Tang, are you referring to Trailer Sway Control? And that's an interesting use for the hitch. Kind of makes me want to put one on my Escape just for that, despite never having to tow anything.Tang said:No problems yet... as for towing, I don't do a whole lot of it. The only time I have towed was when I moved from my friend's house to my current place of stay (which is about seven miles of driving) last summer. I rented the 5'x8' U-Haul trailer and filled it to the top with my junk/stuff. I purchased an OE Ford 1.25" hitch adapter and then a 3,500 ball from a nearby autoparts store. No drama during the tow, which included a highway stretch. I don't have the towing assist software on my Escape, but I'm sure it'd be pretty nice to have.Rakerburn said:[Have you had any issues with it only being 1.25" hitch? Do you happen to tow anything from time-to-time?
In my previous experience with Escapes (dad works for Ford and often leased them since he thought they were a good fit for the family), the nice thing about the hitch setup is that I've used the rings to tow a few people out of ditches.
