      Here's one as we set out on our maiden voyage with the new (to us) camper this weekend. Still to add the Air Ride airbags and re-addjust the Equalizer hitch.

      Yes They are just not in this picture. It was the first day of the set up before I bought cjains and towed.
      Exactly how strong are the smaller size receiver hitches?

      Here's my 2002 Ford Ranger Off Road version 4x4 with 4.10's and the 4.0L pulling my 16ft car trailer with my '88 Samurai on it. Pulled for the first time a week ago 100 miles with no problems. I was easy on take offs as my UPS guy has a '00 Ranger and just blew his tranny pulling his 3800lb boat and I was around 4500lbs (1800lb trailer and about 2700lb sammy).

      Vacation in Drumheller, AB, Canada

      Just got back from a family vacation to Drumheller Alberta. It was the first trip with our trailer and truck. The Ex is a 2007EB with the 4.6L and tow package. The trailer is a 2007 Rockwood Roo 23' Hybrid with 3 fold outs. The Ex handled it beautifully. It has plenty of power to buck the prairie wind! It also pulled very strong through the badlands which has some steep grades to climb. The gas mileage was a little painful at about 8.5mpg but towing costs. It was about a 1000km round trip.

      I feel it matches quite well. I can definitely tell the boat is back there on hills but the explorer tows it really well!

      This was Snowball's 4th of July present- towing my boat down to Sugarloaf Lake in Portage. Sorry for how dirty she is. I usually keep her much cleaner. :D

      Here's my '96 pulling my Toy back when I first got it.

      J/K.... I only pulled it forward about 20ft so I could unload the truck. The jack on the trailer is actually diging into the ground. :D
