Steve (a.k.a. Stevesway),
Last month, we pulled our Scamp13 to Scamp
Camp (Sebring) with our 2014 Ford 2.0L FWD
With 240hp and 270ft/lbs of torque, your Escape
should be able to pull either a Scamp13 or a Scamp16.
When we bought our 2014 Scamp13 in Oct 2013, our best tow vehicle had 180hp, 170ft/lbs
of torque, and was rated to tow only 1500 lbs. I configured for minimum weight
the wood interior (Deluxe), the front bathroom, the AC, the furnace
, and the awning
. I think
we got most all of the other options (including the 54" bed and the front and side cabinets).
There are pictures of our Scamp13 in a thread that is titled "Bigger bed = Smaller table" or something like that. If you want to see them and can't find that thread, send me a PM.
(I suppose you could also search the forum for threads with my userid?)
For now, our Scamp13 seems appropriate for our needs and wants. If Scamp
to put the 54" bed in a Scamp16 Layout 4, I suppose we might be tempted. I'm pretty sure
that the Escape would handle that with no problem. Since my sister and brother-in-law have
a Scamp16 Layout 6, maybe they would let us pull theirs and test that theory? 😉
Good luck with your hunt and decisions! 😊
