If you ever run out of your own projects, you can come to my house.  I have an RV plug and place to dump in the drive, live in the "Funnest Little Town in America" (as per Rand McNally) and scenery to kill for.

Nice modifications Ron.

Do you think a 450 upgrade from the 350 chassis would eliminate some of the upgrades you did to your PC?

Hi Ron,

You ask a good question.

Our chassis is a 2007 E350.  All E350s made prior to 2008, Ford did not equip with a rear stabilizer bar.  Starting in 2008, Ford improved the chassis, both the E350 and E450.  But the improvements are not as effective as the aftermarket improvements I had done to ours.  The question is.....Are the Ford improvements enough?  Some people say yes, others say no.  It does seem that the 2100 and 2350 could benefit from aftermarket improvements.  The 2551 and larger not so much.  This based on owner comments.  I wonder if it has more to do with the wheel base to rear over-hang ratio more than the chassis itself.

If I myself was going to order us a new 2015 2350, I would get it on the E350 chassis and determine after a long trip, if aftermarket upgrades are needed.

If I were to order model 2351, I might consider the E450.  That is based on my feelings alone, and also that we would likely get the longer bed with larger outdoor storage compartment, instead of the pantry between bed and stove.  I know we would load up that extra outdoor storage, adding more weight over the rear axle, hence considering the E450.

So my answer to the question you ask me is....I don't know.  Smile

Think about the load ratings you might want. I got our first PC, a 2350 on the E450 and only needed/wanted to change the shocks to Bilstein shocks. I never had to worry about how much stuff my wife packed.  LOL
