you'd think we'd try to enter Canada without a passport. We've traveled back and forth to Canada several times in the past few years.
      You can clearly see them being handed over in the video. We didn't get in because their computer system had some wrong information on the outcome of a court case from way back in college. We got into Canada just over two weeks later. If I had been guilty of anything, I would have never got into Canada. But then again, I wasn't. So once I proved my overwhelming innocence with a crap load of paperwork I had to gather- we got in-using our passports.
      You can tell we got into Canada because of all the videos that come after this. You can also tell we know that we need passports based on the fact we've visited 30+ countries. Context clues.

    • TIM and FIN

      They didn’t even ask at the border but you need to have your vaccination records from the vet. Again, we were never asked but we did have the docs ready to go.

    The US, Mexican and Canadian political elites are making it as difficult as possible to cross the North American border. This is to force us to accept a NAU "North American Union" Geo-political reality, the supposed reason is that a unified North American Union would dissolve the borders! This is just Hog Wash and more of the forcing on all of us "You and Me" a One World Government! Now, with that statement I have just made the Homeland Security Watch list and will be banned for eternity from border crossings, international flights, jobs requiring security clearances "Defense, Telecomm, Walmart....etc" and all other creator given human rights! But, this is the price you pay for fighting for freedom and liberty for all!

    I would think borders are more secure now than they have been in the last 5 years. I don't know why this was such a hardship. If you have to be somewhere at a certain time, don't cut your timeline so short. Why put yourself in that situation. And always have a backup plan B and a plan C. That is just responsible.

    Canadian boarder crossing sucks on any given day, the most unpleasant people you will ever meet. Understanding they are not there to be friends, considering they are the first impression you get of Canadians. They are arseholes.

    Screw Canada they are some serious Ass Holes. I was turn back also a few years ago because a fellow truck driver gave me some bar codes that had been use before. Well I didn't know that but they pulled my truck in for inspection and literally took everything off the trailer and inside the truck just because of the bar code. Didn't matter I had shipping papers and proper ID. And they were rude jerks. I don't like them and would never try to go back.

Canada takes in hundreds of thousands of ILLEGAL immigrants & refugees && puts them up in hotels in Toronto etc.( including food, medical &EVERYTHING ALL-INCLUSVE!!) All you have to do is Not enter at a legal border crossing & POUF! you're IN! Just wear designer clothes, bring luxury suitcases & our RCMP will even carry your luggage. Sorry guys..next time check the terrorists hand guidebook....

    Originally from Texas, I have traveled and lived in Singapore, Europe, and Mexico City so passports and duty forms are nothing new to me. I flew to Canada on business about 3 years ago. I arrived at the airport, I have to get a wheelchair because of back problems, & there was a CP waiting at the end of the tunnel motioning me over to him. The gal pushing the wheelchair with me in it follows right along, get in an elevator and I am taken into a large room lined with jail cells and 3 CP at desks. Two other chairs held two young men who looked to be students. The three of us look at each other and I asked the one nearest me "what are you in for?" I thought it was funny. Mind you I had been up since 4 am, with one cup of coffee and a bottle of water, I was getting a tad cranky. The three of us sit passports in hand for 30 minutes when I finally stood up and said: "can we please move whatever this is along, I need food." One of the young men looked at me all freaked out and told me not to talk to them until called to the desk. A couple of minutes later the fella at desk #1 called me over and asked why I was trying to enter Canada, I told him and he stamped my passport which went to desk #2. My butt had barely hit the seat when desk 2 called me over to state my business, I told him the same thing as I did desk 1. Stamp, hand passport to desk 3 and I just went over to desk #3, he looked a bit perplexed that I did not go take my seat. He asked the same as desk 1 & 2, I gave the same response. Passport stamped and this guy welcomed me to Canada. Leaving Canada was almost the same hassle. It is what it is and if you don't play the game you don't get in. Canada, I was in Calgary but rented a car and headed N for a day, is beautiful and once my 17 ft camper is road ready I will eventually get back up there. I have been strip searched, bit by a drug dog, pulled in to small rooms with my small child and questioned in a language I did not understand. When you are traveling you have to be flexible and have a plan B & C.

