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?
As we understood it, once we signed our final build sheet, any price increases after that didn't affect us. We hurried to sign it, and only incurred a $50.00 increase on one item. Whew!

Methinks a bit of patience is required. Sure, the price increase is up, and the details for changes have yet to be revealed, but you can't even place an order anyway. I would bet that by the time orders open up again for the improved Escapes, all the changes will be known.

The way I understand it if you have a 2016 model on order the base trailer price will never go up, but the options can increase in cost till you sign the build sheet. Looking at the way ETI does business I am sure the increase was justified. I too feel sorry for the Canadian buyers since the increase surely is due to the difference in the Canadian dollar and the US dollar.

That makes sense.

While the increase is steep, it's still not a bad deal for US buyers. If I were currently in the market, it wouldn't put me off. $30,300 CAD for a 19 comes to about $21,500 USD for example - still a good deal.

Our base price was $25,500 CAD, and our final price with options was $35,005 CAD. Do the math and you'll find that even with the price increase, a new 19 with the same options would go for about $28,400 USD - about what we paid anyway in 2015.

I thought the price wasn't nailed down until it's paid in full. There's some fine print to that effect.

Your base price won't go up once you've made your deposit - unless that's changed too. Options sometimes do increase, until you've signed the build sheet. ETI has always been pretty good about that. Not sure about the fine print.

Could be the exchange rate can change until the paid in full amount is reached.

I wrote to Sarah last night to ask if this would have affected our trailer if the build sheet hadn't been signed. I'll update when I get her reply.

I'm assuming it's for 2017 trailers. But never assume!

Here's what's on our build sheet, that was just signed off on within the past few days:

Prices are subject to change without notice. Escape Trailer Industries reserves the right to change the price of an option based on market fluctuations. The customer will be notified of all changes when they come into effect. Once a Build Sheet is Confirmed, the Options Price List becomes fixed.
