Oh oh, this is probably trouble, but a good trouble. Is it ready to be picked up now? :

Looks beautiful Al! You are going to be one very happy camper. The U shaped booth will be so comfortable.

The 5.0 for sale is very tempting, but I have an order in for a 19 build to my specs and the wait is too long, but it'll be worth it. I really like the 5.0 layout. Had a 30' 5th wheel and it was a beast. The 5.0s look so elegant and maneuverable. Must be a sweet rig.

This will always be a special classic, being the last one of a kind built.

That looks so sweet. You are so lucky. Let some major memories begin that will last a lifetime.

I'm so close to buying the demo 5.0, but am custom ordering my 19. Maybe when the 5.0 TAs are mature, I'll trade up. I can always look, admire and derive pleasure from the owner's enjoyment of these 5.0s. Gotta pace myself.

MarksAlot, IADR, what are you expecting in the 5.0 TA maturing? Do you have any idea of the cost of designing, manufacturing the plug and then the moulds for a new trailer? Do you think there will be a Version 2 or 3 of plug and moulds? Unless ETI has lost it and one wouldn't think so, based on their track record. Has there been any previous revised moulds for any of the previous line of trailers? Maybe some mods internally, but no "game breakers". Are you expecting that ETI would produce a trailer that would "dog track" down the highway?

Your comments imply that those of us with trailers slated for production should have concerns about ETI's initial product.

Well... I think not!!!
