Below, you’ll find some overseas shipping hacks when it comes to importing your RV or shipping your RV overseas.


Travel & Living Abroad:

Most countries will allow a traveler to import their RV for a period of up to 6 months. After the 6 months is up, an import duty will be charged. For many travelers, especially those going to Europe and taking their RV, a duty deposit is paid up front. When the RV arrives back to its destination country, the duty deposit is then refunded. If a person has lived in USA for 1 or more years, most countries will allow that person to bring their RV back duty free! The RV cannot have any liens present. Our team suggest that you connect with the countries’ Customs Department first.


RoRo Shipping Method:

RoRo ships are vessels built for shipping wheeled cargo, more specifically – shipping RVs and motorhomes. The RV is driven on to the ship almost like it was a parking garage. The name Roll-on/Roll-off comes from the fact that RVs, and Motorhomes roll-on/roll-off the ramp, which is how they are driven on and off the ship.


This shipping method has proved highly efficient and extremely cost-effective. When compared to other shipping methods. There is an additional advantage, RoRo Ships provide reliable departure and arrival dates. These RoRo Ships’ departure and arrival schedules run almost like an airline flight schedule.
