We have ways to find you.....it says right on the contract that personal cheques must be received 60 days prior to trailer completion, otherwise credit card, wire transfer, cashiers cheques for the remaining balance.

Reace told me that people have been paying them earlier due to the great advantage with the dollar for Americans, which is the vast majority of their business due to population. And the dollar advantage has become even much better since we were up there. That may be a big part of why they cannot keep up with orders.

Thanks for all the comments and discussion. I would love to pick up on my completion date of Feb 7 but I teach at a college, so that's out. I'd love to pick it up later in Feb when we have Reading Week, but a trip alone in Feb over the Coq and Rogers Pass pulling a new $36000 trailer makes me a little twitchy... (if the storage insurance is outrageously expensive, I may just bite the bullet!).

Regarding payment, I'm thinking of sending a cheque for $25 000 (Gulp!!) now to at least indicate that I'm not going to be backing out.

The dollar value is so good that you will do well to go ahead and pay most of it. Then you are essentially protected against any sudden big drop for who knows what reason. And if it continues to become even better, you can get the benefit of that with the rest of the payments.

Another possible option for some is to go see the trailer, perhaps even before it is quite finished, and maybe pay the rest or most then and get it later when the weather improves.

Unfortunately, there isn't much difference between the Alberta dollar and the B.C. Dollar, so that doesn't help me much!

However, it might be a decent idea to head out there in Feb just for a visit... Hmmmm..

Jim speaks the truth here. No need to have everyone speculate on insurance coverage. Or you could read your policy and see if your trailer is covered while away from home.

Just to update this thread - Tammy called me last week with a question about my build sheet, so I took the opportunity to ask about the storage insurance. As long as the new owner doesn't register the trailer, it's still considered to be owned by ETI and is covered under their insurance. Once you register it in your name, you own it and then need storage insurance until you pick it up from ETI. So, I just won't go in and register it until just before I go pick it up. Even makes sense, if you think about it..

I live in Juneau, Alaska with the Yukon and BC in between the lower states. When my trailer was nearing completion, I approached my insurance company ( its like the song - 16 tons .... my insurance company thinks its the company store ) and asked about insurance. I wanted to store my trailer in Whitehorse, Yukon ( a reachable distance from Juneau either driving or flying ) or somewhere in southern BC. My insurance agent told me that there isn't a US insurance company anywhere that will cover your trailer in storage in Canada. US owned and licensed. Traveling through ? No problem .... but storage was a different deal. FYI
