    5 years of research and finally, I ordered a truck

    I've been talking about a new truck since I joined this group in 2016. At that time and ever since I have been interested in the Superduties.

    Well today, I pulled the trigger on a 450. The debate in my head 350 vs 450 is over . I can now, over the next 12 to 24 months, figure out what toyhauler we will get, in the meantime we will use our trusted Outback which we love.

    Thanks to those who have entertained all of my questions via threads or in DMs. Get ready for more RV questions

    So, I have to ask, what made you decide 450 over the 350? I went through the same thing and ended up with the 350. Also Congrats!!!!

    We’ve had 2 F-450’s (a 2021 4WD and now a 2022 4WD… 2018 350 DRW-4WD before that and a 2011 350 DRW 2WD before that)… Love the 450 (for the most part). All were the Lariat trim (that’s the best value… IMO).

    The 2 complaints we have (and they’re somewhat minor and related to the tires)

    1). The empty ride is atrocious… knew that going in though.
    2). The 19.5 continental commercial tires hunt under certain road conditions

    The 450 results in a noticeably better tow (vs. the 350). The extra wheelbase associated with the wider front track makes a difference… especially in cross-winds. I’ve towed the same big 41’ TH across the same section of the northern plains with both the 350 and the 450… 450 is definitely better.

    Enjoy!

    Curious… what did your Ford Dealer quote you for delivery timeframe?

    The turning radius and the larger brakes.

    I realize that any RV will have brakes so the bigger ones on the 450 are just bonus for me. I have never driven either (well not very far) but I think the better turning radius will be nice to have if and when we get a 40+ foot rv. The truck will be for towing and snow birding in a couple or so years.

    The 350 has the better payload but I will make sure to stay within our limit. I would think that the 450 will be fine with a max gvwr of 20,000 lbs. I hope that the wandering and harsh ride of the commercial wheels and tires will not be an issue, and if so I will deal with it. I wish I could have tried them both side by side but that wasn't going to happen.

    I know from all of my reading they are both great trucks. My little head also like the wide front fenders
