2008 Ford F450


King Ranch package


Equipped with a 6.4L diesel engine, automatic transmission with Tow/Haul feature, and 4.88 rear differential ratio. The truck is a two-wheel drive vehicle and will include a 22,000 lb capacity Reese fifth wheel hitch (already installed).


Current mileage on the truck is roughly 64,000 miles. The truck has been faithfully maintained with regards to oil changes and had new tires installed in June of 2018. (Roughly 1500 miles on the tires.) This is a two-owner vehicle with the first owner only having the truck for one year. We purchased the truck in the fall of 2009 and it had 46,000 miles on it at the time.

Being a King Ranch version of the truck, it has cowhide leather seats (meaning a much heavier leather than most seats.) It also has a rear DVD player and screen with two sets of headphones (never used.)


Disclaimer and Additional Information


The main thing with regards to a disclaimer is that we have priced the Mobile Suites at a low price due to axle issues. The trailer is equipped with two 8000 pound axles with Lippert Never-Lube bearings and axles. Two of those bearings (both on one axle) have begun to show leakage, and since parts are no longer available for the Lippert Never-Lube hubs, new axles will be needed. Additionally, the tires are in good shape, although they are getting along in age. I have not seen any evidence of cracking of the tires, but they will probably be needing to be replaced within about a year.


We have priced the Mobile Suites at $48,000 and the Ford F450 is priced at $35,000.


The truck will not be sold separately unless the Mobile Suites has already been purchased.


Additionally, there is the distinct possibility that the Honda EU3000iS portable generator will also be included in the sale (said generator is about 15 years old but still in good condition). I should also add that some things that we currently have in the RV may be included in the sale, such as some RV parts and other items of interest to the buyer(s) that we will no longer need.


Other options for any buyer(s) would be that they may choose to accept or decline the furniture currently in the fifth wheel. Those include the Select Comfort mattress (some folks don't like them), the La-Z-Boy Reclinaway love seat recliner, and a jack-knife couch in the rear of the coach. Anything that the buyer(s) decline will be used to furnish an apartment for us.

Terry, For your information the bearings are available from etrailer. They are a Chinese bearing but are available. I bought one from them, to have a spare just incase one failed out on the road. The hubs are NOT available. Walt

I would get the bearings replaced before trying to sell it with the idea of the new owner first thing having to replace the axles. I think the bearings are available from more sources than just eTrailer, but certainly eTrailer makes it easy to find them.
Surprised to hear you are going back to house living--have followed you ever since you got the Suites. We went FT May '17.
Best of luck to you with the sale and change of livestyle.
Joe

Slade at Rolling Retreats was the one that did the checking for parts for the Lippert Never-Lube bearings. Now, I don't know where he checked, but etrailer was mentioned, and he was told that the "source" ran out of both hubs and bearings about 6 months ago.


As for us not changing the axles prior to selling, we thought that any new owner might want the choice of axles that were installed. In addition to MorRyde, one can get axles with regular tapered bearings that one takes out and inspects and repacks, or there are axles by Dexter that have another form of Never-Lube bearing.


We will end the full-time RV'ing, but we are even now looking at smaller travel trailers that can be pulled with our Expedition. With that for an RV, we could still do some RV'ing, perhaps a couple of months in the Spring and a couple of months in the Fall. I'm not giving up on traveling and photographing the beauty we get to see.



As for photographing beauty, check out the Smugmug link in my signature to go to my Smugmug site. Click on "Browse" and you'll see folders and galleries and each folder has additional folders and galleries.

Are they the bearings for the Lippert system or the Dexter system?

Terry, As far as I know the nerlube bearing fits both systems. I had a 2010 MS a few numbers from you and the one I bought from etrailer was the right one. Walt

Far as I know, there is only one NevRLube bearing for our trailers--the 50mm one. It was the one on my '05 w/7K axles and the same one on the 8k axles I replaced the 7ks with.
There is a 42mm bearing that isn't for our Suites at all.
And there is no way to put regular bearings on a NRL axle.
