BC has happy hour regs that US doesnt, I will go into deep hands on research this coming week
Canadian Dollar climbing. Good time to buy some IMO for when the border reopens or for Farkle shopping.
is this the new economics?
a lower dollar not increasing the demand for Canadian products?
if the US dollar went down, we would buy less things from the USA?
I'm hoping our dollar continues to creep up and stays there until 2023. By that time, US folks will be back into overseas travel and selling there 2020/21 RVs, that they realize they don't like.
That's a bit of a stretch...
High(er) gas prices might help you more there
I just want a strong Canadian dollar to be able to buy US stocks a little cheaper.
I've been thinking similar. Flood of outdoors equipment, trailers, campers, canoes, bikes, etc and get the price down on them.
It's a common discussion within the industry. Some empty RV dealer lots, with record numbers of RVs sold since last yr. Many of them sold to first time RV owners.
There will be 1000s of them for sale when those folks are able to travel without the RV.
I've purchased several RVs and motorcycles in the US.
A few of both were purchased when our dollar was 1.05-1.09
I know people that bought snowmobiles, full gear, etc., since they could not travel.
So, add them to the list when things get back to 'normal'.
I hope you are right. RV sales were roaring before Covid. My coworker ordered one before Covid and the waiting list is over two years long.
I suspect the money that our govt has been printing and flooding into the economy along with pent up spending plans will result in a lot more inflation. Then the ass will fall out of the facade when the reality that printed money is not wealth creation and at that point there will likely be some fire sale prices.
I was shopping new camper and camper truck before Covid. Just couldn't pull the trigger. Glad I didn't as I am thinking there might be a few good deals in a year or two. My old one will do just fine until then. In the mean time I watch my retirement funds jump by leaps and bounds. On the other side I just sent several large deposits to LBS for the new side car and the exchange made it hard to swallow. Ah well it's only money and we pay to play.
Yes history repeats it's self. There was the roaring twenties after the last pandemic and then the Great Depression !!!

The pandemic is one thing, but Gov't's dramatic spending has really got me concerned about what the future looks like, we're looking into uncharted territory. Probably need to stop working and ride more!
That is a big difference and appears to be a true comparison, I often see people comparing products from Canada and the States and they are a different make or model.
free trade - made in Mexico. no tariffs ......
Bought a 2021 Ford truck 5 months ago, after 6 months, it can be sold to the states..... for what I paid!! I go get another one, need the Canadian dollar down, but this is a great deal up here in canuck land at this time. several guys are doin it, I Just ordered another 21 to replace it with.
Now that is a good idea.
I'm not seeing much incentive selling for the same price after 6 months. Then having to export to the US and then haggling with a buyer. Are you factoring in the taxes as well?
Can't even cross border travel right now. Let us know how this works out for ya.
Dealer is taking my truck, I'm getting a new one. all in. they make a bit off selling it state side. and they sell me a new one ...That easy!
