At the rear of the Escape is a receiver. When I get to the camp site, and only for a short manoever, is it possible to insert a ball receiver and hook the back end of the trailer to the back end of the tow to place the trailer backwards on the site? Am I making a little sense here?
Of course, you'd only need to do this at a really crappy site where you couldn't just install the hitch wheel and turn it around by hand.
Due to the downward weight
on the front of the trailer, .... I'm afraid you will find that you will have a tremendous negative force (Lift) on the rear of the trailer, if you should attempt a rear coupling to your tow vehicle.
Not necessarily an impossible task, .... but I imagine a very uncomfortable one.
You would find that the tow vehicle has little, to no, traction coupled in this manner.
