F350 ShortBed Dually vs regular F350 Dually

So today I saw this Shortbed Dually. I've always known that they are rare but I never knew how rare. But apparently they are special order. So my question is 1. What's the pros/cons of the short bed Dually vs the regular bed Dually. 2, how is the resale compare between the the two? Should these be typically priced higher or lower. 3. Is there anything to look for when checking this truck out? I forgot it's a 2008 6.4l shorted Dually, 115k miles, i think its a XLT and they are asking $28,900. I'm looking for all the info you guys can offer.. Also if you need me to ask any questions to the dealor, let me know ill ask
Thanks

Pros would be easier to maneuver in tight spaces, it will fit in most parking stalls without having the a$$ end hanging over, can bumper tow more than a single rear wheel F350, and higher payload capacity. Cons would be a dually isn't as good as a SRW in snow, mud, slop, etc, can be a pain to tow a gooseneck/fifth wheel with a shortbox, have 6 tires to change instead of 4, and somewhat rougher/bumpier ride from the extra leaves. Don't know who would buy a dually shortbox unless they bumper tow huge loads and throw heavy stuff in the box.

No idea what resale would be. Depends on availability, the economy, mileage, condition, trim level and year. See what other F350 duallies are going for. I think this truck should be priced slightly lower than a longbox because this truck is for a very niche market. Don't see many people with shortbox duallies because they usually haul goosenecks and fifths and there's more room to maneuver a trailer with a longbox. I suppose you could get a sliding hitch though.

I'd get the dealership to run an Oasis report. See what's been done it.

I love the shortbox regular cab Dually's. Not so much of a fan of the crew cab's though.

Looks like I can get a regular bed for a better deal than this

Shortbed Duallies are hot shotter specials. The are made so the can tow a longer load and still be legal. As far as the gooseneck problem goes you just can't have a tounge with a deck on it.

It will tell you what maintenance/TSBs have been done on the truck through a Ford dealership.
