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!!!
