In our case, living in North Carolina, we realized that we were looking at a $3400 or so bill to get the trailer delivered to us. We were extremely fortunate to be at a stage in our lives where we were at the cusp of retirement. So, after much deliberation, we made the decision that we would pay ourselves the $3400 and pick it up and bring it home at the same time that we began retirement. It was the trip of a life time that we will always treasure. And the icing on the cake is that the Escape is worth that much more when the time comes to sell because it is 3,000 miles from the factory!
