New option for forthcoming 15b

I just talked to Rease about our forthcoming 15b that is due in the summer.

For a nominal charge, Rease is able to offer an extended version of the 15b. I believe that he will call it a 17b

After much soul searching and discussion, my wife and I have abandoned our dream of a 15 footer and have switched in favour of the extra space in the 17. The rest of the options will remain.

This also moved our due date up to the start of summer rather than mid-August.

I believe this is called "2 foot-itis".

cheers,
Gord

Re: New option for forthcoming 15b

Similar story here. We started with an order on a 13c so our car could handle it. We bought the four-foot addition called 17b and bought a new tow vehicle. We made the right choice, but money is going to be tight for a few more years while we pay off a car loan and the line of credit that bought us the trailer.

If the trailer is going to work for us it needs an eating table, a bed, a toilet and a cooking area. For us, switching the bed to and from the dinette is not workable.

Re: New option for forthcoming 15b

Hi: All... Guess we're the lucky ones. Went to look at a newly arrived Ontario hatchling. It was EGGZACTLY what we wanted in a 5.0!!! Good thing too, as we bought it the following year, including the tug. Now we're trying to deal with a new tug and an over flowing line of credit and only three more years to work it off!!!
That summer we took "Our Escape Hatch" to Bolerama and the first people to view it asked twice if it was for sale. Hot or what They couldn't understand the long ordering/waiting period so Tammy put them onto another used 5.0 in Oregon...SOLD. Alf

I'm sure you will be very happy you did. Especially on days you'd rather be inside.
