I believe ETI may not always charges for storage, depending on circumstances....

Per escape last Q&A a couple days ago longer then 30 days storage is no longer available. I guess they rented space next door but that business was sold so they no longer have that storage space. From the agreed day of pickup you have only 30 days to pickup or move your trailer elsewhere at your expense.

If you have a check with you, you can walk out with your temp. reg. and a license plate with that one stop. They know what they're doing.

(We didn't know, so we used our local DMV: 3 visits totalling about 8 hours of our time. Ugh.)
Thanks! This is helpful information about a logistical detail I had yet to give any thought to.

I'm certain we'll meander a lot more on our way home than we will on the way up. We tentatively plan to spend at least a week on shakedown and visiting friends well within a day's drive from the factory before heading back to Northern California.

Trailer: Past time to update- canceled my 5.0 ��

[QUOTE=SteveSgt;431670]Our spot in the queue made more than a 100-spot jump this month.

I wonder if thatís because so many people cancelled their orders? Now, with OPEC decreasing production, gas will be jumping to an even higher price pointÖ

Hi Steve and Jean. Iíve done a stretch of the North Country Trail in my part of the country but probably havenít put as many miles on my shoes as you have. The appeal to me with the Escape was in having a little less extravagance than the big trailers while enjoying a home away from home in some situations. There is definitely more minimalism to be found than Escape but I think itís a very comfortable balance.

Cutting in line?

We just went from "waiting in line" to apparently "cutting in line"!

We've been asked to complete configuration within a couple of weeks from now to secure an early April delivery.

Yikes! Lots of decisions to make... Fast.

Fire away with those questions! April is a good time to pickup, but December is not good for the contract review, so triple check that.

The same with us, we jumped the line, will be picking up our 5.0 around March 31 2023 about a year early! Very excited, but not so excited about the recent price increases

You may want to ask Escape about making full payment now and would that avoid any increases?

$1.25 at Dollar Tree. Dollar General is NOT a dollar-type store, as you've found out.

Good to know, but now with the price of gas, to run all over is a washÖ

Escape stopped that option when the new owners bought the company

The latest draft configuration we got from ETI seems to have pushed up our delivery another couple of weeks into mid-March.

I'm joking that this barely gives us time to pack for the trip to pick it up!

Signed off!

Decisions deliberated...
Provisional plans propagated...
Dollar dispensation dithered...
Choices considered...

Configuration committed.

And finally:

Signature submitted!
