Hi all, I have a question about the trailer towing abilities of my 2000 Expedition, one of the all-time favorite vehicles I've ever owned. I can't imagine an SUV driving more like a car than this vehicle. I have the Eddie Bauer edition for that year and my understanding is that it's comparable to a Lincoln Navigator (only without the higher propensity for being stolen!) 4WD 17" wheels 3.55 ratio limited slip axle trailer towing package 4-corner load-leveling suspension As per a document I found online giving the trailer hitch specs, the Maximum Trailer Weight is 6900 lbs. HOWEVER, on the step bumper of the vehicle it says (molded into the plastic covering) "Max Tongue Load 400 lbs." and "Max Gross Trailer Weight 4000 lbs." 4000 lbs. vs 6900 lbs. is a big difference. Also, the Max Tongue Load of 400 lbs. seems quite puny, as well. I'm thinking about getting a travel trailer and most of the ones I'm most interested in are in the 5000 lb. range, so this discrepancy is a major concern. I have to think I'm not understanding something to think there's a 2900 lb. difference between what the document I downloaded (an official Ford publication, I believe) says and what's stated on the bumper. Thanks in advance to anyone who can educate me regarding the above.
