Exactly. Price increases for products made in Canada with U.S. supplies and components are inevitable when the relative value of the currencies change this way.

I doubt it is allowable under trade agreements, but it is also pointless: C$35,000 is still C$35,000 for Escape, regardless of whether the buyer used US$27,3000 or 3.3 million Yen to get it. If C$35,000 is not enough (due to cost increases), then everyone will be charged a higher price.

That's true. I hate the sales tax in Texas, but then I remember there's no Income Tax here. At my current salary I'd pay a 9.9% marginal rate in income tax if I lived in Oregon. OUCH! Way more than a couple grand in sales tax - and that's every year. I guess there are tradeoffs for everything.

We have dear friends from Vermont, Ian and Jenny, who were the first ones to introduce us to the wonderful world of Escape trailers. Several members of our southeastern group of campers (Egg, Scamp, Casita) were drawn by the lure of the Escapes and we started calling it the Vermont Virus. The virus spread to 4 or 5 households and we are the latest to be happily afflicted!
I absolutely love northern New England during autumn, I spend most of it in the woods during that time.

They did raise the prices for 2015 models, I believe for just Glen's reasons.

Yeah, I would take no income tax over no sales tax, but most states have both so I consider myself fortunate. Used to live in Cali, so anything is a blessing now...

Yup. Since ours would be completed in January it was 2k more. But, I think Glenn's comment has more to do with ETI having a lowered margin due to the recent plummet in exchange rate, rather than the annual price adjustments.

I believe the exchange rate was the reason given, not just a yearly increase.

Oh, he'd be happy to share, I'm sure, as would all of us in CA. It's the ____ in Sac. ..... I'll stop now!
