You might try the below dealer. They are located in Longmont, Colo. just north of Denver. Showing 4 F350 DW. Website show a ultimate for slightly over $90k.

At this time it is difficult to get a Ford F450/F350, GMC/Chevy 3500HD or Ram 3500 due to computer part shortages. Some dealers are asking over MSRP due to the empty dealer dots. You may have a difficult time finding the trim line you want. The vehicles you are looking at on the internet now may not be available when you are ready to purchase your vehicle. I would research all the trim lines very well. So when you see a vehicle on a dealer lot you automatically know what options the vehicle has or does not have.

We decided to wait with the RV. I've tried booking campsites for August and it just felt so very crowded. Not a whole lot of availability for the kind of campgrounds we liked. On top of that, the HD trucks are very difficult to buy. They get snatched up real fast and they are way overpriced. Pretty sure they will depreciate like crazy next year.
So, we decided to start with just getting to the US where we'll probably spend a few months in AirBnB's and watch the market. Still planning on our setup, but waiting for the big price drop and for campgrounds to get past the summer vacation.

That’s a great plan, plus it gives you opportunity to really sort out how you want the truck and RV. You could even order both the way you want.

Welcome to the new world of RVing. Things have really changed in the past few years and not necessarily for the better. Campsites are in short supply and more expensive than they were just a year or two ago.

You have to plan many months out now. Hopefully the market place will settle down a bit over the next year.
