I'm not sure I understand the question. You mean just one trailer on just one truck? If so, poor guy pays the whole bill, or waits for another trailer going east.

I was told my cost for home delivery would be $1.50/mile if there was more than one trailer on the truck, and I think either $1.75 or $1.85/mile if mine was the only one. All prices in Canadian dollars.

A new Escape trailer sitting in Chilliwack with your name on it? What a great excuse for a great trip. Loren

Agreed - except my spouse and some others in this thread who are expecting aren't retired, and we live in the southern USA! Bummer!

Even though I'm not retired, we will have to bite the bullet and make that drive if delivery is going to cost that much.

We're not retired either but being self employed I can cut my own hours and Cathy works weekend nights, so we can usually get away for several weeks at a time. Last year we drove from the KC metro area to Bellingham in 2 and 1/2 days and that was pushing it. Will have more time this year. It sounds like the orientation is only several hours and it isn't that long to get hooked up in Sumas, so that shouldn't take to much time. Loren

For us it was the 5400 miles round trip that would be like a forced march. Not being retired that would have meant we had to drive at least 386 miles per day for 14 days of vacation. If you try to do it in 10 days that's a 540 miles per day. Add in fuel, hotels, food, wear & tear, and spending my vacation doing nothing but driving and not being able to enjoy much of the trip we decided on delivery. When I deducted all the cost for the trip plus spending our vacation doing nothing but driving, delivery was the way to go for us. Our vacation is worth too much to us at this point in life to have to knock of 500 miles a day. Once ours was delivered then we took a nice vacation trip and was able to enjoy the trip and new camper. If we were retired and could have spent 4-6 weeks on the trip it would have been a no brainer to go to ETI and meet everyone and see where it was built.

Besides the delivery process is fun too. Especially when someone on Fiberglass RV post they have seen a load of Escape trailers in Ontario crossing into the states and the other people you are sharing the trailer with are giving you up dates where theirs gets deliverd.

And that day it arrives to your driveway is pretty exciting too!

You do have to give Escape credit to care enough and deliver them on a trailer. If you buy a Casita and have it delivered, it is towed to your location. Loren
