Re: Towing with a Ford Escape
Hi Gabe, and welcome to Escape. I guess you're EscapeX2! We pulled a 17' Freedom Deluxe with our Honda Pilot (no WDH) and then with a Jeep Wrangler (4 door) with a WDH. The Honda would feel like it was "skating" at higher speeds, down hill, on curves. Little uncomfortable, but only at higher speeds. The WDH seemed to tie the trailer to the Jeep, essentially making the car and trailer one piece, thus give us a longer wheel base (the thing Alf was referring to). I didn't tend to drive the Jeep as fast as the Honda when pulling, so that helped too. I would imagine with the WDH that the only problem you'd have would be similar to Sandra, you'd just have to be happy going up the hills a little slower in a lower gear. Bottom line is, you won't fully know until you try it, but I will guarantee you one thing, you'll love your Escape!!!!
