We Ordered A 2017 With An Advertised Gvw Of 14,500 And Gcvw Of 22,000 (e450) But The Manufacturer Substituted A 2018 Product With A Gcvw Of 18,500 (e350) And Gvw Of Only 12,500 Which In My Opinion Is A Major Safety Concern Considering That Most Vehicles Sold Will Likely Be Overweight When In Use And It Clearly Will Not Meet The Needs Of What We Expected To Receive. Thor Ignores Our Concerns And Has Offered No Solution As To How We Can Safely Use This Motorhome Considering It Is Borderline Overweight With Minimal Loading And Passengers.

Mileage was 22 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FDWE3FS4HD. Ford E-350 2017 problem was reported in MISHAWAKA, IN. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 0 mph.

The Windshield Has Started To Crack On The Left (driver’s) Side. There Is No Indication Of Impact. The Crack Starts About 2 Feet Up At The Edge Of The Glass, Extends Across The Windshield A Few Inches And Then Turns Down. It Has Continued To Slowly Grow. I Believe This Is A Defect – Possibly Stress Related. I Have Seen Dozens Of Others Reporting The Same Problem.

On 6/23/15 One Of Our Vans Had The Rear Strap Holding The Fuel Tank Break And Drop The Rear Of The Tank To The Road. The Van Is Converted To 4×4 By Quadvan In Portland But No Modification Is Made To The Fuel System And It Was Sold By A ford Dealer Brand New. Our Local ford Dealer Here Fixed The Strap But Probably With The Same Part. Yesterday 7/27/15 Our Second Of Two Vans We Bought At The Same Time Had The Same Thing Happen. The First Time Was On A Washboard Section Of Mauna Kea Mountain Where We Run Tours At Approx 15mph, The Second Incident Was On Highway At Approx 35 Mph On The Way To Mauna Kea Mountain. We Are Very Experienced Mechanically And Note That Uniquely ford Is Using An Alloy Final Attachment To The Frame Whereas Our Previos Dozens Of ford Vans Have All Used A Steel Final Attachment. In 25 Years We Have Had No Such Problem With Our Many Many ford Vans. As Any Latest Model ford Van In The Now Discontinued E350 Series Could Have This Problem If Driven On Rough Roads We Feel It Is An Inherent Fault And Should Be Subject Of A Recall. A Worst Case Scenario Is That The Front Of The Tank Drops And Contacts The Road Causing A Fireball And Immolation Of All Onboard..!! We Have Contacted Newberg ford In Portland Oregon And Are In Correspondence With Them To Let ford Know.

0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died. Mileage was 12000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FBSS3BS4ED. Ford E-350 2015 problem was reported in HILO, HI. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 35 mph.

I Recently Rented An Rv From Cruise America. I Do Not Have The Vin But For Id It Was Their Unit 254869. It Was Built For Cruise America By Four Winds On A ford E350 Chassis. Almost Immediately I Found I Could Not Drive It At Posted Speed Limits. I Felt Unsafe At Any Speed Over 60 Mph And Less Depending On Weather And Pavement Conditions. The Posted Limits Were 65-80 In Co, Wy, Mt, And Sd. The Vehicle Was Light In The Front End And Nothing We Loaded Caused That. Every Gust Of Wind, Every Bump In The Pavement, And Every Truck Blast Pushed It Off Line. On One Occasion, A Truck Blast Pushed Me Onto The Shoulder And Before I Could Correct It, A Snow Pole Broke The Passenger Side Mirror. I Reported This To Cruise America When We Returned The Vehicle, And Again By Email. They Don’t Seem To Be Concerned That This Vehicle And Others In Their Fleet Like It May Be Unsafe To Operate At Posted Speed Limits. I Am Attaching Two .jpgs. One Is Of That Specific Vehicle And Clearly Shows That It Rides Higher On The Front Wheels. The Other Is Of The Approximate Location On Us-191 Between Rock Springs And Jackson Wy Where The Truck Blast Pushed Me Onto The Narrow Shoulder. I Consider That Vehicle, And Possibly Others Built To The Same Specifications, To Be Unsafe To Operate At Highway Speeds. Can You Do Something About This? If This Is Not Within Your Jurisdiction, Would You Please Advise Me Of The Proper Agency To Submit This To Or Pass It On? Thank You. *tr

While Stopped At A Thruway Rest Area In W. Virginia. It Had Been Raining Quite A Bit On This – Our First Day Of Vacation. Our New 2014 ford e-350 Would Not Shift Out Of Park! All Of The Dash Lights Started Flashing, Then Stopped, Then Flashed Again. This Happened A Few Times. The Truck Would Start Would Not Shift Out Of Park. After Discussions With ford Roadside Assist, The Truck Was Towed To A ford Dealer. The Main Engine Electrical Component’s Compartment Was Not Sealed Correctly, Letting Water Into The Compartment And Shorting Out The Electrical System In The Truck. The Whole Electrical Component Had To Be Replaced. Thankfully, We Were Stopped In A Rest Area When Discovered And Not On The Road! This Is A Safety Issue, Since The Truck Could Have Stalled Out At Any Time While Driving. The ford Dealer Had The Truck For 2 Weeks, While Working To Find And Fix This Issue.
