5th wheel or standard?
The F-350 gets you what you need at 14,400# - 15,000# depending on equipment (SRW/DRW, gearing, Std, Ext, CC etc).
The F-450 gets you Std DRW and 2,000# greater towing capacity at 17,500# (like for like).
Sooo, if you spec carefully, the F-350 will be enough, but if you want equipment and go over 15,000#, you will need the F-450.
According to the pre-release towing guide from Dec. '06.

I Support: Trailer brakes an every axle over the towing vehicle's GVW; CDLs for RVers; Safety inspections for ALL vehicles and 6 axle trucks (97K GVW proposal).
