Bringing a Firearm into Canada
You may bring a hunting rifle or shotgun and up to 200 rounds of ammunition into Ontario as a visitor, but you must be 18 years of age or older to do so and the firearms must be for hunting or competitions use.
* You must be at least 18 years of age to bring firearms into Canada.
* You must either have a Canadian Possession and Acquisition License (PAL) or you have to register your firearms at the Canadian border. You are able to obtain and complete a Non-Resident Firearms Declaration form before you cross the border which will make it easier and less time consuming. The permit fee is $25.00 (CDN) per person for a temporary registration permit and the permit is valid for 60 days. Call toll-free 1-800-731-4000 to get a Firearms Declaration Form.
* Easiest way to obtain a Canadian PAL (possession and Acquisition License) prior to importing guns into Canada. If you have a PAL, you do not have to fill out registration forms and there is only a one time fee.
* You cannot import prohibited firearms. Fully automatic weapons, all hand guns and guns of less than 66 cm (26 inches) in length are prohibited by law.
* Restricted firearms such as pistols or revolvers may be temporarily imported if you have an Authorization to Transport (ATT) in advance from a Canadian Chief Firearms Officer.
* Seasonal residents may import restricted firearms, but must have a Possession and Acquisition License or a valid Firearms Acquisition Certificate in addition to an ATT.

We are looking at reese 16k with the dual jaw (?). Is this as easily popped out as it looks if I need to use the bed? Probably not. In my experience one of the pins is always tough to get in, but it can be done. They are heavy, and don't forget you will have rails in the bed.
I have the same hitch, have never had a problem with the pins, my twelve year old son takes it out with no problem.
I have a 1500HD, 61/2 ft. bed. Just picked up our new 5th wheel yesterday. It has the Reese revolution, didn't need to activate it. I can go 90 degrees, with about 4" of clearance. The trailer is a Rockwood 8281SS.
I was hoping some would check the recalls for their RVs and offer some feed back about the link to the website I provided and it completeness or accuracy… but that’s ok…
I have posted it at least once before with no feedback then either…
Nice Link, my friend has a Crossroads that is affected, he is going to get it checked.
We have a Rockwood 8313SS that we have had since new (bought in 2008) and have had only one issue - a crack that developed on the side wall. The trailer was way out of warranty (this happened only a few months ago) and Forrest River picked it up, repaired the side wall, repaired the inside wall, replaced the roof, replaced a slide out mechanism (Forrest River said it was 'sticking'), resealed all the way around the trailer, replaced the hot water element, and caulked around the refrigerator and stereo -- all done on Forrest River's dime. They picked it up, repaired MORE than what I saw was wrong, and delivered it back in just a few weeks.
Forrest River (parent company of Rockwood) did all of this with absolutely no questions, on a trailer that was outside of warranty, They have created a customer for life with me! I will look first at a Forrest River product for any future TT or 5er.
Who did you talk to? I noticed a small crack and a start of delam on ours. I probably don't have a chance, but it is worth a try.
