Ahh.... Jim I was hoping that, for a change, something had gone down in price. Does ETI know they have a typo? I thought those of us who chose 15's were getting some special compensation.

Some of the price increase could be due to the change in the value of the U.S. vs Canadian dollar. It would be interesting to know what percentage of the Escape is made with American products.

All the appliances, I'm thinking. Axle, electrics, solar ... batteries are InterState...

Dometic (refrig) is not US... maybe Canadian? Suburban (furnace) US. Axles.. if they're Dexter... US. So many parts are international.

Toyota is built in Texas and a lot of Fords in Europe...

Do you think with one of the trailer drop off points is at goshen indiana, that reace has a components shipped to him for the back hall? There are so many trailer factories in that area.

Deliveries are handled by a third party, Let It Ride Carriers, they are tractor trailer combination with a flat bed designed to haul trailers. This mostly consists of three or more trailer balls on a cable system. I believe they haul utility trailers back to BC, but I am sure they would take any trailer load. Being an open trailer general cargo is probably not in the mix.

Not here - the Dometic international site doesn't even have a link for Canada. We are served from the U.S. operation (Canadian provinces are found in the "state" listing in DometicUSA's dealer locator) so my guess is that Dometic refrigerators in Escapes are made in Europe and sold to ETI from the U.S. distributor... with U.S. pricing. There are so few RVs made in Canada that this would be an irrelevant OEM market for Dometic.

Good examples (and there are many more - Toyota builds vehicles in about six states, and both GM and Ford have had active European divisions for decades). Regardless of the manufacturing location, a product must be competitive in the market where it is selling. For the OEM RV market in North America, I'm sure that the market pricing is in U.S. dollars.

Okay. If I set my 17B up with the solar option, two 6v batteries, and the 1500w inverter, what typical appliances can I run and what can't I run? Is there anything I would need a generator for, other than if I had A/C? I plan to spend virtually all my time dry camping.
