The sequence number in the VIN (last 3 digits) indicates how many have been built, and Tammy provided more information:

Donna, I should say its on the 8.5"x11" Xmas note that introduces the calendar (and the season wishes). It's not on the calendar it self.

No selfies of the crew with #1000, although that would have been awesome!

Or speak English either. Had to laugh when I took my American nephew into a Turkish town and he said "they don't speak American here!" First time I ever heard that term. So much for "children of a common mother"

Yes, a 1/5th bottle is 750 milliliters or 1/5 of a gallon.

I am fairly well versed in both imperial, and metric, and would just love to go all metric, but alas, with our economy so tied to the much larger US market, we must give in to using both.

It has surprised me at least two or three times in recent years when clerks in liquor stores referred to the sizes of their goods as "half-pints," and "fifths." It would seem that they, of all people, would realize that these sizes were done away with many years ago.

Jim,
It's because the mental exercise is good for the brain.

Example: Escape trailer specs., where appliances are in cu.ft. and British thermal units, and tires have both inches and millimeters.

We also leave the units off. E.G. "I'll have a doubledouble with my animal fries."

Merging the trailer naming topic and the metric topic (it is a Canadian-made trailer, after all), how about "Kilo'scape"? Or would that be a thousand trailers lined up nose-to-end instead of the thousandth one?
