Quote - "So the 6.7L has emissions issues, is that what you are saying? What are they? Did you also add a tranny cooler?

I need a long bed*. Gonna be a long truck.

This is fun, hearin' you guys pimp yer rides. "

I did not have a tranny cooler (mine was an auto) and I am not certain when they went from 5.8 to the 6.7 engine. I do know that the later engines did have some early emissions issues that involved tweaks to the ECM, but I do not think they were persistant problems. I know at the time I was researching my purchase, Ford was total trouble (FORD = Found On Road Dead - was the joke). Hope this helps.

One other thing, on the forums I subscibed to at the time, lots of folks were using boxes that modified the ECM (Bully Dog, etc) on Ford, Chevy and Dodge and many were having reliability problems. I would avoid one that has been "chipped" at all costs. Just my take...T

Yeah, the ideal truck will have been one driven by an older gentleman who went camping and fishing a few times a year... especially if already set up for a camper.

NOT one with big tires and a chip.

I came across a couple Powerstrokes today that were older and close to my price but with ~20K miles (!!!). Of course, they were LONG gone...

I just need to work out the numbers with the credit union and be ready to pounce. If anyone wants a line on a very clean Starcraft 10 R/T lemme know.

OK, Randy's Dodge is nice, but why over the Duramax?

Does it have the front deck like the Coleman E2? If so, how many motorcycles would fit on it? I remember going in there once in Ouray to use the microwave, was very nice...

No, the 10 R/T is the one without a deck (or I would be SORELY tempted to keep it as the bigger one also has a shower and that would solve our issues). The Chili would struggle a bit to haul the bigger R/T series. They are quite rugged with a square tube frame rather than C channel, and that means they will last longer on rough roads, but that means they are a bit heavier too.

Mine is the top of the line with all options (double LPG tank cover, privacy curtains, an exterior 110-volt outlet, manual fold-down double entry step, 15-inch spare tire and wheel, a 12-volt Fantastic roof vent fan, and sand pads on the stabilizer jacks, electric brakes, 16,000-BTU furnace, an RVQ carry-out gas grill that attaches to the side of the trailer, and aluminum wheels.) The awning was not terribly well designed and I have removed it.

Really great beds. The queen on one end is nice.

Here is a good review:

What's that worth on the pre-loved market Bill?

Well, per NADA I see numbers that pretty much match ads I've seen recently...

Pricing
Suggested List Price Low Retail Average Retail
Base Price: $8,526 $3,900 $4,700
TOTAL PRICE $8,526 $4,910 $5,925
It is super clean in excellent condition, 2006.

Oh, and I added a receiver in the rear for a bike rack...
EDIT: OOPS! Misstated the year. It is actually a 2004. Not that that makes any difference, but truth in disclosure and that sort of thing...

That's a great camper for someone with a cruiser or runner. small enough to tow yet big enough to stay in. I would have bought that in a heartbeat if I didn't have my E1. IMHO there is really nothing on the market that is a 10ft box with no deck like that. I also really liked the fan in the roof. It kept it cooler. I almost had one before I bought my e1 but i was second in line.

Roughly $5.5K, just curious.
