Mind sending me that info?

Tweetys.com has the best pricing on B&W hitches that I found. I didn't order from them, but they were the cheapest. :-)

I believe it was hitch source on eBay and etrailer for the wiring harness which was about $60/$70. On the go now, but let me know if you need more. I can give you specifics when I get home

****** UPDATE *******

Just got a call from local dealer on a stock unit. We talked a bit and he's confirming the #'s now with his superiors. If all works out we are no longer having to order! Has everything but the second A/C, but we can put that on no problem.

I'll let y'all know. Waiting on his return email.

That's awesome if that's all they have to do. Hope it works out for you. I do remember reading about B&W getting in on the market for hitches to fit Ford's factory setup. Today's panning out pretty good for you.

Yep good day so far, supporting the economy, I don't think I'm going to get the slider setup. Everyone with the short bed like mine says they've never ever used it. I think with the newer extended pin box and the shape's of the newer style 5er's I should be fine. Now it's just deciding to keep everything Reese Elite in the back or throw the B&W on there. The B&W is about $300 cheaper. I already have the bags so we should be good to get the truck and 5er riding pretty level. Waiting on final numbers with trade now. They couldn't do the trade value quoted but they still equaled all other offers for the new unit price. And it's helping them by taking a stock of their hands.

Deposit has been made..... and the winner is....... Tom Raper Richmond, Indiana.

Thanks to all that participated in our journey:
1. Wana RV - close but no cigar
2. Specialty RV Sales - Lancaster, Ohio - highest bid of all the competition
3. RV Wholesalers - would have had a deal, didn't want our trade - best bid of the competition

Tom Raper, who sold us our original 3150, was given the opportunity to price out their stock unit. They came in second on price for the unit, and second for the trade but after all numbers they finished first in the total deal. They are also including in their original quote to us the additional A/C unit that we wanted up front. Even better, I just got off the phone with our seasonal camp and they will upgrade our site to 50A!!!!!

What a day! What a week! What a month! After all this time we thought the 365saq was for us and in walks this awesome 36qbok. I can't wait to start camping!

Congrats on the purchase!! Tom Raper is where I purchased/ordered also. I think you purchased the one we looked at based on the inventory listed on thier site. Since we custom ordered we paid a little more than a stock unit but wanted the super lounge, slide toppers etc..I had read some not so glowing reviews regarding TR but so far have had responsive service on the sales end. I priced a similar unit from Tom Stinnett in Clarksville, In. Not only were they high on the quote they flat out lied to me about fire marshall inspection and sales tax. The wholesalers didn't want to take my trade. Glad to find another qbok owner and I look forward to sharing info...When do you plan on taking delivery? I also would like to get your take on your PDI. I understand they video tape the pdi which sounds handy for review purposes...happy day all of the way around.
oh...I also went with the B&W companion. Shopped a little and a small local hitch shop installed for $1400 including tax...Also had airbags installed and 7way plug installed in the tailgate frame inside the bed. Should be ready to go soon as it's on the production line this week.
