That is a very nice looking rig. I am glad to see that they are finally using Diesel engines. They are much better in every way. Now I would like to see them add air ride suspension! Enjoy it!

Nice to see super c's. How's the room in the front? Are you ready for your next trip. Enjoy being a pioneer with the new f-series RV.

Plenty of room up front, very comfortable to drive. Handles much better than my F250 did while towing my 5th wheel. Lots of power and never struggles on the hills. Yet still gets 11 mpg.

How have the last few months went? Any quality issues? Fuel economy stayed about the same? Anything that you've had to replace or change out?

Very nice. I am so happy to see others buying these rigs. We are picking up ours, a 35SK, this Saturday and I am looking forward to it, even though I have some anxiety about moving from a Winnebago to a Four Winds.

Thanks!

That is a beautiful rig. You also get better front crash protection than a class A.

I have to ask.....how much? What was retail vs. paid. This helps us all know what they are going for. How long a contract did you get.

The last four outings have been without any issues at all. Very comfortable and enjoyable. We now have 3,300 miles on it and it is averagine about 10.5. The best has been 12 and the worst about 9 in the mountains. Nothing has has to be replaced, but did add a satellite in the roof. It is now perfect.

Not bad at all for what you get. Nice deal, for sure.

How was it for mountain power and engine noise. I'd imagine that she's very quiet, as this is a Ford designed cab and they really try to keep their diesels quiet. Do you have to add that extra fluid to the fuel system, I forget what they call it....uriah or something.

We are paying $119k for ours. It has the diesel generator too, which was something I really wanted. Once I get it home, and figure out the electrical/charging system (how it is connected to each other) I will be adding 500 watts of solar to it too. I have a TriMetric waiting to be installed so I can get good load and charge data. Should be about perfect at that point.

Power in the mountains is superb!!!! Never need to drop below the speed limit. Yes the cab is quiet, and comfortable. Stereo system could be better, but it is acceptable. All diesel Fords now use the DEF, and soon everyone else will too. It's not a big deal though. You only have to add about a gallon every 5,000 miles and it only about $10 a gallon if you buy it at an auto supply.
