If your planning to upgrade to a 5th wheeler or plan to haul extraordinarily heavy loads buy the 350. If you sticking with the TT, save the money and buy the 250. The only difference is the rear suspension, axle, front springs. Even that is marginal. Ford can combine both models actually. I tow a 334RBTS with a really heavy tongue weight and bed full of firewood at 70 MPH, don't even know I have a load back there.

Been playing round with my salesman at the ford dealer I buy from, looking at a 350 dually. They are sayin' the 250's bring better resale / trade. Cant figure that out but just wanna pass it down to ya'll. Was looking at a dually to get the tire sway under control. The wife needs to bring everything from the house.

My guess on the f250 holding value is, recenty heard or read that it was the single most owned vehicle in the US, not just truck, vehicle. Very much in demand.

I had a 2013 half ton and realized very quickly it was not adequate to pull what I wanted. Started looking at 2500 and 3500 trucks and the difference is payload is large...is around 2500 compared to 4100....if u r going to pull a decent sized fifth or th, the extra payload capacity makes sense to me. 2000lb pin weight leaves very little for cargo and passengers and 2k pin weight is a pretty normal fifth. I ordered a 3500 so I don't have to worry about payload (aside from the big boy toy haulers).
