Oil change interval

Have a new 2013 390FL with 360 Cummings engine, with just over 2000 miles. I am planning a 7000 mile, 8 week trip out west and back across the northern tier before returning to Florida. Question: I really prefer not to get it serviced for its 1st oil change during this trip, but it will have 9000 miles on it by the time I get back. What is the opinion of whether that is too much miles or not a problem? Current oil is the original mfg installed oil

I would change it now before you go on your trip.

I would change it now to remove any break in materials and then go with synthetic.

Guess it is too late for that, but I could get it changed during the 2 weeks I am laying over in Golden, CO

O sorry didn't know you were already on the road. If you can get it changed I would do it. And then you will probably have to get it changed again when your get done with your trip.

I'm I missing something, everything I've seen incliding the cummins manual says 15,000 miles or 1 year. had my first oil change at 8,000 but that was only becuase we knew we were going on a 8,000 mile trip to Alaska.

Thanks for all the inputs. I have decided not to risk it and already scheduled a service appointment at the Camping World in Golden

Just checked my 2008 Dodge 6.7 L 350 HP Diesel manual and it says earliest of 7,500 miles or 6 months. Surprised that a 5 year newer and 10 HP more would double the oil change interval!
