Thanks for the pictures. It's hard not to get excited, and I am not even in the market.

Your excitement is contagious, Donna. I am getting it too, and I don't even have one on order.

Glad that you and Vicki got to get in a trip to Chilliwack. I have been to their old facility a couple times, but never to the new one....yet!

Google Maps works fine - I just put in the address from the ETI website (43851 Industrial Way, Bldg B., Chilliwack, BC, V2R 4L2) to check and the directions are flawless.

On the other hand, I just did the same thing in Mapquest, and it's correct, too. Sane with Bing...

I showed up in the morning recently on my way past Chilliwack, and they were happy to accommodate me... if I could come back at noon, while the factory was on lunch break. It is not safe or productive to have people looking around at peak activity times, and I understand and respect that.

I should tell you, these 5ers looking like they're really tall out of the wheel wells. The tires are off the ground and the trailers are all on rollers so they shove them around the factory without a tug.

Now, y'all gotta wait for Vicki....
Hi: Donna D... THANKYOU,THANKYOU, and THANKYOU!!! Alf

HI Donna, We are in our hotel waiting for tomorrow and the pick up. We did drop by and got to do a quick look over of our 21. You had taken a picture of it yesterday though the fence. We got to talk to Reese, Tammy and Kim, all very nice folk.
We are very happy with the results.

John

Oh John, that was YOUR trailer at the front of the gate? I thought an owner picked it up while Vicki and I were inside the factory. It's beautiful.. (I got to peek in the door!). Enjoy every moment of orientation, take lots of notes and plan to have a wonderful first night (and many, many others).

Pictures, you will share pictures of that first night camping won't you...
