Driving an Egg to Canada - duty-free?

Hi all,

I'm much closer to the US than I am to any BGE dealers in Canada, and the prices between the two nations are -- well, there's an extraordinary jump north of the border.

Normally, paying duty at the border would be enough to put me off, but I've been doing some research, and if I stayed in the U.S. for more than 48 hours, and paid duty on the excess cost of the Egg (about $300 for a Medium), I'd be eligible for a "preferred tariff" of only 7%, according to the Government of Canada Web site.

The Egg might even be duty-free, if it was manufactured in the USA or Mexico, according to this PDF.

Can anyone tell me where the Egg is manufactured, and if there's anything in its documentation that clearly states it (if it was made in the U.S. or Mexico)?

Even at the "preferred tariff" rate, we're talking under $50 in fees. Much, much less than the $200+ difference in price between Vermont and Montreal.

Is there anything I'm not considering here? This seems a little too easy...
