Is anybody towing a 16' with a Ford Escape like mine, and if so, any 'real life' advice or issues? THANK YOU!

We tow our 23' with a mid sized car. We have towed the trailer empty and with the trailer loaded ready for travel (about 800lbs heavier) You feel the weight
slightly when getting up to speed but once up to speed you really don't feel the weight

I once asked a well known towing specialist about the reliability differences between cars, minivans, and pickups when used as tow vehicles.
He replied the he had put 1,000's of combo's out on the roads and from the feedback he had received form those customers it was the trucks that had more mechanical issues than the cars or minivans.
For years we towed with a Nissan Mini Van and even with 464,000klm's on it the tranny was fine. We did install an external tranny cooler.
