Send me your US$ and I will store them in my Cdn$ bank account until you need them. My rates are very competitive.

Maybe they want a build sheet completed first? I dunno. Yep, email them and get exact information from them. Tell them others have paid in full months earlier and why can't you?

Strange. Keep us posted so we don't lose sleep wondering why you can't pay now.

Once your build sheet is complete, signed and accepted by ETI you can start paying as much as you want.

That's the way we did it last May. We signed off on the build sheet and then sent a check by FDX a couple of days later. Even after that, I made several small changes and additions with no problem or extra charges. Loren

If I were you, I'd call them and get more clarification. We talked with our sales person and were told it would be fine to send more money towards our trailer now (in addition to the $2500 deposit). We also talked with Kathy Davis in Accounts Receivable who emailed us information on how to wire funds to ETI in either US or CN funds.

The problems started when we went to our bank to do the wire transfer. Ran into difficulties and finally just had them draw a check for ETI in CN funds and mailed it.

We were also told you could make payments towards your trailer by credit card in amounts up to $3000 per transaction.

I'm pretty sure that it is a maximum total of $3000 charged to a credit card for the build. It costs ETI about 3% for credit card transactions so it gets expensive for them to take more than that by credit card.

Hmmm...that makes sense. I guess I need to call and get clarification.

If I could have charge the whole thing on my my credit card, it would have earned me enough miles for a round trip plane ticket to Florida

I put my deposit on my CC, and cleared up a small balance in Chilliwack of a few hundred dollars when I picked up. The big nut was a wire transfer.