    Ya, well, your skin is the wrong color for starters! Thousands of Muslims just take a cab to our border, hop out, hand their luugage to the police, and they take them to a new processing center, built soley for the intake of illegals! Millions it cost us, and these people are invading us in huge numbers! They've been putting them in hotels for the last couple years! They absolutely destroy the rooms, and the rest of the hotel. There have been reports of these "people", butchering goats in the bathrooms if you can imagine! Look online sometime to see what a mess they are making! I don't care what anyone says, many of them just don't belong in the west, never going to assimilate, they don't want to, and it's just a huge nightmare, that will be huge debt for taxpayers to pay for generations! Sorry you had to go through that! Soon, the real Canadians won't be found in the cities they migrate to, for a long list of reasons. Sad part is, most of them aren't from a war torn area like they want us to believe, they're simply coming because our PM invited them, without asking Canadians, and promised them FREE EVERYTHING!! Glad that idiot is gone soon!

    a person (Amy Gruber) below commented, "what a challenging ordeal". Having your house burn to the ground is a 'challenging ordeal', back packing and being robbed at knife point in a foreign country and having all your papers and possessions stolen is a 'challenging ordeal", narrowly escaping a shark attack while surfing is a 'challenging ordeal' Getting refused entry at the Canadian/ U.S.A. border and temporarily having no cell service is NOT a challenging ordeal! A little real life perspective when labeling inconvenient circumstances please! The same person would probably label, a hang nail, or getting the wrong order at a fast food place a 'disaster'. The sad thing is people really think this way. Overly dramatic, and the slightest inconvenience throws them into a tailspin. I think a person needs to have something genuinely difficult and challenging to happen in their lives in order to have some measure to go by. Otherwise the slightest problem is a calamity of ridiculous proportion.

    We went into Glacier about three years ago. It was horrible. bumper to taillight, and when we finally got to the rest area it was absolute hell getting parking and into the restrooms. My mother was in a wheelchair and we did have a parking thing for handicap but not nearly enough spots, and certainly not near the bathrooms. The views were ok, but having to watch all the traffic was not nearly as enjoyable. Just had to say, hope you had a better trip. Oh my, what a horrible experience. So sorry.

    In 2009 my husband and I were held at the Washington/Canada border. We were stationed in Washington and wanted to see Canada before we moved. The border guard asked what we were going to do in Canada. My husband said we just came to eat..... at McDonald’s or somewhere. They held us for hours while they did a background check on us and searched our car. We had our passports, drivers license, military ids and neither of us have ever been in trouble. They did eventually let us into Canada, but wow it was an experience

    I cross into Canada and back every year, 6 mo. stay. I am always polite and answer the officer with sir or mam. Along with my passport, I include a short itinerary with my home address, phone #, today's date of entry, where I am going, with address and phone#, with the date I will be leaving. The officer always says thank you, I wish everyone would do this. Quickly we go through the standard questions, I look at them with eye contact and Thank them for their service. Yes, I have had to go in and do some paper work. Not every time, but I always remain respectful. Coming back I skip the Itinerary , hand them the Passport answer the questions, sometimes, yes ,I'm asked to go inside. One other thing I do is to roll down the side windows so they can see in my car. On the US border they always say "Welcome home". Remember, in this life you always get what you pay for.

They stopped us, verified all our paperwork, confirmed our IDs, passports, Nexus Cards, (yes well prepared) searched our car. We dont smoke, drink, have never had even a parking ticket, So after they wasted 2hrs of our time, we were welcomed back into the US with no further ado. When they said they were gonna search the car, I said, help yourself.. but please make it by tomorrow cause we have to be back at work on Monday.. lolol Questions are easy- What's was the purpose of your trip? Pleasure or Business are the only 2 options.. How long were you there? =time since you entered, Do you have any firearms? NO. Do you have any alcohol or drugs? NO, May I search your car? Absolutely.. Anything else you'd like to say to me? Yes, you think you'll be done by tomorrow, cause I have work on Monday.. These guys are not your friends, answer questions in short yes or no fashion, do not volunteer any information or elaborate on anything, only speak when asked. be courteous and respectful. I've generally found that the canadian officials are very professional and courteous, the American officials...well let's just say that they leave alittle to be desired.. lmfao

    So its easier to cross the mexican border illegally than cross the canadian border. You should have asked for asylum.

