You all sound like a bunch of children.
Please stop.

Easy, easy. You started the thread, it invites posts. The information you provided will provoke comments. This in an internet forum so you must know that they are going to come.

You posted information that, to any knowledgeable tower, would seem suspect so you have to know that you might get some comments on that (I suspect you have no idea). With a dry weight of something like 3763 you WILL NOT be traveling with a trailer at "4000 lbs. full", period. That is a red flag - and you need to heed the advice.

I know you are excited about your trailer and upcoming adventures. YOU have to make sure you are doing it right - by the book, and IMO especially, Especially if you are trying to tow with an Explorer (owned one...remember?). Just all info for your well being.

A diversion in the thread occurred...it has been resolved. You can't delete a thread but you can make a decision to stay or go. It is a great site with more helpful members than you will find on any comparable site in my experience - it is 100% your choice.

I once towed my 3000 lb 12 ft length cargo trailer (loaded) cross country with a midsize GMT platform truck (Buick Rainier/GMC Envoy/CHevy Trailblazer). It was equipped with a tow package and 3.73 rear. Rated to tow 5700 lbs. Thought it would be easy. After 2300 miles, I vouged I wouldn't do that again. I have no idea how automotive engineering departments determine their vehicle tow ratings. Couldn't even imagine puting another 1000+ lbs or 12 feet of trailer behind that vehicle. However, it was a great SUV. Reliable, comfortable, and the perfect mall crawler. I have friend who owns a current model year Explorer and says the same.

Thank you for that. We actually did a bit of research before buying the TT, We also installed Airlift spring bags as an extra SAFETY precaution and try to always be safe.
Getting blasted from all angles before knowing what WE actually have is what started it all.
Thanks for the apology, No harm no Foul. Happy Camping!

Bob, please accept my apologies if in any way you thought I was "blasting" you. You have a very questionable towing setup so I wanted to point that out. Many have that situation and have no idea. You apparently have an idea of the issues/problems you face with your combo and you're happy with that. In that event, good luck to you. I would load everything for travel, take it to a scale and compare it to the numbers on the sticker inside your door. Having the RV salesman and car dealer assure you you are OK is like letting someone pull the pin on a grenade, put it in your pocket, putting you and the family in the car and then tell you it's all "OK". Check those numbers on the Explorer with the trailer .
