That is another reason to send all your money in now, to catch the favorable exchange rate, it will not last forever.

Exchange rate

Agree with you on catching the exchange rate, they've already got 90% of our money, and we plan on sending the remainder as soon as we have the final locked in build sheet (this week).

You can always give them a cc for last minute changes.

Once you get your build sheet finalized, the prices are set, even if they go up otherwise. However, if you want to make any changes once you've signed off on it, they charge ya $200. (This was on someone else's build sheet that was sent to us by mistake, but I've not seen it on mine, so I don't know if that's added when you get really close to finalizing or what.)

So, I'm thinking very carefully about everything that's being added to the build sheet and if I find something later I have to decide if it's worth another 200 bucks to add it on. Probably not. Even with the exchange rate the way it is right now.

Yeah, that's why I'm busy working on ours, even though the trailer is due to be completed much later in the year than yours. I've had prices increase on two options that I had listed. I hope to get ours finalized this week before any more increases. Knock on wood!

We plan to pay it off very quickly as well.

That is absolutely correct Laura. I was emailing with Sarah at Escape today about finalizing our build sheet, and she mentioned that $200 charge. And when I got the final document for my signature, it was spelled out there. So it would take something drastic for me to change it now. And since I started this thread with my question about an external 12 volt, I should state that we did decide to add one, based upon various feedback that we got.

The $200 charge is what I ran into when I remembered the Horst tank probes I wanted but forgot on the build sheet. I did not call and ask if I'd get charged, as the build was already in progress I just gave up on the idea.

I had a 12 volt outlet installed above each set of wheels for inflation purposes.

I saw this mentioned on another thread and I'll ask hubby when he gets home how long the cord is on our 12v tire pumper-upper. Probably not that long, so I'll probably add that to my list as well.

You know folks, once we get our build sheets finalized we are NOT allowed to read any more posts about options folks are getting or questions on it or what others got in the past or ANYTHING build sheet related!

You know we're gonna see something and think "damn, that's a good idea, why didn't I know about that earlier".

Yeah, that's me to a T!

So, once that baby's turned it, I'll just read about trips everyone is taking, which I've ignored before as we didn't have one on order. Now that we do, I can start reading all those and looking at the albums posted here. And start looking at some of the travel blogs. (We'll see how long that theory lasts!)

And I appreciate this thread getting started as it got me to send more money across the border.

You can also buy 12V extension cords for cheap if you are late with your build list.
I run mine out the door or out a window to power my pump or fan.
