Question about Ford E-250
You can contact a Dealer for Service Bulletins or go to the NHTSA.com site to look up their recalls. Yours is the first burnout headlight problem I have seen in over a year at Fixya.
One thing written on the box for bulbs is not to use your bare hands to handle the bulb when installing it. Use gloves or a plastic baggie to handle to bulb. Make sure the bulb is clean with no prints or smudges on it.
Next, have the Alternator checked. Ask for a test at Autozone or Oreillys specifically for the charging system. Then ask them to let you turn on your headlights for a second test. Compare the two results.
If the Voltage tests are OK you probably have a Ground problem somewhere. Your Headlamp bulbs are acting like fuses. The Ground side of the wire does not have a fuse. Without tracing every wire you can try checking each socket for corrosion by removing running lights, even taillights to see if there is corrosion.
The last possibility is vibration. There is a body bolt under each front fender ahead of the front tires. Excess shaking can break bulbs. Tighten the rubber body mounts.
