My advice at this point is not to sign-off on that build sheet until the deadline is close - not to the hour or minute, but not months in advance, either. I'm finding it's hard enough to wait now the build sheet is in... and you never know what might change between now and then.

I'm pretty much a newbie here on Escape Forum, too - so it feels inappropriate to say "welcome." I guess I'll just leave it at

"Howdy!"

Thanks Mary. Yeah, our build sheet isn't due until December - plenty of time to make our choices ... and change them 2 or 3 times ;-)

And it looks like you're a fellow Casita owner. I've seen several of us on here. We like our Casita, but can't wait for the extra space in our Escape - and a real mattress!

Hi Ralph and Paulette--Welcome to the wonderful world of Escape! Ike and I are also previous Casita owners and loved the little darlin' But, when you get your 21', you'll be in heaven! We have a 2015 19' and are so grateful for it. Like a palace to us and well engineered. The fact ETI allows for some custom components has been a tremendous deal for its' clients and we don't take that for granted!

All the best to you and your soon-to-be new treasure. Happy Trails~
Gae

[QUOTE=Ralph & Paulette;101965]We're going to pick ours up. Save the $3000 delivery fee, plus a good opportunity to plan a long trip out west and north! The return will be our longest camping trip by far. Hopefully the first of many.

Just to point out to others and you, a delivery can be with one or two other trailers and should not cost $3000 as you can split that.

I take it you probably want to make the trip anyway, a similar one, we are doing now!

Cathy - we were told $3000 was the flat rate to Goshen Indiana. Otherwise it would be $1.50/mile IF they are able to combine delivery. We're 2250 miles from Chilliwack, so $3,375 to deliver to St. Louis.

That $3,000 flat rate is for one trailer to Goshen, if two it will be approximately $1k less and with 3 even less. Both my 19 and 21 were delivered to east coast, about 600 miles further than Goshen and I managed to split my delivery with another owner. always less if you can split the delivery with another new owner. Goshen is where Dave picks up parts on his return trip back to Chilliwack.

There have been a few door-to-door deliveries but that seems to be quite rare. Most people are with another party or two and split the cost. Some recent delivery owners might comment. Should not be what you are being told except for door-to-door.

I had a door-to-door delivery and ETI charged me $1200, it was the only trailer on the truck, and it was a 1,000 mile delivery. I was originally scheduled to share, but something fell through, but ETI delivered anyway. Keep in mind that part of the final costs also involve whether or not Dave has to spend nights in a motel on the road. I hesitated a little at first, but when I calculated my gas costs, my own overnight stays, and the fact that I would have had to do this in November, over the Siskyous, it seemed smarter to let him do it! I don't regret it at all, since he dropped it right in my driveway!

OK, I just spoke to Barb @ ETI. She says our delivery fee to Goshen IN would be $3000, whether there are other trailers are on the truck or not. Also, the $1.50/mile rate is if there is more than 1 trailer on the truck. If ours is the only one, then it is $1.75/mile. All these prices are, of course, in Canadian dollars. With the current exchange rate at $0.77US, that's $2310, $1.16/mile and $1.35/mile US, respectively.

I think Barb needs to read ETI's own web site.
