I will check that EV4d, I made sure the trailer was level, but it was higher than hitch height.... I did move (Bounce)the hitch around a little to get the best reading on the scale.... How do you find your expedition towing your 213?

I tows the camper extreamly well. I drove a 2014 left over V8 before i bought this one...and its night and day. It's the same drive line as the f150. I will get back to you when i get back from this trip as to how it pulls in the mountains....
Thanks again
Those are pretty close to the numbers on our '03 Expe (our "max trailer wt was 8950#). Our 23B weighed 4420# loaded which was about half the max trailer number yet we were within 300# of the Rear GAWR.
My point is you will probably exceed the GAWR well before reaching the maximum trailer weight.

The CAT Scale is your friend.

We love our Expedition and it tows the X213 perfectly. Passing slow trucks on the freeway and even mountain passes are no problem. We are a bit jealous that the Expedition now comes with Ecoboost, which we do not have, but its been a great towing vehicle.

It's a real hot rod. I've seen photos of others doing burn outs with them I bought it used with 20,000 miles and love love love it!!! Rumor has it the 2018 will have a 10 speed transmission

And 50 more torques, assuming it stays identical to the F150.
