I love all your votes for keeping the old truck but that will not happen.

His dad (the previous owner) did not run it at all (140K miles in 20 yrs) & every part that would have aged out awhile ago is now starting to go and leaving us broken down on the side of the road with a TT behind. Our mechanic is WONDERFUL but also honest and getting parts for that truck is getting more & more difficult as they are just not being made. DH is NOT mechanically inclined so for our future travels (we will be sunbirds) we want a reliable TV & for me a comfortable TV (I know - we looked at upgrading the interior after we did the exterior but then paused to consider new).

This truck has been cared for to the utmost since DH has had it and all of you voting for us to keep it please feel free to contact me about purchasing because it will be for sale in the next 4-6 months. Two offers already & entertaining more.

Good choice.

My old TV was a 2000 f350 7.3 SD dually. Only 135K miles on it but its time. Been A great truck and I will miss it. But the 2017 F250 I got last month is doing the job just fine.
Got a 2017 with the 6.2 gas engine. Shifts a little more, revs a little higher but has no problem pulling our 5th wheel and its a MUCH better ride for both us and the 5th wheel

De-winterizing and camping today today in Iowa.
