Congrats to everyone that got the trailer of their dreams!

Now the next hardest part - working on your build sheet. I actually enjoyed working on mine and researching everything possible.

After the dust settles - maybe Monday - it would be nice if the Escape office staff were to post how many orders were placed, and what the next available completion dates are.

So you can know when you can pick yours up?

Just ordered a 19 for May 12th. Had a bit of trouble with the credit card transaction not going through initially. Charge to the card ended up being $1945, so that works out to .778.

Now the looonnnngggg wait begins.

It took me awhile to get through this morning. However, I did get in a build date of March 10. Had them note I would be willing to take a 2016 build date if one came open. Just means I can retire sooner.

DH and I have been mulling over this decision for quite awhile and I've been watching this thread and others here since ETI announced the April 1st date for 2017 orders. Even up until we went to bed last night we were still sitting on the fence, but this morning we decided to go for it. I sent our order in by email and got a Jan. 23rd completion date for our new 19' Escape. Yay! I just got off the phone with someone in the ETI office who told me they got 107 orders today! Wow!

Not bad at all for a business that was started in a converted chicken barn. Good, good for Reace and Tammy and all the employees!

I am so happy for Reace and Tammy. It's always heartening to see good things happening for good people.

Love the uptake on the trailers and hope their expansion is successful.

So if I ordered a 21 on April 1 I would get a delivery date of May 16 2017. But if I waited until April 4 I would get the 21 on Feb 24 2017 almost 3 months earlier.

Appears there have been a number of cancellations from the early orders. Someone that has a later order could probably move to the earlier opening if they wanted.
