Cost of delivery is included in almost everything you purchase, check the invoice on your new car, it is there. Any new trailer will have shipping cost included in the price sent to a dealer. Without a dealer network this item is passed directly to you. Unless this has changed, 2-3 units on a delivery will reduce your final cost. Also do not forget these prices are in Canadian money, which is about 25% higher than US$$.

You often get what you pay for. A gal in my hometown ordered a brand new Scamp. Had it delivered by Scamp. It was towed behind a pickup! By time she saw it, the front was chipped up, tires had several thousand miles on them, inside was disheveled, etc. She refused delivery! Back to Scamp the trailer went. Scamp sent out a brand new one on a flatbed the next time. So... pay attention if you're having a trailer delivered. Don't assume.

Cpaharley, according to this, it has changed. Cost regardless of how many trailers are on the truck.

And a much bigger cost than you paid, is it not? And that is to Goshen.

We paid $1200 CDN for the 19' delivered to Goshen, IN in August, 2013.
As DONNA D. stated : "So... pay attention if you're having a trailer delivered. Don't assume. "
The table was on the floor with the hardware side down, scuffed the floor and cabinets. The Maxx fan roof vent was in the full open position. Check the trailer over if one is considering tipping the driver.

This summer right before mine was scheduled for completion and delivery the price went up. I think it was 1.50cnd per mile for about 2500 miles. I wasn't thrilled with increase but realize ETL is not the delivery company. If I had been able to go get the trailer, I would have, but that was not an option. So I just paid the extra.

Delivery is a expensive option. But for me there was no way around it.

Now you've got your rig, having fun with it I hope and had fewer miles on it and your tow. Never look back. In fact, I advocate taking the rear views off, I know the world is behind me. J.K.

It's true you get what you pay for, but in this case I'll bet Scamp hired someone to haul it on a bid basis - like in the reality TV show "Shipping Wars" - and the winning bidder used a truck instead of a flatbed trailer.

At least with Escape, you KNOW it will be shipped on a flatbed and not towed.

Yep, I only mentioned it because folks sound like they're looking into different delivery methods. Don't assume! Or, like in the Scamp case, it could turn out to be an expensive lesson (or in Jane's case... time consuming).

Shipping wars

Rbryan,
Although we all know the reality shows are heavily scripted, considering how much most of us like our Escapes, , can you imagine the inspection upon delivery if one of those clowns delivered Escapes? They would be paying Escape owners and be out of business shortly. If it was real!

I am pretty sure there were Escapes towed for delivery, not on flatbed.
