Our take.

Payload is what our vehicle is carrying. GVWR is what the design, engineering and marketing department have agreed on. GAWR and GCWR tells us what we need to measure and watch at the truck scale after our combo is set up for travel.

Pick a tow vehicle with good characteristics for towing an Airstream (world's best towing travel trailer) as well as everyday family needs, the Expedition is a good starting point. Then a w.d. hitch and sway control; you can't beat the Hensley/ProPride design for towing ease and safety.

I tow a 34ft excella with a 2015 Navigator. Works great with weight distributing hitch and nice brake controller.

ford expedition el 4 x 4

Check your towing capacity for the EL. The longer wheelbase and longer rear overhang lowers the towing capacity. I believe the 9100# is only for the rear wheel drive configuration. It's kind of hard to decipher fords tables for towing capacity. It goes without saying that the 9100# is dependent on the factory installed "heavy duty towing package"
