Can I tow a light trailer with 2006 Ford Escape Limited? (newbie)
I figured this would be the place to go to get some educated answers to my problem. I own a 2006 Ford Escape Limited with factory tow package. We previously had a tent trailer and towed with no issues, we are looking to upgrade to trailer that doesn't involve a lot of set up/cranking/fighting/finger pinching. We are looking at a 2004 Kustom Koach Breeze BT165. The people that currently own it tow it with a minivan. The trailer weight is 2970lbs. I am concerned as I believe my Escape can only tow 3500lbs. That leaves 530lbs for passengers and cargo. Can my vehicle handle this? Do I need to buy a load equalizing hitch? Would I ever be able to tow through the mountains? I am in a bit of a bind as I have to let the sellers know if we are going to purchase this week and we are supposed to be camping this weekend. I really like the idea of a trailer with minimal set up but don't want to damage the vehicle or get into an accident. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

This is Escape Trailer Forum ( a brand of light weight fiberglass trailer ), not a Ford Escape SUV forum. Somebody may answer your questions, but you probably would have more success on a Ford Escape forum.
