Two years cancer free for me ....which is why I retired in August. Going to see the USA/Canada like I have wanted to do for a long time. Every day is another great day in paradise!

If I was looking to make a financial investment, I'd look to the stock market, rather than a fiberglass trailer. I'd probably lose my shorts, in either case.

The trailer is an investment towards my prefered retirement. It is worth what I paid for it, to me. I hope ETI made a nice profit on it, as well. The exchange rate is irrelevant to me. I'm planning on using the heck out of the trailer and possibly competing for the filthiest, most abused Escape, ever (the folks that took theirs to the Arctic Circle will be tough competition). If it has any value when I'm done with it, my daughters can deal with it.

Just like my dad used to say "Any day above ground is a bonus". He also used to say "If you're not in bed by 10:00 you should go home".

I hope you post pictures of your endeavors in this regard. That one of the dirty Escape is one of my favorite pictures.

Let the competition begin, though I do have 6 years on you. We rarely take footwear off to go inside, lots of towing on gravel roads with no real rock protection, the frame could sure use some touch up, it has only been polished a couple times in 6 years, no bottle cover any more, and so on, BUT we do keep it in top operating condition, and use it hard while enjoying our endeavours with it. We only hope to be able to get A LOT more time in with it into the future. For us, our trailer is just an implement to assist us in a greater goal, getting out there.

The trailer is an investment in beautiful trips and memories. And for anyone who has had a health scare, it is even more so. They say as we age these become the golden years although my 98 year old aunt says they are the rust years. I'm not going to get upset about the pluses and minuses of the exchange rate but hope enjoy the rewards of our working years. Even today my motto is work some and play some. Loren

You guys must subscribe to the Hunter S. Thompson philosophy on life.

Maybe you should modify Thompson's quote a bit to fit your Escape philosophy? Possibly something like
Quote:
My Escape's destiny is not to be sold off with it's fiberglass shell in a shiny and well preserved condition, but rather it is to be dragged into the purchasers yard all mud spattered with a twisted frame, inoperable appliances and totally worn out, and with me shouting ‘Holy shit…that was fun!
