I’ve had a Laredo for a year and F250. First trip last May brought us through snow and wind in Nebraska and Wyoming. Been on a number of mountain and off-road drives since. I’ve had no noticeable problems. That being said any high vehicle will be susceptible to winds. The key is as always adjust driving to weather and road conditions.
I went through the same considerations you did about hard side and popup. I’m glad we went for the hard side. The big negative I think is gas mileage = poor. Not that the 2017 250 does great without the TC loaded. Don’t know how much better mileage would be with popup.
