Why do you think that? If anything, I would delay your trip until the demo model is ready, but other than that, your trip should happen. You'll be able to finish your build sheet by looking at the demo model and you can still talk to them about it. I fully expect ETI to keep producing the trailers, so your original delivery date probably won't be affected. There might be a bit of a slow down with orientations, but by the time yours is ready, that backlog will have cleared up. Plus, yours is getting delivered, so that won't affect your trailer at all, regardless of when it's finished.

The ability to trace products for safety and recall is also in the process of being required of smaller food companies in the US. My wife's family owns a small Italian grocery store, that also makes and distributes their own Italian sausage, along with some other wholesale food specialty products. They have historically always done everything on paper invoices, but soon will be required to be able to track every food product that they wholesale in case of a recall of that product. That means that they need to switch to computerized inventory control and bar code tracking. I never assumed that this was in any way targeted to harm their small business, but rather to extend protections of consumers in the case of contaminated products.

Looks like everything is now electronic and companies ALL must comply with the process for OUR health and safety. I'm thankful to be able to enter the VINs of all our vehicles and will get email notification of any recalls.


If you think of all the possible things that could trigger a 'suspension' like a solar panel flying off, a cracked frame, etc. that would be reported by police reports, insurance claims etc. ETI would get notified and IF they were slow at responding, or simply didn't have the drawings, plans, schematics or whatever documentation not properly signed off by the appropriate "professional", delay in mail or processing ... all could result in a suspension.


I'd guess that ETI was not 'surprised' by the suspension but may have been struggling to comply with requests. I see the 2017 model introductions has not gone as smooth as they would like. Possibly delays in this NHTSA process could have an impact on their process?


You are welcome to your opinions about the government. Personally I am thankful the NHTSA agency is forcing manufacturers to make fair and timely recalls and making the process transparent to ALL of us on the website.
Thankyou Klem . Pat

Sounds like a John Grisham Novel about the powerful shadow lobbying conglomerate of Scamp, Casita, snoozy ETC at work.

I understand the need to have a standardized data base but my insurance company (Progressive) just looked up the VIN on this system and found all the information they needed.
We were schedule to pick up our trailer next month, gave notice to our jobs and our short term apartment we rented while our Escape was being built so we could go full time traveling. I hope this can be resolved quickly but the NO notice by the DOT and Customs is just another example of a government that really does care for small business. Giving Escape a reasonable amount of time to transition make a lot more sense.
