Our weight transferred is about 300 lbs. You can check it on a truck scale. We have 100 lbs. going back to the trailer and the rest up to the front of the tow.

Re Highlander vs. Santa Fe
When I suggested Highlander over SantaFe (which we have) I neglected to mention that we too, had another Hyundai, an Elantra which has been a great car! In fact, it was the Elantra, that made us feel good about getting a Santa Fe. For some reason, the Santa Fe has not worked out nearly as well, hence my suggestion about looking closer at the Highlander for your tow vehicle. Good luck on your research and decision making for both the tow and the Escape!

Thanks for the info.

2012 - is that the latest generation or is it one gen before the current one? Hyundai seems to have made a huge jump in their latest generation Sonata and Santa Fe. I'm hoping that the new Santa Fe will be as good as my Sonata.

Check tow rating on new Santa Fe. Apparently you have to get the 7 seat version to get the 3,500 lb. tow rating. The standard version has been downgraded, like everything else.

Actually, the 5 seat version does 3500lb. 7 seat version will do 5000lb. And the 7 seat version only comes with V6.

OK. I stand corrected. My buddy has a Santa Fe and doesn't want to buy the 7 seat to get the V6.
