Thank you for the information on the schedule, was not aware that's how Escape does there production. I was planning on making a trip up there to order, but may reserve one of the production dates with a deposit. Also, about 99% sure I am going with the 19. I had my eye on the 5.0 or the new 5.1, but have concluded that the 19 may be the best option for us. I love the 5.0 design, but don't like the fact that you basically give up the bed of your truck for the hitch, and the 19 has pretty much everything the 5.0 has, and you can get the storage box with the 19. The full size queen is another important (must have) item for us. I need extra room when I sleep-

All of your suggestions are great!!

Thank you!

Jim, are you buying a trailer, or just playing in the exchange market?

The rate may become even more favourable. And, yes, that is the Canadian spelling...

Perhaps I should wait for the dollar to become stronger...-

I don't have to trade in currency. I invested in an Escape 19!

Congratulations!
I agree about the exchange rate. We ordered in October for a June delivery. By the time we picked up, the exchange rate had flipped from about $2000 in our favor to almost that much the other way.

Now in addition to options, there's the exchange rate to think about. Not because of planning, but because of luck, we paid for the deposit on a good day -- Canadian dollar was worth .96, but that could evidently change in a second.

If you look historically here USD/CAD closing rate summary - Bank of Canada
one can see the variations over past 12 months, it seems no more than 1-5% in either direction.

All the more reason too, Jim, for we Canadians to buy an Escape rather than a Scamp, Parkliner, Casita, or Lil Snoozy since the exchange rate will make those makes cost more for us, and anyway the Escape is a better FG all around right?
