A little reciprocity would be nice. I feel rather sad for all the Canadians who winter in Florida and are getting the shaft as a result of the exchange rate. And as I have said to many of my Canadian acquaintances, I don't want to infringe on anyone's sovereignty, because the economies of Canada and the US are closely related and a number of residents of both countries earn their livings on the other side of the border, it is my opinion that the two countries should share a common currency like the Euro Zone. That would eliminate a lot of pain for the "little" people, and eliminate the exchange rate merry-go-round. In addition, it would help people like Reace to stabilize prices as he has to cope with a fluctuating exchange rate when purchasing components from the RV manufacturers primarily in Indiana.

This is so true. Great way to see it, Pat.

I guess for some that were stretched financially, with their hopes of getting the great savings shopping Canadian, may have to readdress a purchase of this size, but if you are still buying something nonetheless, I don't get the fuss either.

ROFLMAO. Truth and humour, in one short sentence.

News up here in Canada is suggesting that this rebound may not be long term
"Loonie Rebounds Above 77 Cents, But 65-Cent Dollar May Be Ahead" was one headline. Perhaps a longer term view is a a way to look at this : )
