I got the scoop from Sarah today when I went up there to hand over payment in full for our trailer.
This is regarding the issue of me being told almost 3 weeks ago that we had to get the stove cover and others stating they're not getting it. Sarah thought it had to be included for safety reasons, but after we were up there she received new information, due to another customer's order for their trailer.
IF ETI is supplying the stove cover, they HAVE to install it for the above mentioned reason. So, if you want the stove cover, they have to put it on.
However, if you don't want it, they will not provide it, which means they do not have to install it. So, if you say you don't want the cover, no worries. You're not going to get it nor will you have to remove it later.
There isn't any credit given if you don't get the cover.
So, thanks to those that mentioned they weren't getting it and how come I was saying you had to get it. Now we know! Sarah updated our build sheet to reflect that and there wasn't an additional charge even though it had already been signed off on.
Saw a cute 17 trailer that was all completed. Actually two 17's in a row outside. One with orange graphics and I forget the other (red? - don't quote me on that). I only saw them from the outside as they were in the "do not cross this line" area.
Be wary of rotties with gas! Holy cow! Two of 'em in the office and one right next to my feet. I thought my cat was bad!
They don't know when the ordering dates will be for the 21' and 5.0TA trailers. The 17 & 19's have already been posted (June 1st).
Sarah said she didn't know what any new options or standards would be as Reace was still trying to figure them out. If anyone has ordered an option that becomes a standard and they switch to the new version, they'll look at the build sheet prices and adjust accordingly.
If you switch to the new version after the order date has been announced for your size, you won't lose your place in line. If your trailer is due before that date and you want the new version, you'll get into a new queue for that, which has already been stated. Which means other trailers will advance up the queue so some of us might be getting our trailers even earlier than expected, so we might get ours even earlier than the 3 month advancement she told me before! YAY! But, I won't do the happy dance until I get official notice from them.
They are looking at new flooring, countertop and fabric, but haven't made any decisions there. As in, it might or might not be changed. She said far more people get custom of those than folks sticking with their stock materials. Jackie at Pioneer said she hasn't seen which sample they took, but she's really curious.
Since they're still trying to decide on options/standards, I didn't ask if the electric awning would be an option or standard. I also asked if they're going to frameless windows if they would be thermal and she didn't know (or isn't supposed to say!).
Yep, we get to wait until March 24th (I think that was the date Reace stated) to find out more. And they need to get some answers from their suppliers and all that.
The plan is to have all 4 models of the new versions of the trailers, complete with any new standards, ready for viewing at the Rally.
