I mean, the Rona isn’t really affecting stuff now.

Riots on Mexican border?

8 to 10 weeks is what we were originally told as “normal”. But apparently orders are up this year, possibly due to stimulus checks making their way to contractors and then being converted into new trucks - one theory anyway. From banter on the ford truck forums it does sound like some orders are being built sooner than others, maybe due to different cab/chassis configurations and trim levels.

Let's hope it's sooner rather than later. 6 months is a crazy long time to wait.

Supply chain is still a fuster cluck. You can always do a nationwide search and see if there are any trucks that meet your requirements. Good luck.

I don’t have a tracking number yet but dealer said to expect as long as 24 weeks, so we are thinking might not be until August 1st.


WOW! I was told 16 weeks when ordered mid-Jan. Hope it doesn't take longer. New camper will be here soon so I'm kind in a spot.

I understand people wanting an estimate on mileage. But really, you'd need half a toilet roll to list all the variables that go into that number. I think the phrase "If you have to ask...." really is true in this instance.

I have a '21 f350, 7.3, Lariat, CC,LB,DRW,4:30 ordered and a '21 Northern Lite 10.2 LE, DB coming too. Mileage never entered my mind....
