I have to agree with Larry on this one, so be careful how you load your TV/HTT because IMO you can "exceed" your TV weight limits rather easily under loaded conditions. Doesn't mean your TV can't pull it, just it may compromise the reliability of the TV's drivetrain.
Just for point of reference, your Escape's 3,500lb Tow Rating is based on the curb weight
of it's base model which only includes a 150lb driver and a full tank of gas. The total weight of passengers, cargo, and TV options gets subtracted from the 3,500 Tow Rating. IMO your TV will be at it's actual maximum tow rating before you even load anything into the HTT.
Ship Weight ?????lbs
Also, watch how your RV dealer tech adjusts your WDH, because it will be adjusted for your TV/HTT "unloaded" weight (if adjusted correctly). You will have to re-adjust your WDH once you load your TV/HTT ready for camping..... makes a big difference on handling.
