5.0 TA Build Sheet done. Thanks for all of the advice.

I signed off on the build sheet and I want to thank everyone for the very helpful advice and pictures whether they knew they were giving it or not.
Following is my Build List:

DELETE RANGE HOOD
Reverse sink and cooktop.
Foot flush toilet.
Toilet shut off valve
Winterizing T-Valve
DELETE BATHROOM SINK
Exterior shower (Passenger side, moved aft due to change in kitchen)
2 Additional 12v/USB Interior Outlet. (D/S Bed and D/S rear dinette
Dual 6v batteries
160W Solar Panel with Charge Controller
Surge Protector
Removable Power Cord
2 additional LED Captains Reading Lamps D/S rear corner dinette and P/S rear corner dinette
MaxxFan Upgrade 7500K 9with remote)
Additional MaxxFan (5100)
Extra Insulation and Frameless Thermal Windows
Opening Window in Bathroom (Frameless Thermal)
High Lift Axle
1 Counter extension (P/S Dinette)
Custom Fabric (Outdura Dandelion from Big Duck Canvas) This is a dark yellow (kodak yellow) in the same acrylic thread as Sunbrella

DELETE TABLE
DELETE MATTRESS

2 Filled Propane Tanks

I'm going with the standard formica and flooring, no A/C but a standard MaxxFan in that hole. (I can probably do wind tunnel testing in the trailer)
Once again I want to thank everyone on the forum for their valuable advice

Steve,

Will they attach the Anderson adapter in Chilliwack and tow it to Sumas with Anderson? Or will they attach it in Sumas when you take delivery?

I'll be in the same situation as you and was wondering how they'll handle mine.

Enjoy your new 5.0 TA Mark II

Rich

ETI installed the hitch conversion block on the trailer and insured the hitch set up was OK. The ETI truck imported the trailer to Sumas, WA.
It's still not clear to me where they installed the coupler (Chilliwack or Sumas), but you could ask Ethan.

I thought I read on another forum that ETI has an Anderson Hitch on one of their trucks used for exporting the trailers. I assumed that they would mount the adaptor at ETI, make sure everything works with my truck and then they would export it. I didn't ask though. I told them that I would be using an Anderson hitch and they just added the $50.00 charge for mounting the adaptor. I'm happy with that.
