Like spokanescape said, when I was doing mine ETI gave me a "for now" build sheet with balance owing, less payment(s).

And I thought 90 cents was a great deal two years ago.

Enjoy it when you can, nothing lasts forever. They were almost equal when I bought my 19. I think the difference was only $300 or so and I thought I hit the jackpot when I Tammy sent me a check.

We did the same thing! Worked very well and really saved on the exchange rate without getting greedy! Congrats!

Yeah, any business will be more than willing to take money!

We're heading up to the factory on Monday so I can go over their display trailer with a fine tooth comb to help me finalize my build sheet. Plus, hand over a personal check that will convert to almost 1/3rd of what we owe on it.

I'd suggest putting as much as you can down as your rate of return is greater in Canada as it presently is versus the US.

If you put as much down as you can now, how will you feel when the $CDN hits 59 cents?
Your guess is as good as mine.

How low can the loonie go? A look at how to decide: Don Pittis - Business - CBC News

This pricing change is like a shark feeding frenzy, everyone wants their bite and the best piece also....Both of my Escapes were within 95% of the exchange rate, thus it did not bother me.The exchange ratio does not make the product any better it just makes the purchaser feel better about buying it.

Paid ours off today. 71 cents the dollar. Great for us but hope this doesn't put the hurt on ETI.
