2020+ E350 SMB vs F350 ext cab Flatbed Popup Truck Camper


Looking for a great combination of offroad, onroad, and offgrid boondocking capability for Baja, Alaska, Moab, and eventually international travel. I'm looking at the 7.3L engine which is tuned a bit differently but otherwise close to an apples to apples comparison. Have any of you owned both a sports mobile and a popup truck camper? Which platform do you think will fit this use case the best?

E350 Pros
: The advantages I see with the e350 is 1) over the hood visibility 2) shorter wheel base and turning circle 3) larger 40 gallon fuel tank. 4) Narrower and possibly shorter 5) Easy access to living area 6) About 2 feet shorter 7) easier to use with roof down in bad weather 8) Highly capable 4wd conversion.

F350 Pros: The advantages I see with the F350 & pop up 1) Stock 4wd capability & serviceability 2) Many aftermarket suspension options 3) better drive modes / electronics / trim packages 4) 10spd transmission 5) More exterior storage space 6) Easier to navigate living space when top is up 7) Overall rig will be about 1500 lbs lighter.
