That is the way I did it, just remember to add extra US postage.

Correct. We mailed it to ETI on March 4th. It was received by ETI on March 19th - (very slow, maybe delayed by my having it sent by registered mail?). It was finally deducted from our checking account today and ETI was able to tell me the exact exchange amount.

Right - registered and certified add steps to the delivery process, so they can only take the same time or longer. If you want faster - which also includes some degree of tracking - some sort of "priority" service is called for.

why not wire?

I was at my bank today and inquired about wiring the funds to ETI's US account.. Cost was $25. Seems like the most easy and sure?

This seems like the right thread. I qualify for RV financing via my credit union, but I had assumed that they wouldn't finance an out of country purchase. Is this possible? I don't want anyone's personal financial info, just ... has anyone financed from the US? If so, I need to move up my time table!

I financed through Essex (easy to locate by googling rv and boat financing) and they were easy to work with. They also had no problem working with Tammy at Escape. Their rates were lower than State Farm (yes, they finance cars and rv's) or my bank. Also, since an escape with bathroom is considered self contained, you can deduct interest from taxes as a second home. (Disclaimer, be sure to consult your tax advisor)
