I left my money in Chilliwack :-)

Monday afternoon I left for Chilliwack with the intention of simply looking. You know, see how they’re built, kick the tires and ask a few questions. I’d been vacillating between the 15B and 17B; it’s just the 2 of us, my dog and me, and I wanted to get a feeling for size.

Today Chrystal took me on the factory tour, I was quite impressed with both the process and quality. There was the chance to get a feel of the inside of both the 15B and 17B; the 15B could fit my “needs” but, son-of-a-gun, the extra 2 feet of the 17B plus the front dinette sure would be nice. The drawback of the 17B? The earliest completion date for the 17B would be October 14th while the 15B would be completed June 9th. I’m now leaning towards the 15B simply to be on the "camping" road next year. “I want it now”.

When Chrystal and I got back to the office I pulled out my CC ready to make a deposit and asked for lead times. Son-of-a-gun, (again), for the 17B I could be squeezed into a January date that had just opened. SOLD!

Now to finalize the build sheet.

Congrats for being 'Johnny on the Spot', Pat. Lots of fun times ahead, with the planning, and then the camping.

And the Canadian dollar has hit a five-year-low. Good timing.

Just the title of your post made me smile. Congratulations! But, good grief--you only have two months to make decisions. Youza.

Actually, Karen, the build sheet needs to be completed by the 11/14, two weeks beyond the normal lead time they want. Luckily I'd already put a lot of thought into what I would want.
