Just taken ownership of our 19' Escape.

Feeling overwhelmed by the amount there is to read and understand. First challenge is to get proficient at reversing into the driveway. We had initially thought our Ford Ranger would suffice. However, we went on the side of caution and moved up to a Ford F150 FX4. Had no problems driving home to Sechelt from Chilliwack; lots of spare towing capacity and braking was no problem.

Welcome, Peter. It's a steep learning curve for sure and I don't even want to talk about reversing into the driveway. You'll love it though.
