2007 Expedition EL for 06 29 BHS? New to towing.
We just picked up a 2006 Jayco 29 BHS with the following stats:
Unloaded Vehicle Weight (lbs.) 5555,
Dry Hitch Weight (lbs.) 755,
Gross Vehicle Weight (lbs.) 7500,
Cargo Carrying Capacity (lbs.) 1945.
Has Reese weight distributing and sway control hitch
We are looking at purchasing a 2007 Ford Expedition EL with factory tow package. Curb weight 5805, GVWR 7,700, Towing Capacity 9000, Wheelbase 119", and axle ratio of 3.73.
80-90% of the driving will be not towing. The majority of the towing will be in Michigan with some trips out west or out east.
This is our first venture into a significant trailer. We want to be safe (for ourselves and others) but premier performance for the few trips we may take through the mountains at the expense of complete overkill to get groceries for the other 99% of our driving doesn't seem logical either.
Family of four, one dog, that needs an everyday driver while also meeting our towing needs.
