I don't know about the Ford swivel but mine needs to have the door cracked open to swivel 180, after which the door can be closed and locked. Mine is a Chevy 4500 chassis, which I would recommend to anyone ordering new; however, there was another post that indicated that the manufacturers are having a hard time getting the Chevy chassis. If ordering new, and Chevy is not available, be sure to spec a Ford 450 or else you will get a 350. While carrying capacity is adequate, it's real nice to have another 1500+ of carrying capacity. I've added rear racks and a 4 bicycle carrier and still have a lot of load capacity to spare.

Agreed on 450. Mine is 350. Adequate but I'm very careful.

Just finishing up a nine day trip with DW and two grandsons (13 & 5). Everything has worked well. I did find my entery door a little tiight to close and noticed that I can adjust the door lugs. Easy to adjust, but will add a little blue lock tite later.
