    When you talked to the "permit people " in canada did any of them mention insurance ?
    I know BC has some weird rules , either you register your insurance with them well in advance or they want you to buy a temporary policy. SK may be the same. :biggrin_25526:

    Bc requires "financial responsibility"....or you can buy it for $60, in addition to the temp permit.

    If you can only pull 20,000 on spread axle, how much can you put on closed axle. I have always to take a ride up there. Looking forward to more info. Thanks

    I'm assuming it is 34k to 40k but with a permit I hauled a load into Ontario and Quebec with 54k on my tandems and over 100k gross. Don't know if that is possible in all provinces? If you have the extra hole to make a 6' canadian spread or you run a tri axle I'm sure its much higher. A canadian spread is essentially a triaxle missing the center axle.

    if you go make roads you travel on in Sk can take your weights, roads are diff. class, as winter weights will be removed March 05, 2010 # 12.01am untill around Nov. ? 2010.
    Now (friday) i will be putting on more miles as most roads will be limited!
    Make sure your route is what Sk. calls primary roads! Would PM you but ? not enough! LOL

    Montana, I was aware that SK factors in the gross weight for the temp permit. I was impress to find they bill the old fasion way - send a bill in the mail, instead of money up front. They told me $170 for a one way trip permit (72 hrs) grossing 70,000. 'Preciate the info!
