Towing with a ford explorer maggie 3-6-03  
Hello, we recently inherited a 21' 1987 terry taurus travel trailer. we own a 1996 ford eddie bauer explorer with a v-6. i think that we are at our limit to tow this trailer but would like to know if there is anything that we can add onto our explorer to aid in towing this trailer. purchasing a new tow vehicle is out of the question at this time. my husband has added a transmission cooler, what else can we do so that we can use this wonderful trailer?
thank you in advance.

I want to travel to Tampa Florida to pick up a new diesel 40 rv. I have to travel with 2 dogs and want to pull a small trailer with personal item. U Haul say NO. Now what do I do? I can't afford a new vehicle.

Get a good equalizing hitch. Add airbags to the rear suspension. Replace your tires with a higher load range. If you don't have an electric radiator fan, add one. Lastly, slow down.

Maggie, for some excellant information on towing, go to The information contained there should help you decide on whether your Explorer would provide a good tow vehicle, and all factors to consider when making your decision.

I have a 92 ford explorer and a 95 ford explorer I have pulled a similiar camper with both of them. I recommend adding electric brakes to your vehicle, Its not a problem going forward, people can wait on a slow camper. The problem is stopping. Air shocks are also a good Idea although I never bought them. good luck!
