I have bought the "mother" and the "father" for build from fans to screw capts to match the fabrics for inside finish, not talking about tanks, propex, the everything, to be honest saved here 30% ( I am like 28k in parts, yes went nuts) before all this inflation went crazy, no van yet! Still awaiting since August 2021 original order. Speaking about 5k price protection were can find the stipulation from Ford?Congrats and fingers crossed for Vanski ... I guess my attitude is kinda like coguzzi... but in my case I'm beginning to think this forum is bad for my mental health. I ordered a 2023 in August and if I hear nothing by the spring I'll buy a used "beater" and flip/sell the Transit (to the dealer?) if it ever arrives. Also like North of 40 I was under the false impression that I could make small changes to my order so long as I had no build date. But this forum suggests that making any change to my order will get me a higher price and/or Balanced Out. And... stupid me... trusting that a van will happen "someday" I bought an expensive pile of 80/20 to do a camper build ... might be putting that up for sale in the Spring.... this Ford situation is pathetic. I wonder if the Sprinter situation is better ...
