We are looking to downsize our RV to a 2015 SLX 264BHW. The site says it's gross is 6,500. We have three small children, so we would like to pull this with a 2008 Expedition (V8). We will be doing a couple cross country trips per year, with short trips (2-3hr) in-between. We need a vehicle that can do it all, but it seems like the pickings are slim. Taking two vehicles on a trip for comfort would not be an option, either. Expy seems to be the best choice, but the more I read the more I doubt myself. Suggestions? It has a tow capacity of 9000 or 9200 (can't remember which). It seems like that's what most basic trucks are these days anyway... With the right hitch it seems possible. We would probably use this set up for a couple years.
Thanks in advance!
You'll be just fine pulling that trailer with your Expedition. The tow capacity with full tow package is 8900 (4x4) and 9200 (2x4). I pull our new White Hawk with a 2011 Expedition and its 5960# dry, 7500# GVWR. I don't fill the fresh water tank though and I drain wherever we go.
