Iíll have address the squat when I return home. Still havenít been able to a Tackle bed contents. Maybe that will help. Thanks for your thoughts.

Am surprised these new trucks squat with any bumper pull Escape. Our 2013 Yukon doesn't have any squat and we only use the WDH for a smoother ride in wind and funky highways.

yeah, my F250 doesn't dip even a hair when I hitch the E21 to it.

If you regularly use that truck unladen and not towing, I'd suggest getting a Ride-Rite airbag kit on it, that way you get the best of both worlds, you can level it when heavily loaded and hitched by adding air (my Tacoma liked 35-40 PSI when near its max capacity), and run it at 5 psi maintenance pressure the rest of the time for a stock comfort ride.

Great to have another Escape in the SE and hopefully one day we do cross paths. Enjoy the ride home.

Safe travels,

Always a vacation favorite. On the road now to see the National parks in Utah then back to SC.
It pulls great behind my Ď18 F150 5L screw. Donít think I could have a better decision on trailer or tow vehicle.😀
Does your new trailer have the high lift axle, or is that the standard height?

Trailer: Escape 21 Build due for May Completion - towed by 2018 F150 S/Crew 3.5L EcoBoost XLT/FX4 6.5 Box

Lovely set up. I too have a 2018 F150 SCREW 3.5 XLT with all the Ford trailer tow stuff on board which includes uprated suspension. We have a 21 on order collection date in May so I would be keen to know if the squat sorted itself when you have the chance to unload, etc. Ours will have the higher lift option. Being a complete greenhorn to towing trailers I am looking forward to trying out the trailer back up assist.

Enjoy and safe journey
