Why did we chose this vehicle for ourselves?
** It's a 4x4 **
We are a family of 5 and wanted comfortable living and sleeping but at the same time did not want to be limited on roads as most vans and RVs are. A 4WD was a must for us and we are thankful we made the decision as we could never have travelled the roads we did or have seen what we saw with a non-4x4 vehicle.
** Crew Cab **
Since we are 5 people, we needed to drive in comfort. This big truck seats 6 comfortably and has 6 seatbelts.
** Gasoline **
We specifically wanted gasoline because the diesel in South America does not do engines younger than 2006 any good.
** F350 **
As we are carrying weight with the camper, the higher block and stiffer springs of an F350 make towing easier on the truck. The F350 tow package allows the car to use engine brakes to slow down, great in the ups and downs of the Andes, and great news for the brakes. F250s and F150s do not have this.

All in all we wanted a reliable, heavy duty vehicle in good condition and low mileage (relative to the year) to get us across the Americas with no issues. The F350 has not disappointed.

Details and history
We bought the truck in Canada in January 2017 with 167,000 km on it. We've put 11,000km on it ourselves, and expect to put another 11,000km on by the end of our trip. The truck was bought from a Canadian company called Ledcor and I have requested a service history from them so this should be available to you shortly. I am the second owner. Since the initial service in Canada and transmission fluid change in USA (maintenance), mechanically the only issue we have had since purchase was a required replacement of a fuel pump, ignitor coil and spark plug, which happened in Colombia. We went to the Ford Service Centre in Bucaramunga as I don't trust the local side-of-the-road mechanics here. We will ONLY ever take it to a Ford Service Centre for service and maintenance. I have full receipts which are kept with the rest of the paperwork you will receive with the vehicle. We are a family of five, and both myself and my husband are in our late 40s so we do things properly to maintain the vehicle in the best possible state. For us, it is not worth the risk, time and money to not service the vehicle properly.

Registration and transfer of title
The vehicle is registered in Alberta, Canada and it is easy to swap registration to your name if you have had a car registered in Alberta before. Long shot, I know. Otherwise, all you will need to cross the border in any South American country is a notary paper stating that I am transferring the vehicle to your ownership (bill of sale needs to be included) and that I give you full authority to operate the vehicle. This is known as a “poder”. A trip to the DIAN will be necessary to swap country specific immigration paperwork, for both of us. The vehicle is registered both as a car and also a motorhome and can therefore be imported into Chile and swap over to Chilean plates if that is preferred or if a local intends on purchasing.
