Wow, thank you for the pictures. Watching the progressive build is very interesting. The research and comparison is especially helpful. Did you use a local bank for the currency exchange ?

We followed Tammy's instructions. Money was wired from our account to Escape's Well's Fargo US account. Tammy then waited to transfer the money at our request. Tammy gets very competitive rates, close to what banks get, but there is still a markup if the Canadian dollar is above the U.S. dollar. When they were dead even, it was still a .015 increase on the dollar. This was done in January. Right now the rate is in the U.S. favor or .98 to the Canadian dollar. This is a good time to move money if you are buying.

Newest 15 B Build Pictures

Well, Kim informed me that our 15B is going to the "QC" bay, for Quality Control inspection. Wow, they added a lot since last week! The awning is on and so is the front box. Cushions and valences aren't in yet, but those come last I think.

Pictures again located here:

Enjoy!

Looking really good. These last couple of weeks are going to seem like years before you can pick it up.
