Hi folks, I am new to the group. I just bought a 2017 Ford Escape
with 2.0 Ecoboost and tow package. It claims to accommodate up to 3500lbs gvwr. It has front wheel drive.
I have read various forums that basically warn me not to tow an RV, but they are all from folks who never owned this car.
Do any of you have experience towing with this car? Or perhaps a year or two older? I think they used the same engine etc last year and before.
I am trying to decide which trailer to buy. I hope to get something with a permanent bed, dinette, and bath. Right now the Escape
17 looks interesting, or a Scamp
16 layout 6. I believe the Casita
won't work since I am 6'2". Dry weight
on most similar models hovers around 2500lbs with options included, so that's where I am aiming. But I'd like to hear from folks who have actually towed with the Ecoboost Ford Escape
to see if I'm being realistic.
Also, any other model suggestions appreciated. I am in Phoenix, and there are few fiberglass models to view here.
