I think its a good price. You can always make more money, but you can never make more time. You'll be losing at least one entire year waiting...

All - much to my wife's chagrin I spent this afternoon plotting $CDN vs $USD. Right now is the best time in forever to spend $USD in Canada.

The one in VA is the very first 5.0 we saw, it would certainly be worthwhile for you to go have a look. Re post 2 and size of bed, I always thought our mattress was longer than 76 but just went and measured it and it's only 75 but realize that I stretch my feet past the end of mattress into the stair opening. BTW we now own that bed that has Alf's feet in the pic!

With current exchange rate you might want to buy a new 5.0 TA unless you find a used 5.0 in Canada which is unlikely. And you could have a nice trip out west in 2017, also the year we hope to go further west and take in the Escape rally.

Hi: Richard in Georgia... Yep we do!!! Usually get 15.5 m.per US gal. Captmath in Va. towed his 5.0 and now his 5.0TA with a Frontier. Fantastic truck!!! Met a couple from Mass. at Crooked River St. Pk. in Georgia last spring on our way north. They tow the 5.0TA pictured with a Frontier also so I'm not alone. Alf

Although there is no way to know what the CAD/USD exchange rate will be two years from now, you do need to make some sort of prediction if you want to budget.

All - thanks for the input. If any of you are heading south on I-75 and want to boondock for a night before hitting ATL traffic let me know in advance via PM. I'm only a mile off I 75 and have a SAFE place that you can park overnight.

Now I'm confused.....We don't have our trailer yet, but if we did, we'd be coming in from the West.....��
