Cherryames51, I can't also help but chime in and encourage you to visit ETI in Chilliwack. Cathy and I drove up there in Sept. and by seeing the trailers and options available we were able to decide what we wanted. Reace and Tammy were so helpful I just can't say enough good about them. And from Kansas it was only a 4300 mile round trip. Loren

Just be aware, as busy as ETI is, if you go visit the only time you can get out on the manufacturing floor is during their lunch break. Noon to 12:30. However, all the trailers on the lot are open for inspection and there's a TON to look at. Just remember to clean your shoes well and have clean hands. Also, if the weather is good and all the exterior doors are open you can peek into manufacturing that way. That's how I got to see Alf's trailer before he did!

In April, Vicki A. and I went up to ETI. Spent the night at the Best Western and were at ETI when they opened the next morning. Toured everything we could, asked a ton of questions, each made decisions, made the big payments and left about 1:30pm heading back to Portland. Quick trip and absolutely priceless.

I was fine without seeing a 5.0 TA, we did see a 21 and a 5.0 before ordering, made it pretty exciting when it arrived. Between the 2 we had a very good idea of what we were getting. Of course we're 3000 miles away.

Cherryames, when they moved my completion date forward a couple times they always asked if I wanted the new date.

Welcome and congrats! I love it - we have cabin fever big time and are ready to go camping! Someone stopped by and asked us if we 'get out much' in the Escape. We said every month but December and January. They were impressed.

Donna's Ten Forward is beautiful. Go hang out in it (I'm sure she's already invited you ). That will be very helpful for figuring out options.

We would also recommend a trip to Cilliwack. Besides the Best Western, Riverview B&B is wonderful. Quite a few folks have stayed there. It's just a few minutes from the factory. Riverview Chilliwack Bed and Breakfast

How exciting for you - Good Luck!

PS Are you a nurse? I collect Cherry Ames books.
