Looking at the Ford towing guide for a 2013 Escape shows a max tongue weight of 350 lbs. Based on my experience when trying to load our 184BH for Two adults and two little ones, I think the Escape tongue weight may be exceeded. I also have a feeling that he may be over on the payload capacity based on experience with how Ford figures this also.

It is a nice looking rig though!

Congrats! I just purchased the same trailer. Planning on towing with my Odyssey which has the same tow capacity. Did you need weight distribution? We have talking been about it in my thread here:

Nice trailer indeed. Got ours last fall, did our first trip to Hershey PA in October. Everything was great, did find a leak in the front window though. Rained both ways while enroute - (figures). We added a small table just in front of the "sofa", pedestal mount, great for putting a morning coffee on while sitting down especially when dinette is in "bed" mode and wife is still in the bed. We also mounted our 22" TV with DVD on a swing arm under upper cabinet nearest door. Hint: there is a 2x2 structure beside the door frame for a solid mount. Looking for a bubble window for the door now.

Any pictures? I would like to see the table and the TV mount.

I don't have many pics at all of our trailer. This pic of the table was on my wifes iphone. Ill see if she also has a pic of the tv mount. The base is from Ikea $4. and the top is just a cheese tray with a hole drilled, could also use a small cutting board. I tried to keep it round, no sharp corners to bump into. The table leg is threaded and screws into the base, very stable.Click image for larger version

Here is the location I mounted the TV swing arm. The TV is now in the house for the winter, but you can see where it's mounted, I believe there are two 2x2's beside each other, it's a great location gets tucked away neatly and extends out for viewing from any location in these enormous trailers. lolClick image for larger version

Thanks for the pictures. I like the table idea. As for the TV it is interesting. Your 12v/coax jack is in a different location. Mine is on the wall above the couch right below the radio. My plan is to get a bracket like yours and mount it to the bunk wall. The main issue is that there is no AC outlet where my jack is so I need to wire that as well.
