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.
Which, just to keep things in perspective, is about what I paid for my 17B (with just about every option they offered at the time) in April, 2011. At that time the Canadian $ was worth $.01 more than the US $.

I didn't hear anybody complaining as the Canadian dollar tanked and ETI got squeezed by U.S. component supply.

Just called Escape Trailers and confirmed our 19 ft. trailer on order for September of 2016 will remain at the previous base price when ordered and deposit confirmed. The base price increase applies to new orders (2017) only.

Squeezed? That's the way the capitalism ball bounces in the global economy. Money follows value.

With our stocks all cratering, and bonds returning next to nothing, who knew that our only rising investment would be our Escape 21? And the thing is even fun to own!

Yup the cost of producing the trailers has jump greatly due to the poor performance of the Canadian Dollar.

I actually do not understand those to the south grumbling about the increase in price as due to the current state of the Canadian Dollar a party with US dollars is still going to be paying less for a new trailer than they would have a year ago.
