Didn't know about earning interest in escrow--or not, as the case may be. Thanks!

Man, I wish I had put more in my US account a couple years back than I did. Spent most of it financing our Alaska trip last month.

So I guess the title of this thread should be changed from "Capturing favorable US/CAD conversion" to "US Buyers, Buy Now."

Then you still captured a "favorable" rate. Not the "best" rate perhaps, but nobody has a genie to tell them what's going to happen. I just think this rate is ridiculously good for US buyers, and they should strike while the iron is hot.

This is very true. I was just fanning the flames. My bad.

If that happens Glenn, it would mean that as a US buyer you could get a LOADED 19 for the same price as a stock Casita 17. If it stayed there I think Reace and Tammy would also be forced to consider another price increase, as US supplies get more expensive and the relative value continues to change.
