New member!

And a good day to all!

Have started to read a lot of threads on the Escape 5.0/Ford 2021 5.7 foot box and I have read about hitch weights and payloads and I feel like I am starting to get a feel for it. Will read more and will ask questions when the need arises.

In brief, I have a 2021 Ford F-150 4x4 crewcab with a 5.7 foot box and 1307 pounds of payload which is juuuuust the limit for an Escape 5.0 according to what I have read so far. Some have stated that they have 1350 pounds of payload and it works. I am reading to see if the numbers check out before I order anything.

Have yourself a great day!

Be careful to keep that back seat and bed empty. I tow my 21NE with a short bed crew cab F150 and a payload of 1760lbs. GVWR is 6500lbs. With my normal load of grandpa, grandma, 6yr old, 9yr old, firewood, camp chairs, kayak & gear, kid toys, etc. along with ~550lbs of tongue weight bring me to a truck weight of +6300lbs most every time I go over a scale.

Just remember these fg campers last forever, so this may not be the last tow vehicle you will be using.....

Shedding some weight

I read recently about a truck camper owner with a crew cab that removed the rear seats and even the floor mats to increase the payload a bit.

Hey Jim LovellFord here
We just received our Escape 19 and am trying to register the different components (electrical/mechanical) for warranty coverage. The information that we received gives model numbers but not serial numbers. In order to register, serial numbers are needed. Does Escape have these. Is it just a matter of making a request? I would think these would be listed.

Other than the air conditioning, I do not recall registering any other Escape components for warranty purposes.

warranty coverage

Can I ask why trailer owners wouldn't register their electrical/mechanical components with the companies to be receive warranty coverage if there was any?

I didn't and didn't have to, to have warranty work completed on my 2009 17B, but that was then.

I am not aware of separate warranties on the heater, the toilet or any other component, except for the 24 month Escape warranty on the whole trailer which includes these components.
