      Yep. Freight should take no more than 2 hrs to clear after being submitted.

      Must have an enhanced drivers license or a passport to get into either country, even for sIghtseeing.

      3 times not cleared into Canada and once into US. Never was turned back. BP was understanding and polite enough to let you sit in "limbo zone" (in between countries) and wait until green light is given. You just have to be polite and they will be nice to you too.

      Passports we carry. Just curious if some nice spring weekend we would have any trouble crossing in a van?

      Not unless you carrying something that border guys want to confiscate.
      Don't worry, go in and explore. It's your vehicle after all. You do as you please.

      I wouldn't take this risk. We all know how to be polite but I don't mess with customs regulations ... not even a little.
      It sounds like you're getting bad communication. Remember your butt is the one is hanging on the line as well.
      I won't approach the border until it's confirmed that the goods are pre-cleared.

      Shouldn’t have any problem crossing. Just make sure that you cross with the cars and not the trucks because you will need a ACI manifest to cross into Canada on the truck side even if you are empty. If you don’t have one and are going through the truck side expect to pay a fine of about $10k for not having one. Just go through the car side and you will be just fine.
