I assume that this increase is for 2017's yet to be ordered, not orders already in, right?

That's what I was assuming. Doesn't really look like they've put up the final option pricing and standard features yet as those seem to be the 2016 ones. Probably a work in progress.

The new and used market for Escapes is astounding, constantly changing. My wife and I had both really liked the 5.0 and had considered upgrading but I'm afraid this price hike and waiting list just doesn't make it possible. No biggie, were still content with our 19'. The market for Escape is just finding its equilibrium.

Your not alone . I did some figuring from the new 19 base price added about 7000. In extra's and it still comes out a little cheaper then what we paid in 2013. We still feel Escape is a great trailer at a great price .Just our thoughts . Pat and Linda

I just think it would have been better if Reace had announced the new features at the same time he announced the big price increase. It would have softened the blow. All I know right now is that the trailer I wanted will cost me significantly more today than it would have yesterday. Plus the exchange rate has been sliding the wrong way the last few days adding even more to the final cost. It's gonna be a wait and see.

Did a little math, if it's correct...
ETI raised prices roughly 22% from when I bought 2 years ago
I paid $38300 CAD or $32600 USD
Bumping up the price 22% gives me $46700 or $33180 USD
A difference of $560 USD in 2 years.

No such luck for our Canadian friends.

Or did I do something wrong.

Can't say I was shopping the exchange rate when I bought, I wanted the trailer and was willing to pay the CAD price. The discount was an unexpected bonus that paid for shipping. Don't know if I'd go $46700 in USD though.
Happy Motoring

One thing that's not clear is when does the price increase apply? Does it apply to those who have already put down a deposit for a 2016 model (that would be unfair) or just for those planning on a 2017 model? If the latter, the increase is meaningless at the moment since you can't even order one yet so why not wait to announce the price increase until the new feature set is ready to be announced?

If you paid a deposit then your price should be already determined. Price increases normally will apply to future orders, as 2017+ years.
Maybe it is still in the stars for me if standard features are changed, I'm still in line.

never in doubt, often wrong
