I've been waiting to order a 2021, but this showed up on the lot. Yes, 13,000 miles.
They are asking $72k
The list was $80k
Has almost what I was going to order on the 2021.
Why should I wait for the '21 or take this '17?
I'll be towing a 5th wheel, 15,000#

Major differences:
10-speed transmission
2020 Power Stroke upgrades (1050 ft-lbs torque)
Pro Trailer Back-up Assist

Ziebart rustproofing already (how much does that weigh?)

Eeek! 72 large for a 3 year old truck? Yeah, I would just order exactly what I wanted to know I'm the first one to fart on the seats.

I agree. After looking further, the payload is undersized for the 15,000# 5th wheel. If you go by the 20-22% rule of GVWR for hitch weight, that gives you 3000 to 3300# in the bed on the 200# hitch! So that eats up all the 3310# payload capacity!
I need to go LB or DRW :)(). LB will get me 4500# and DRW another 500-1000#
These F350 get up in $$$ quickly!

I could see people paying that for a 19, but a '17?!

Get the new truck.

My .02 cents.
