Ford Expedition Towing Questions

    Your vehicle has a max towing capacity of 5000#. You need the 5.4 engine with a 7 pin connector(for trailer brakes) in order to tow 8500#. You cannot tow a 26 ft camper with the setup you have.

    Cob is spot on. GVWR is the total weight of the Expedition - vehicle plus occupants, luggage, etc not including the trailer. GCWR is the total weight of everything - Expedition, occupants, luggage, and the loaded trailer. GCWR = GVWR + loaded trailer.

    Good advice. I had the same vehicle. I will say, the 4.6 is more capable than you think. You put a little 4x6 trailer behind it and you feel it, but you also put a flatbed with a car on it and it tires just as well. Get a 22 foot trailer with no slides and have fun. That should put you in a comfortable place to tow. I hope you have fun.
