The plan

Ok, I guess I will let you all in on a little secret. I'm going to live forever. I plan to accomplish this by not dying. That means I have all of eternity to get my finances arranged and make the buy. This contemplates that ETI will never fold but I think that is a good bet too. You see, it's all in the planning.

Far too many of my friends have passed, some before retirement, I'm no longer living for tomorrow as tomorrow is here today. As the song goes Yesterday's dreams are tomorrow's sorrows. If you have the money, loan it to your bank and get interest and then borrow it back and pay interest, the net cost is minimal over 5 years

The Future will be better tomorrow - Dan Quayle


Yes, he actually said that. No political intent, but what is your future and WHEN are you planning for that to happen?

I guess the biggest mistake we made in getting the 21 is that we didn't get it sooner. I was going to wait one more year but Cathy said to get on it. And I will always remember the elderly couple that we met coming out of the Casita plant, sadly shaking their heads in that they had waited to long. Loren

Well, no right or wrong approach here either way it goes. Only way to know for sure is when you look back.
One fact that I can offer being involved in buying and selling molded glass trailers for a long time is that these don't sit around on the market for long. If you want this one you should call tomorrow and make it happen, but even that could be too late. All this talk about maybe buying it could have pushed someone off the fence that was considering it and they've sent the email and left the voice mail for ETI that they'll take it.
No big deal if you decide to wait, but most of us have purchased recently because of the kaflooey exchange rate which can go back to par in the blink of an eye. 25-30% discount for US buyers is here today, but may be gone tomorrow.
Just more stuff to chew on.

Whoever buys this 5.0 can't go wrong! The exchange rate PLUS the fact that Escape trailers keep their value, will make the purchase of this trailer a solid investment.

Everything I read is pointing to the Canadian dollar getting stronger. The exchange rate was a big factor in us upgrading our trailer.

I've got a quick question on the subject. The older I get, the more I realize the enjoy today for tomorrow may not be here.

But I am 50. My company of 25 years has a pension plan that I am grandfathered into. I cant retire till 60 without losing a LOT of pension benefits. So with the golden handcuffs on, does one wait 10 more years? or cut them off and enjoy life now at a 50% reduction in benefits for the rest of my life?? The payout curve is much steeper in the end.

I keep waiting for the company to freeze the pension for us that are still grandfathered in, thinking that is the perfect time to escape - but it hasn't happened.

Just curious of your thoughts - and I apologize if I am hijacking - sure don't mean to.
