April 1, 2016

Hello Everyone,

I hope everyone is as excited as we are here in the office to begin accepting orders for 2017, on April 1, 2016. Every year seems to present us with a unique learning opportunity and this year although it has just begun is promising not to disappoint!

We will try to be as fair as possible for all of those people who have been patiently waiting for the 2017 Production Schedule to be released.

On March 31, 2016 at the end of business day we will post our January - March 2017 Production Schedule. (Our production schedule is filled in a sequential order which means we follow the calendar year filling each month in order. Jan., Feb., Mar., Apr., May etc.) These dates will be available on April 1, 2016 at 8am. - Not sooner. The website will be updated as necessary showing the next available completion date for each model.

If you wish to secure one of these completion dates please contact the office either by phone, email or in person. We will not be selecting Options or reviewing buildsheets at this time. We will only be securing completion dates by obtaining contact information and processing the $2,500.00cdn trailer deposit. See further details in post #20 of this thread.

All emails received prior to 8am PST will be processed at the end of the day. This may sound 'Awful' however, we want to do our best to ensure everyone is able to secure the completion date they wanted.

All phone calls will be answered as quick as possible. If necessary we will not accept voicemails on this day. - Its always nicer to talk to someone.

If you would like to place your order in person. Please contact the office and schedule an appointment. (Please note appointments times will limited). This will allow us to provide you with a guaranteed time and opportunity to view the exterior of the new 2017. - Please note unfortunately, we will not have a completed unit by that time.

I would like to state for the record. We hoping everyone will be patient and this posting is not taken in a negative manner. As I am typing I feel myself cringing hoping you don't think the worst of us.

Our goal is to have all office staff available to assist you and with eight of us available to; answer phones (we only have 4 lines), respond to emails, and manage scheduled appointments) everyone should be looked after.

A very important note to consider or discuss at this time!

Would you like an earlier date?


Once the renovations are complete and the kinks have been work through we hope to be able to increase our production. Customers with trailers on order always have priority in regards to receiving their trailer sooner.
We will make a note on your build sheet and contact you WHEN an earlier date becomes available.

We all look forward to working with you shortly.

Thank you all,

Tammy & Reace

Good post Tammy. Should settle everyone down that's waiting.
We'll be thinking about you and staff on April 1 and watching the schedule fill up.
Here's to continued success in 2017!

Since Reace nor Tammy are on this forum as often as some others, I'd suggest you also email them direct at ETI with your questions.

There are many who do not want their trailer built in the first months of the year. It is not impossible, however, that some of those will be moved into 2016.

This IS the beginning of 2016, right? Am I on the right year?? I mean that with an increase in production and for other reasons, some folks with early 2017 build dates could move into late 2016 slots, could they not?

I was referring to people calling in on April 1st and getting a build date in early 2017. Some might possibly be moved to earlier, right? They seem to have said that.

Many do not want a build date until spring or after but there seems to be that possibility of moving up with an early 2017 date, for a few anyway. They have moved some from late 2016 to earlier.
