IsSmith, how is pulling that trailer w an Escape? I have a Ford Edge and pull a 154BH and felt that perhaps I needed to upgrade to an F150 to be doing it right.

Pulling with Escape

I can also pull with my 1997 Grand Marquis but there is definitely an F-150 Ecoboost in our future!

humbleguru & IsSmith - I'm pulling a 185RB with a 2012 Escape, V6 AWD, without problem but them I'm at low altitude and not handling mountains. I'd probably have a different attitude if I was in Denver or Tucson. I went with the 2012 rather than the 2013 - accepting the lower MPG - in order to get the V6 and heavier body/frame members.
