Towing 23 Kiwi w/Ford Explorer Jim Kilgallen 2-6-03  
Want to purchase Kiwi Model 23b. Tow vehicle will be a 1999 5.0 V8 Ford Explorer with tow package. Will there be a problem towing a 23' Kiwi trailer?

Absolutely not, it won't be a problem. If you read my early mail, I have a Silverado, V6 and have not experienced any problems at all, you'll be fine.

Just make sure GVW of trailer is less than towing capacity of Explorer and make sure you put a brake control inside the Explorer. You'll be glad you did the first time you have to stop.

I have 69 Aristocrat that loaded ways probably 3000lb and tow it with a 3/4 ton Silverado and it need the brake controller to make me not sweat.

I just purchased the Kiwi 23B and tow it with a 2002 Explorer with the 4.6 V8 and it went up and down the road like it wasn't even behind me. Pulled nice and straight and did not put much strain on the motor from a stand still up to speed. Hope this helps answer your question. If I can be of further help please feel free to e-mail me.

I just purchased mine and towed it with a Chevrolet, Silverado 1500 V6, it towed fine, I too did not feel any strains, I was happy to find out I did not have to upgrade to a V8. With my V6 I still have an additional 600 lbs before it reaches GVW max weight.....I also have the brake control system inside, I guess that makes a big difference when traveling. If any of you have any suggestions as far as adding equipment to stablelize while on the road let me know.

We want to buy an Kiwi 23B. Our vehicle is a 98 Explorer 4.0L SOHC. Is this going to work for us?
