Our flooring cost $434 US (with the exchange rate that was current when we ordered). We ordered it quite some months ago and Pioneer has been holding it for ETI ever since. They knew it'd be on hold for many months and they were fine with that.
Yeah, the paying for the cost of the flooring ourselves and not getting a credit from ETI since they're not using their paid-for flooring could get rather irksome, if you really thought about it. Not to say I didn't! But Dirk said to forget about it, as he was. So, I did.
We really, really like the flooring we picked out. It's very cushy to the feet so I guess it has some extra cushion to it. Neither of us are rug people, so using runners was never an option for us. Neither of us like their stock flooring, so that wasn't an option either. THANK GOODNESS we could pick our own flooring, even if we had to pay for it, plus an extra hundred bucks (Canadian!) for that option.
So, the extra cost is worth it to us. But, I well understand why it won't be to others. And that's half the fun of these trailers, huh?
Congrats Stephen for picking out your flooring (maybe!), formica and fabric. Yay!
You can finalize your build sheet now, but still make some changes to it. Up to the date of when they start to put your trailer into production or the immediate process before it starts to get built. We turned ours in the second or so week of January (forget now) and yet we've made some changes to it without paying a change penalty fee. However, the prices of everything we want was locked in. I don't know if ETI will be changing prices on items like they were at the beginning of the year. Two things we wanted increased in price, so I wanted to get it turned in before anything else went up. I don't have any way of knowing if anything else did increase afterwards, so I don't know if my turning it in so early was brilliant or not.
