SOLD: 2017 Ford F350 Super Duty Platinum ($52,000)

We are selling our 2017 Ford F350 Super Duty Platinum Crew Cab Long Bed Diesel 4×4 for $52,000. We love the Camper Life. Our first setup was a blue 2004 F350 Laredo and a 1997 Elkhorn. We got tired of all the repairs with the Ford 6.0L PSD, so in November 2017 we bought a new F350 Platinum and have loved the truck.

The truck has a GVWR of 11,500 pounds and a payload rating of 3,108 pounds. It’s been well maintained. Any failures have been resolved and it has almost 130,000 miles, mostly highway miles.

I added several upgrades to the truck to haul the camper. A SuperHitch Magnum 30,000-pound with Torklift camper tie downs and 4-foot extension. Firestone Airbags, Air Lift Compressor with WirelessAir App. It has the normal 7-pin connector for camper electrical hookup and we added a Lance Jack too. Lance is special. It has hauled the campers well.

Like all vehicles, they break down. I’ve had a couple but keep everything fixed. We had to get a new $11,000 Ford transmission (May, 2022) and an AC condenser. No engine issues. The 6.7L diesel has worked well. Oil changes have been done regularly.

I also like Classic Rock and listening to tunes a bit louder with good bass. We added a $6,000 Audison and JL Audio system with JL Audio 12-inch Stealthbox under back seats, new front and rear door speakers and several panels of dynamat in the doors. It ROCKS!

Tires wear out, so I recently put new ones on the truck. It has custom wheels with new tires Nitto Recon Grappler LT295/65R20 (Oct, 2022). It also has a level kit so the tires fit right.

The truck is super comfortable. It has a moon roof and powered everything. Heated/cooled/massage seats in front and heated seats in back. The Adaptive Cruise is nice. I’m also selling it with a set of Ford winter mats. We really like the Extang Solid Fold 2.0 Tonneau cover too.

Accidents happen. It still has one small dent in the front bumper left side. I also backed into a pole. The tailgate and bed corner ended up bent in all the wrong places, so we had to get a new bed side and tailgate. They did a great job fixing it.

The Elkhorn camper had some structural issues (large bump in road with three kids in cabover bent it). We’ve talked about a new camper for the outdoor activities and eventually retirement. It was a LONG wait, but our 2021 Lance 1062 showed up a year ago. The Lance 1062 is a great camper, but it put the 2017 F350 at its weight limit. So, we waited another year for a 2022 F450 Platinum dually to haul it. I’m looking forward to setting up a new truck to haul the camper.

Ford wasn’t feeling generous, at all, with their trade-in offer, so I’m selling the 2017 F350 on my own. I am asking $52,000.
