That looks really nice. Maybe that full paint took it longer and delayed it. What dealer options are you having installed?

Looks nice. Be aware that the dark slide ends will definitely heat up the inside so make sure you have enough AC to take care of that.

You said it will be on a seasonal site....but not when taken on the road for sight seeing. Don't do it with a 150. The 1/2 ton is nowhere near capable of safely towing that trailer, so, get a new truck if you are going to tow it ANYWHERE.

That includes an "empty tow" to the permanent site. The last thing you want is a broken rear axle on an overloaded F150 on a busy highway or worse, on a lonely back road where there's no place for a tow truck to turn the rig around.

The dealer options are some grab bars in the shower stall. An Additional hand rail to go up the stairs parallel to curved hand rail as part of coach. Slide toppers on all 3 slides. The rig will be delivered with either F250 or F350 from dealer. Most likely it will be the F250 because it has the long bed vs. the F350 has one of those sliding hitches in a short bed which I am not a fan of.

We ordered ours direct from and RV Show in the beginning of Feb and we could not get a delivery date. We knew it was done but could not get a date. We called our dealer and he went down and got it for us and that was the end of May. We were in the middle of the Change for 2012 to 2013. Keystone called and asked me if it was okay if they put some of the new 2013 on ours. I gave my permission and instead of 2012 we got a 2013. It worked out and we took it for a shake down the end of May.

From the date you ordered it as a 2018 and if it exceeded the Build Out Date for that year then you will be getting a 2019 truck instead at no extra charge. My last 3 trucks from Ford I ordered them in May and did not receive until the end of August. The first Car/Truck off the line for a Model Year is called Job and the last is called Build out Date. That is the last of the parts for that model year are in the Pipeline to the build plant. It also depends on when the order was put in by the Dealer. Most dealers will mot order any vehicles until all Finances have been approved.

So the story ends happily but the take away for everyone should be to buy off of inventory even if you have to drive somewhere to get it unless you are able to wait for an unknown date!
