Price Increase

Just noticed the price of a standard 21 jumped from 27,800 to 31,800. Ouch!

Wow, our 19 base price we just picked up was $25,500 CA and it is showing $30,300 CA now.
Exchange rate is going to really affect these I guess.

Maybe I didn't look close enough but didn't notice any changes in the standard features either.

ETI has gotta pay for that new building. . Glad I got my 19' a couple years ago. They are rapidly travelling outside of my affordability range.

A wild guess is that ETI has to import the systems, that are about half their cost to build a trailer, from the U.S. and pay for it in U.S. dollars.
Got to keep that U.S. economy growing.

I was wondering when this was coming. ETI buys a large share of their inputs from the U.S. and with the strong U.S. dollar, they had to be really getting pinched. It takes a very good business manager to keep up with all of this. Loren

Not only that but the exchange rate differential has also narrowed 5%. Double whammy.
