I intend to place an order for a Stowa Flieger Ikarus and have spent much time configuring various features. Now that I'm ready to pull the trigger, I see that the Stowa website info on Shipment and Delivery states that "custom fees and duties are issued directly by FedEx". I understand that VAT is not collected on shipments to the US. and would appreciate responses from those who have previously placed orders with Stowa describing approximate costs for custom fees and duties. Also, when does FedEx collect the cost of custom fees and duties? Thanks for any and all comments that clarify these questions.
