I think this is a very good point. Do they want to expand production, and if not, will customers get discouraged if the wait gets too long. Most of us are so passionate about the ETI products that we were willing to wait.

They maybe at a critical point in their business growth to where they may need to expand, go public to raise capital, become less personal and customizable to meet the growing demand, or stay the course. I hate to think if anything ever happened to Tammy/Reace that ETI could close. Your management team and workers are your best assets and helps to build goodwill.

Harley Davidson always had a 6-9 month wait for some of their models. They still seem to be successful.

That's true, even when they were building crappy motorcycles. Brand loyalty and marketing drive sales.

As someone that tried to buy a Harley in the late 90s, I've got to say that my BMW is pretty darn nice. At the time, you had to pay for it up front and then wait 3 years. Harley builds nice bikes; but so does BMW.



I'm willing to wait 10 months for an Escape; but I'd hate to see them get to the 3yr late 90s Harley backlog level. .

Big sticky dealer sales people do not camp or know anything about the products they sell. Friends of ours bought a 27ft sticky last fall and took delivery in February, the sales man did not know the product. I asked to many questions at the RV show. Salesman got the factory man who knew a little more.
The nice thing about FG trailers is the factory workers and owners know their products.
