Towing Escape 21 with Nissan Armada
Anyone else’? We tow our 2019 Escape with a 2018 Nissan Armada SL. We think it works great. Plenty of power and great handling. We use the E2 FastWay WD w sway control. Makes the unit ride smooth and very stable. Gas mileage is not great probably average 12 mpg with high around 14 and low 9, mostly depending on wind driving 60-65+. Lots of room for two and our lab. We load the vehicle fairly full and heavy keeping most weight in front of the rear axle. We live to move around, camp and explore on lots of gravel side roads. The Armada is great off road too, but we take it slow and avoid really bad roads and trails. Not towing we get 19 or better on highway at 65-70 mph. Purchased our 21 one year ago and love it. Got the Frameless Thermal windows extra insulation, power awning and standard dinette (not u-shaped. Purchased our 21 one year ago and put on over 13000 miles without any problems except for the sail switch lint once. The Armada has performed as well as hoped. I would highly recommend this as a great match for the 21. The indoor storage is large and beats a pickup topper IMO. WE also have Thule topper from past travels, don’t need it but with that we take an inflatable boat and gas motor (Scout 365 and YAMAHA 4 hp) on our fishing trips like to northern Sask and locally.
Love to hear from others on the Armada and E21. Glad to answer questions and give polite suggestions. Good travels to all.
