This is a photo in Destin Florida. Such a beautiful place. White sand is spectacular.
From here we stopped in Brunswick Georgia and weathered a mighty thunderstorm. Our last night before home was Fayetteville NC.
We are home and safe after many many miles. I loved every mile, hoping this will not be our last cross country trip.
Thanks to all that followed us and wished us well. Time to end this thread, so I will put this one to sleep. Thanks all, Barry

Update from Ford a month ago was for the truck to be ready to ship on 4/21. Monday I got the e-mail saying it's in production/assembly. Hoping I get it in time to put 1000 miles on before loading the camper.
The closer it gets, the harder the wait.

As of last week, the manufacturing date on my Everest has slipped about 2 weeks from 5/24 to 6/10.
As much as I wish they could keep to the original date, I would rather they take the extra time to build it right.

I'm also happy they're willing to let me know the dates are slipping as they find out. I would rather know about the delays as they happen instead of scheduling time off and then fining out a week or two before delivery that it's going to be another month.

There's still no update on the truck, and Ford doesn't give out any scheduling until the vehicle is in manufacturing.
My dealer thinks there may few if any 2023 model Super Duties as Ford may have oversold the 2022.

Glad you are almost there, my dealer was scarce on info of when my camper would arrive. I had to talk with Host for information like that. Wish I had picked mine up in Oregon. You are gonna love your camper for sure. Barry

The latest on the truck is that it came off the line on 3/29 and is scheduled to arrive at the rail yard the first week in May. Dealer says up to a week for truck to deliver to them, then 2-3 days for delivery to my house (dealer is several hundred miles from me).

In early March, my camper had slipped to 6/17 (1 week delay). As of yesterday, it's still scheduled for 6/17. Figure a week to ship to the dealer and they want 3 days to prep and test it, so I'm looking at the last week in June.

Host confirmed my Everest is ready and should ship Friday. I have an appointment to pick it up on 6/30. I got my truck a bit over a month ago.
It's so close I can taste it.

Congratulations on your new Everest. You will love it. I will advise you to do a detailed walk thru. I had three small issues, bathroom door, privacy curtain, hatch over bed. These were all exposed the first day of ownership. I have emailed and called since we returned home. I have yet to receive parts for repairs. So frustrating to spend the money we did to get the run around for such small issues. I'm happy with our camper, just not the warranty service.
Take care Barry

I'll be camping near the dealership for almost a week to test everything out.
