View Full Version : Just Got A New Tow Vehicle!!

We just bought an 05' Expedition and it is so much nicer than our 97' we traded in. The killer feature is the third row seat folding into the floor so you do not have to remove it if you need more storage. It also splits 60/40. They now come standard with the 5.4 L engine. With the tow package the specifications say it can tow 8,600lb maximum.

Now I am going to get a 20' enclosed trailer from Haulmark weighing in at 3,500 lbs empty.

The primary use for this setup is for my wife's business but I think it would be a shame not to buy a race car!! I am sure everyone would agree. :rotf:

I drove the Suburban before buying the Expedition and thought it a bit sluggish.

The expedition definitely has a better throttle response versus the Tahoe/Suburban...my main selling point was the $3k difference at my buying time...if you dont mind me asking, what did you give for it? My buddy has an '04 and he couldnt $25k for a trade-in (only 13k miles, eddie bauer edition) this past weekend on a new car...

Sounds like the best use for it would be to pull the car to events:D
