Greggo, Congrats on the pay off. Will be paying the rest on mine this coming week. Have finalized the build sheet, so it's time to get her done. I see you avatar says 2013 19. Did you up grade? What's your build sheet look like? I posted mine to day in the Finalizing the build sheet thread.

Yep, I read about a rally in the oil market so figured I'd better get on the ball. Each cent is $300! Bloomberg said it's headed to .59. I'll still owe a couple grand so it should work out fine.

Question. Is this a good thing for ETI with greater sales or does this squeeze their profit margin? Wondered, for every winner, I'd think somebody is on the short end of the stick. (Ok Glenn, I'll get off the macro-economic discussion).

In any event, let the mods begin. Two drawers ordered today from Charlie and quite a pile of "owner supplied" stuff is accumulating in the den.

If you are talking to this Glenn, I can assure you that I know nothing, and the only thing I can confirm, after 67 years, is that I know nothing.

I am toying with the idea of opening a Canadian bank account. Did anyone do this? If ordering a trailer is out a year or more and the current exchange rate is insanely good, the only reason I can see to NOT do this would be if we wanted to bring the dollars back into the US (then the rate would be subject to the exchange again). So, any thoughts on this?

I am thinking about opening a Canadian bank account if we are serious about ordering a trailer for delivery over a year from now. Did anyone do this? The obvious disadvantage would be if we didn't get the trailer and had to bring the dollars back with a different exchange rate (or spend the money in Canada in a different way!) But, I'm pondering this. I am a Finance person. But, I need to research a lot more. Just curious if anyone has done this.

I'll be interested to know which way you go. Terry still laughs at me because when the Canadian dollar was worth 98 cents on US I was anxious to pay for the trailer right away because I couldn't imagine the Canadian dollar would actually go any lower. Fortunately Terry held out for a slightly better exchange rate.
