Ford went to the new six speed transmission in mid 2016. It is a great improvement over the previous 5 speed according to those who have it. The new six speed will have PND421 as the gear selections. Some early 2016 model year motorhomes will have the old five speed.
I am happy with ours as the layout is what we were looking for. The only repair/replacement since we bought ours new was a stripped gear on the front arm of the large driver's side slideout. Had that replaced at the factory under extended warranty. Other than that everything else I have done myself and were things that average skilled persons with average tools could do.
Replaced the water pump and the step motor, replaced the vinyl flooring with luxury vinyl planks. I have done a bunch of other things to it but they are mainly upgrades/addons.
If sway going in and out of driveways, etc. is bothersome then an additional heavy duty rear sway bar and a front heavy duty sway bar will take care of that.
