What a pile of crap this 450 thing is. A vehicle with safer capability to maneuver in bad situations and to stop it if the trailer brakes were to become inoperative, resulting far less exposure to them, should cost more to insure. BULL****
I have a 2006 F450 with hauler bed and it has been desprung (to make it ride WAY better) and I have paid the higher premiums for 10+ years. I did find out that commercial policies cover the collision damage on towed unit where personal policies only cover liabilty of anything a towed unit damages. My extra premiums were more than made up for by the payout on a trailer that went off a big drop off shoulder.
