Forever grateful for our round table, Reace. Tammy told me back then you were sweating about it, but it turned out beautiful! As did the rest of our “outta sight”.
You two have done a wonderful job in creating wonderful trailers!
Reace and Tammy, thanks for everything!
Best wishes for both of you! Cheers!!

Well done to both of you and best wishes for the next chapter in life. Shifting gears big time for a retirement; most likely a lot of proud moments ahead camping next to an Escape!

Wishing you the best on your retirement, hope you enjoy the life change as much as we have. Your years of hard work have given us years of enjoyment. Thanks.

It's going to feel off a bit not getting my questions answered by one you.
Happy Motoring

Congratulations to both of you and wish you the best as you create the next phase of your life! As I’ve always said, instead of having “satisfied customers,” you have created “raging fans!” How many can say “we had a small problem with our trailer, but the owners/founders of the company solved our problem?” Most of us can!

As an business owner myself you have two choices when you own a company, children and or relatives take over or you sell what you sweated and built. CONGRATULATIONS on creating the top of company someone would be proud to own, you ask me KV has a tough act to follow .
We've never met and we bought our Escape used but know the reason we chose to do that was both of you and the reputation you built.

As many of the others have said, you ever down south in Georgia and want a place to park it and relax for a few days all you have to do is say the word.

Enjoy the journey.

Reace and Tammy:

A special vote of "Thanks!" from our minimally verbal special-needs daughter (who also doesn't type). Use of our E21 "Gypsy Cat" has gotten her "out-of-the-house" with style and comfort in ways previously unimagined... And "Thanks!" from her younger brother.

Now, if Mom and Dad would only add that dog under the dinette, life would be perfect!

Wishing you the absolute best with your retirement!

Tammy, Reace,

Wishing you all THE BEST in this next stage of your life! We love our Escape and are as excited about it as we were two years ago when we picked it up and gifted you this painting that Pete created for you.
Hope it always reminds you how appreciated you are by your customers!
Congrats on your retirement and hope to see you on the road.

Tammy and Reace,

Congratulations! Michelle and I wish you the best as you move on the the next phase of your life. Many of us have already made that transition and we can reassure you that itís wonderful! If you are ever on the Texas Gulf Coast you have a place to stay and a cold brew waiting for you.

good luck

Reace and Tammy,

Best of luck to you on the next stage. Someone told me that you retire "when you have enough and when you have had enough". Sounds like both of those apply to you.

I hope you got a nicely equipped 5th wheel on your way out the door and will have time to see the world a bit. If you folks ever come to the twin cities, let us know. would be happy to buy you dinner.

We will miss you but totally understand your decision.

Congratulations Tammy and Reace,
I had mentioned to Joldie that when we bought our 21 last year about the same time as we bought our new truck the difference was like night and day between dealing with both companies.
You should be very proud of what you have built, it must have been a lot of work. It's not easy to build such a successful company with so many happy customers. If you can let us know how you are doing in the future.

Reace and Tammy... we will all be forever grateful to you both! Charlie and I loved meeting you when we picked up our 2015 5.0 TA in Sept 2015. We always had our questions answered by you.
At this yearís Owners Appreciation Rally Reace helped to troubleshoot an issue we had without reservation!
You will always have friends to visit everywhere you go... as others have said! Come visit us in New Hampshire... especially for fall foliage.... or anytime weíre not traveling!
We wish you the best retirement... youíve made it possible for so many of us!!

Congratulations. We are so, so happy for the both of you. You have definitely earned your retirement and all that goes with it. Youíre going to be so happy in the next chapter of your lives. Iíll never forget when we flew to Chilliwack for our orientation. The time Reace took with us to explain everything was unbelievable as we were pop up people buying our first trailer and quite overwhelmed. Tammyís cordial welcome made us feel like family. The whole process reflected the the integrity and quality of ETI. Happy Trails to you until we meet again.

Congratulations on your decision and retirement. Our past and future travels have been or will be enhanced by your vision and design of a great travel trailer. Hopefully you come down to south Louisiana on one of your trips. We would love to share some Cajun hospitality!
