The F250 had optional V10's through to 2010...they're 3 valve 2005 through 2010. Now the only gas engine choice is the 6.2L V8.

A F250 crew cab with a V10 may be easier to find the a Excursion V10.

The more I read the more I'm becoming scared of buying either one. This is because it appears that both engines have problems blowing out sparkplugs. Has anyone here experienced this?

Yes, but what about when NOT towing. Huge difference I'd bet.

I just went through this search and the price delta between F250 and Excursion was incredible. I was able to find several F250 screws with >100K miles and they were still ~ $15K. I ended up buying the Excursion and saved about $6K.

We thought about that as well and decided that this was the primary TV and not much else. We expect to put 6K miles or so a year on it and be happy.

For what it's worth. We drove the Excursion all over the country last weekend and averaged 11.4 MPG. With our 2008 F150 Screw, similar driving will result in ~ 13 MPG.

Ah...I meant they quit making the Excursion in 2005. Sorry about that.
