You could very well be right. Maybe I'll have to start a business that demos trailers and boats or maybe just delivers them on spec. or sells them like a travelling salesman. and these are my demos.

Hi: Harry Kellogg... We have the 2" receiver on the back of our 5.0 Escape 5th. I am sure that in making the frame for a trailer Escape could add the required reinforcing. That being said the extra tongue wt.+ boat& trailer could upset the delicate balance of the 5th.wh's 3500# axle
We just returned from a 2000mi trip down to Virginia and some of the roads we found there had their ups& downs...usually in 1000' increments. What I need now is a brake reline tug& trailer... and powerful washing soda for my PANTS!!!

Very nice. Thank you for the pictures. I'm still waiting an answer from Escape. Maybe I'll have to bug them.

Thank you again for the post.
