RE: 2022 F350 on order

Once the VIN number is issued, you can get a pretty good idea of which week the truck will be built by looking at the Ford scheduling plan issued by "Ice-Capades" on the Blue Oval forum site. The week the VIN is issued will allow you to get info on the approx. build week. Your dealer should be able to tell you too. Waiting for the VIN to be issued is the toughest part after the order has been submitted. lol With the electronic parts shortages these days, build dates are moving or just a long way out. To give you a rough idea of timing, I ordered my 2021 on Oct 20. The VIN number was issued several days later since the dealer had an open allocation. (If they don't, it can take weeks for the VIN to be issued.) Build date was December 15th and it was at the dealer just before Christmas. Ford is switching over to the 2022 build now and parts are a bear to get so things may be pushed out a little more.

RE: Ford 7.3L & 10 speed...

We bought the F350 version last December and have been very pleased so far. Only got 2K miles on it so I cant really comment on Mileage yet. The trans shifting is a little different than the old truck, but no complaints, especially after the trans has some use / "learns". The engine has plenty of torque so we're definitely not worried about pulling the RV, even in the mountains. The better half likes it more than our old 2006 F350 with the V10. It is easier to get into, the seats are little more comfortable and the ride is better even with the tires inflated to recommended pressure. I would strongly recommend the 7.3L / 10 speed combo.

RE: Newbie boondockers left a mess in Eastern Sierra

Some don't know and others will never care. The best thing to do is lead by example.

RE: Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper, Alberta

We have been there multiple times thru the years. For us, the best time to go is late May / early June or in September. Fewer people and more animals running about. Give yourself at least a week between Banff and Jasper. Enjoy!

RE: Jayco?

WE have a Jayco Eagle HT 28.5 on order. While we were thinking about the dual pane windows, once we found out that they weren't sealed, it really was not the $$ in our opinion. Talking to others, it sounds like the dual pane does more to prevent some moisture on the interior of window on cold days. As for the additional trailer, as long as it is small / light, I dont think you will have a problem.

RE: Ford 7.3 Gas motor

I have a new truck the 7.3L and am waiting for a new 5th wheel. I had a 2006 F350 with the V-10 and 4:40 gears. I can already tell that this truck has more zip and will handle towing better. I'm already getting "better" local and highway unloaded mileage with a brand new drivetrain than I did with the broken in V-10. My last truck was very reliable. Hope this guys is too. ("Better " in parenthesis since we all know that good gas mileage in a large truck is a relative term. lol!)

RE: Axle Ratio, new truck

I've always ordered a 4.30:1 (or similar) rear for the tow vehicle. Less strain on the drive train / added torque when you need it. With the new 10 speed transmissions, you don't seem to pay has heavily mpg-wise as in the old days for the 4+ gears. (I just ordered a new F350 with the 7.3L engine and 4.30:1 rear. )

RE: Books for first time RV owners?

RV'ing for Dummies provides a lot of solid information. It is also something that they can take with / access as they travel, even when they are in areas with less than optimal cellular coverage. You Tube also has some decent information.
