I put rear rotors and pads on both sides and a caliper on the driver's side of a friend's Ford F53 chassis delivery truck.

Assuming you're on an F53 gasser chassis, the rotors were about $125 for a set, the pads were about $50, and the caliper was about $125 (maybe $75 after the core charge?), all from AutoZone. It was a straight forward brake job, so I would think you could get it done for around $400. Almost anyone should be able to do it.

Typing a reply like this one makes me wonder what possessed me to buy a Class A Diesel Pusher that's so much harder to work on than a gasser!

If you don't have a truck dealer handy look for a shop that does truck tires. Many of them also do basic work like brakes and lube. They will be able to handle the body style while most Ford dealers or shops in general will not. It would also be a good way to check out a mobile mechanic service.

Well, I recently needed a new caliper on the driver side and new pads on both rear brakes(even though my rig has a little over 20K miles on it). But the main issue was a problem with gear oil leaking which caused the brake issues. Whole sh'bang ended up costing me $1,700 but as with all mechanical issues the largest expense was labor.

And that is why a lot of us DIY as much as we can. Parts will be 1/2 - 3/4 the cost and labor is zero. At current shop rates we can even buy a new toy, er tool, or two. ;-)

Check RockAuto for parts. I just ordered two sets (front and back) of Wagner severe duty pads for $35 a set. rotors run about $50 each.

Check the fronts also - generally the fronts and rears wear out about the same rate on my MH.

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

I agree, Rock Auto has saved me money on lots of parts in the past.
