RE: 2017 F350 DRW - Anyone Ordered One?

xlt, crew cab, 4x4, manual t/c shifter, aux switches, off-road pkg, camper pkg, rear camera, 40/40 seats, 4.30 gears, probably some others I can't remember ... and not a bunch of other options I don't want.

RE: 2017 F350 DRW - Anyone Ordered One?

They are still making great deals on the '16s from what I can tell. Sure, you'll get some additional functionality that you might not want, but it may still come out cheaper than a '17. I wish I could find a 2016 set up like I want. There are so many options on those trucks, I've NEVER been able to buy one off the lot.

RE: 2017 F350 DRW - Anyone Ordered One?

Hey Boatycall! I still visit this forum occasionally. Wayne and the forum members are doing a great job keeping it going and providing a great source of TC info. I read your 450 thread a while back. I don't want to put that much money into a new truck. Below are some very rough MSRPs for 4x4 PSD XLT Ford trucks spec'ed out like we need: $42k 2006 F-350 DRW (current truck) $51k 2016 F-350 DRW $61k 2017 F-350 DRW $75k to $80k? 2017 F-450 DRW I wish I had got up off on my butt and ordered a 2016 last Fall. But I waited around too long and missed the 2016 order window. I've never liked getting the first model year, but that looks like what will happen. That 450 looks nice, but more than I want to spend. We are getting close to retiring and this will likely be our last TC and TC hauling truck. We will be doing some semi-full timing.

2017 F350 DRW - Anyone Ordered One?

We plan on ordering a 2017 f350 drw to haul our current lance or maybe a new 1062 lance. Just wondered if anyone has ordered one. I understand they are taking orders and production begins 11 July. I'm wonder what the tie-down situation will be with an aluminum bed and a new chassis.

RE: 2017 F350

Yep. Frame and the aluminum parts I would rather not have. :)

RE: 2017 F350

Hey, thanks for that link. Lots of good 2017 info over there. We had planned on order a 2016, but I ******* around too long and missed the cutoff date. We plan on ordering a 2017, but I have always been a little gun shy of new models. I guess we will get our order in sometime in the Fall.

RE: 2017 F350

The production start July 11 2017 in Kentucky. Is Ford taking orders for 2017 F-350 DRWs yet? If so, does anyone have one on order?

RE: Atwood TC Jack Rating - 3,900 lbs

http://www.americanrvcompany.com/Atwood-80417-Ball-Screw-Jack-Heavy-Duty-Remote-Control OK, looks like the 5,000 lb version are wireless.

RE: Atwood TC Jack Rating - 3,900 lbs

SCREW SYSTEM PER JACK Acme 2,250 lbs. 1,250 lbs. Ball 3,900 lbs. 2,200 lbs. Heavy Duty Ball 5,000 lbs. 2,800 lbs. Seems like all I find are the 3,900 Ball Jacks. I'm guessing that is what came on my camper back in 1996. I haven't seen the 5,000 HD Ball Jacks for sell. I assume those are what's going on the new heavy campers.

Atwood TC Jack Rating - 3,900 lbs

If we keep our Lance camper, I would like to replace the old Atwood jacks with new Atwood jacks. But all I can find have a 3,900 lb rating for a set of 4. http://tweetys.com/atwood-80488-electric-switched-ball-screw-jacks-in-polar-white---set-of-4.aspx What Atwood jacks are going on campers that weigh more than 3,900 lbs? Thanks, Brad

RE: Atwood Jacks vs Rieco titan jacks

I have a 98 Lance legend and the Atwood jacks are acting up. Would I better off to rebuild them or buy new? If I replace them is there any reason to replace them with Rieco Titan? Any comments? We have a 96 Lance Legend 500 with Atwood jacks. I too am considering replacing them. They still work, but they are pretty old and the manual crank shafts are very rusted.

RE: Lance Squire 5000

Brad - which converter/charger do you recommend? mine looks to be the original magnatek. If I was doing it now, I would probably go with this: http://www.progressivedyn.com/pd4600_converter_replacement.html

RE: Lance Squire 5000

Looks just like our 1996 Legend 500. Make sure and take a very close look at the Magnatech 12v converter/charger. They are a pos and almost caught our camper on fire. It got so hot that it turned the linoleum black. It also cooked the water out (and ruined) of 2 or 3 deep cycle batteries.

RE: Looked at a New 2016 Lance 1062 Yesterday

Our lance shower drains to gray also. I don't know about the 1062.

RE: Looked at a New 2016 Lance 1062 Yesterday

Anyone know which holding tank the shower drains into?

RE: Looked at a New 2016 Lance 1062 Yesterday

Brad, I've been looking for one to look at too. I just checked the Bankston site and assume that is where you saw it. It does remind me of my Host Yellowstone, only shorter and that would be a good thing. When I get back in town, I'd like to look it over. Don't buy it until after I get back :)) Yes, its at Bankston across the street from their main building. Take your heart medicine before you go because they have the invoice right on the table inside the camper. I think I suffered a mild stroke, but was able to make it back to my truck under my own power. If we buy one it will be a special order because we are pretty specific about the options we want and don't mind waiting.

RE: Lance Squire 5000

looking at a '97 9'10" 5000 squire, includes electric jacks and 2500w generator and double door fridge/freezer. assuming all checks out on inspection what would be reasonable price to offer ? That 5000 was the pretty much the same camper as our 1996 500, except the 500 came with a lot more options as stand equipment. I think we paid about $14k new with no generator. Ours has been a great camper, but check the floor area around the door for weakness from water damage (as kohldad said). Ours never got it but some did. If you put it on a Ford Super Duty, you will need a 2" bed spacer. Also, expect to have to change out the sorry-a$$ Magtek converter/charger if it is still original. Good Luck, Brad

Looked at a New 2016 Lance 1062 Yesterday

Beautiful camper and massive floor space as compared to our non-slide Lance. I guess that will be the camper we buy if we get a new one. Anyone own a 1062? Brad
BradW 05/24/16 02:24pm Truck Campers
RE: Older Lance Camper Dinette

There are no bearings - that's the problem The "slide" is just 2 long bent metal brackets on the bottom of the table with a square wooden piece on the pole. It's a very Mickey Mouse set up. You just described exactly what is on our 1996 Lance 500. No rollers or bearings. Ours slides OK, you just have to push/pull evenly with two hands. Yours may be tight and just need some redneck adjusting done to it.
