Hi: padlin... Thanks for the pic. I believe the nose of the trailer left side of that pic is our trailer. Here's one of our trailer...hot out of the nest!!! Alf

I now realize my previous post may have sounded very negative. That wasn't my intent. I trust ETI enough that I would buy a new model TT sight unseen.

I will have 12 days to make any final changes before submitting my build sheet which is due 1/10/17.


Thomas, I don't read your post as negative. A little nervous maybe, but not more than that. You may have the first 2017 5.0 TA in Texas! If I wasn't already planning to fly up after Quartzsite to visit Chilliwack, I'd be clamoring to see yours.

Judging from the refinements on the other 2017's the 5er should be awesome! Mine is due for delivery in September; hopefully an early delivery is in my future.

I didn't read it as negative, just wanted to let you know that not seeing what you're getting till the last minute isn't all that abnormal.

Hi ReagentGrade,

Your plan to go to ETI to see a 5.0 TA yourself is a good plan. We plan to personally pick up our trailer at ETI, then travel until early September. It is possible we may be in Texas sometime in the middle, but nothing definite right now.

I'm happy to show our trailer to anyone if the schedule works out.

We received the email yesterday. We jumped at the opportunity for an earlier delivery. Our current date is Aug 28 and we'd love to have it for next summer.

Received the email yesterday. While it would be nice to have it sooner,declined moving date up. With no disrespect, but the additional wait time will allow them to train the new hires in how to build a trailer and with perhaps fewer "oops"....also will have about a year on the new design in the field to see if any changes are needed.

How do you know who will be building which trailer?