    It sounds like they were turned down because 1)they didn’t have proper documentation to prove they wouldn’t be working in Canada, 2)they are in an rv which means they could easily immigrate without proper records of their plans, 3)when you are rving, you make your plans of where you’re going and when they don’t work it is extremely stressful trying to find other plans. They also said they called before to try and get information. He said in no way is it Canada’s fault. It doesn’t sound like they are being rude about any of it or trying to blame Canada. Just chill. You guys are doing great!

    50 bucks for a Nexus card guarantees entry better than a passport. Know before you go.

    Being denied entry is so humiliating. I got turned back at the USA border for no reason. There's got to be a reason you say. No. They gave no reason. His exact words were "You have nothing to do in the United States of America". I protested to every USA dept I could think of. The answer was simple. If they want to deny you entry for any reason at all, they can, and they will. I have been down South since with no more incidents. I have some theories. I have no tattoos, piercings etc. and I do have close cropped hair. However I was wearing a leather jacket and blue jeans. Ah ha! A drug dealer ! I don't smoke or drink and have never taken drugs in my life. Being polite to them did not help one bit either. They went back to my car again, and searched it top to bottom. I think I was denied entry because they could not find anything in the "drug dealers" car. Must be frustrating and embarrassing after searching a car two time for nothing. Don't like it? Suck it up, is their attitude. I drove all the way back home very depressed. They do it because they can.

    Don't know if you would have been able to fly from Calgary Canada into another country (USA ) without a Passport anyway. I live 4 hrs from USA Border....I can't cross without my Passport. Since 911......things are different now. I think there is alot more going on here that is not said......sounds like Criminal Record or something.

    You left the border and said there was no where else to go. Yellow Stone park is so similar to Glacier, why not just go there?

    Rules and regulations are put in place for a reason. I have had the same experience when traveling to the USA. You must have your paperwork in order. You must be able to answer your questions. That is the nature of the beast.

    A lot of jealous people American bashing here....ironic since RU-clip is an American company and they probably typed their American hate on an Apple Computer or Windows Computer, both American companies. Not to mention typing their American hate while drinking Starbucks, wearing Levi Jeans and eating McDonald's. Yep, everyone hates America, that's why millions a year try to get in illegally.

    You shouldn't be complaining. You're doing what you want where others are slaving away and no time/money for travel! Count your blessings!

    The judgement in these comments is insane, too many keyboard warriors waiting for any excuse to attack. Totally get the upset, not an ITS SO UNFAIR kinda thing, but when you've planned your whole trip to be in Canada by that point, totally understandable there'd be some emotion after a stressful encounter with border security. It's like "millennials" aren't allowed emotions any more without being called a snowflake. Why you'd comment (or keep watching) if you don't have anything good to say is beyond me. Doesn't seem like you guys take the negative comments to heart, at least. Thanks so much for not just showing all the amazing parts of the trip, it's a shame this happened but I'm glad to know I'm not the only one with some crappy travel stories!

    The real issue here is crossing the border into Alberta, they are real nasty there......am Canadian and will NEVER travel thru there again. These guys should have crossed into Vancouver - quite different scenario there.
    Hubby and I a middle aged couple with no criminal records made the mistake of travelling from BC thru Lethbridge AB (onto Manitoba) in our VW, which we now understand to cops means you are drug people. They stopped us at the gas station just over border giving 2 different versions of reports that we were supposedly driving recklessly. There were several plain clothes officers waiting to nab us at the station, hand cuffed hubby and put him in the back of the cruiser (without reading him his rights), took him down to the local station and locked him up while they did checks, found nothing in the vehicle, no criminal record, and after several hours let us go with a reckless driving ticket. Went to restaurant for a coffee in shock over the whole thing, and asked them what the ??? was going on in their town. They told us yes there is a huge crack down on drug trafficking coming from BC and the over the U.S. border there. No apologies, nothing. I wrote the Premier mailing them their ticket and telling them what to do with it, and never coming back to their province. THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE TRUE STORY OF WHAT WAS DONE TO INNOCENT PEOPLE FOR BEING IN THE WRONG PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME IN A 'SUPPOSEDLY' DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY.
    Have crossed over U.S. borders many many times never with any problems and always treated great and lots of road trips in the U.S. with nothing but pleasant experiences. Always found U.S. Border staff much nicer than Canadian side.
