When I sent in my final payment, I sent it registered mail. The USPS, in doing its stellar job, routed it to Tokyo, Japan, and it took 3 weeks to get to Chilliwack. I would go the FedEx route.

Wow! Our Escape will be ready in early January but we sent in most of the $$ last month. When the rate got to $1.26 we just had to do it. You got nearly 1.30!!! Those extra 4 cents really add up when talking in the tens of thousands of dollars!

Good job!!

Seems the USPS is anything if not inconsistent. We mailed a check, regular first class mail, in December of 2014 and it got there in 5 days. Total cost was $1.26.

In Olds where I grew up, the postal code was T0M 1P0, more commonly refereed to as Tom, I pee often.

Greg and Teresa,

Kentuckian here, seriously considering getting in the queue any day for a 21. Like you, my husband is not retired, so that long, long trip is not an option. PLUS, we are absolute rookies! Never been camping (well, tent camping a few times - don't like tents), never pulled a dang thang in our lives.

If it turns out that we do pull the trigger soon, maybe our girls could come home on the same truck and save us both some money (maybe enough for that box! )?

Another Tennessean here; have 21' with U-dinette being hatched 6/16. I, too, am unable to make that long drive so will be having new one delivered. Go on and make that decision and get good rates now; also, we could possibly split delivery rates with Greg and Teresa making costs much more affordable. Give it some thought.
