I might be slow on the uptake but I didn't see a welcome post so here goes. I'm scanning all the info and experience I can from everyone else because I have the weird dream of retiring early and traveling around in a TC with the DW and myself. We have already have a 2017 F350 DRW and want to upgrade the suspension before we purchase a TC.

Welcome! Be sure. Some of my friends retired early and are not happy they did so.

I don't think many here are old.

Not at all weird, when I was younger, (much younger), I wanted to retire at 35, but that went by without notice as I learned that I obviously knew nothing about economics and their relationship to retirement. [emoticon]

Welcome aboard!
Do you know what camper you want?
A F350 dually should handle most campers. Maybe wait until you get the camper on it to decide which, if any, mods you want.

Welcome, we do have a lot of people here who just want to insult, put down and generally disparage anything someone posts. Just block those jerks and jump in.

Best regards,

Welcome. You have made a good choice for retirement. At least give it a try. I've owned several RV types, but the TC seemed to be the best for traveling and sightseeing after I retired.

And as mentioned, there are a few a$$holes on here. You will soon know who they are; just ignore them.
