Looks like you're having fun. Personally I'm glad the status quo is being shaken up, and am pretty sure the sky will not fall.

I’d be more worried about duty on the finished trailer that has been part of NAFTA.

Yes, with unknown tariffs on yet-to-be determined items, anything could happen. I was only referring to steel, one of the first items in the current tariff "discussion" and one of the two which Glenn specifically mentioned... and one of the few for which there has been any decision.

This makes ordering a new one complicated, I remember ordering the last one on in April/2016 where you called day after day and it was busy. That was during the change over to the new style and move making everyone to wait to select a completion date. Then there was the import debacle where Escape had to change their paper work and get certified. Then there is the historical exchange rate as well as price increases and items no longer being offered. I need a drink.....

No, the 'price' is when you pay and the monies are received by ETI. If you pay in 'chunks' the price can fluctuate based on the 'exchange' rate. IF you're a US buyer.

The CBC story could have mentioned and shown pictures of RVs manufactured in Canada instead of showcasing American models with the dealer quoting a price. He must have been very happy with the publicity.

Doesn't matter if trailers are US or Canadian made. Prices go up when tariffs ( taxes ) are applied. For US buyers, they can be consoled in that the tariffs are putting pressure on the Canadian dollar ( down to 77 cents yesterday ).

In 2015, I ordered my Classic 17A when the Can$ was at about 83 cents / US$ and felt (still do) like I got a wonderful bargain. Might be a great time to order.

Hopefully, a majority of this nightmare will be over in November.

As a single malt guy, a tariff on Bourbon is no biggie, at least not to me.

Start messing with those beer and liquor boys and you might find out who is really running this country.

From Globe and Mail:


Many of the U.S. products subject to tariffs in Canada appear to be chosen based on political rather than economic impact, said Von Massow.


For example, Massow said, Canada imports just $3 million worth of yogurt from the U.S. annually – most of which is from Wisconsin, the home state of House Speaker Paul Ryan. Another product on the list is whiskey, which comes from Tennessee or Kentucky, the latter of which is the home state of Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell.
“Putting a levy on something that we import $3 million worth of is not likely to have any impact whatsoever on any Canadian consumers. It’s much more likely to have an impact on someone who might have the phone number of Paul Ryan ... An attempt to bring pressure on the White House that way.”

Tariffs on steel and aluminum going to US and coming back into Canada. Tit for tat. Better buy that aluminum Ford F150 soon ( if it's not already too late ). Better buy bourbon and mayo too. Tariffs coming on those and 200 other items.

Things such as car parts can cross the border numerous times. I can imagine where iron ore mined in Canada comes across the border to the US to be smelted, goes back to Canada to be rolled, comes back to the US to be stamped, goes back to Canada for final assembly then comes back to the US to be sold to a consumer. So who pays what taxes and tariffs when?
