here's my recently new purchase. 2005 Expedition. just under 90,000 miles. It handles a trailer pretty well. I have towed 7700 pounds with it so far and it still rode very well and didn't labor or struggle. I am most impressed with the ride quality and the brakes. the air conditioned seats are a big plus as well. So if you see me around kalamazoo feel free to flip me the bird.

This is the motorhome/tow rig. 2008 W3500 6.0 18ft box. Usually sleeps 3.


I'm easy to spot on the highway. This brick gets 10.7mpg towing from Silver Lake.

Here are pics of both of ours, the truck has not towed the CJ yet but has pulled the enclosed trailer it goes in. The motorhome has no idea the trailer and Jeep are behind it, but I know the truck will. Both have Cummins, the truck has unrestricted exhaust, the MH will as soon as it comes out of storage in April.
