Question Advice on traveling through Canada

Hi All,
Family trip this summer where we are traveling from NJ through upstate New York (couple days), crossing into Canada at Niagara Falls, staying a night in London, Ontario, and then over into Michigan. I know all the paperwork (passports, birth certificates, etc) that I need to get in and out, but looking for the best ways to make these border crossings pulling the camper. Any expertise out there? Time of day, best places to cross, etc. Thanks

Say yes sir, no sir, and leave you guns at home.

If you have any pets with you, be sure to have their vaccination records. And yes, answer only the questions they ask and don't elaborate! LOL

I went into Niagra last year (no camper). It can take over an hour to cross the bridge. (Both ways)

I have a Nexus ID pass and just drive right thru with the camper. If you take a gun you could loose the camper and I think that's good. Been going to Canada for 60years + and never locked a door!never lost anything! Wish I could say the same about the states.
