Ford Expedition for 1973 31ft AS International


We're working our way through a modest remodel of a 1973 31ft Center Bath we inherited from my wife's great aunt.

Basically we're fixing what can be fixed and replacing what can't or isn't functional for a family with small kids. Our biggest change is adding a front U dinette in place of the gaucho bed.

Anyways, I'm in the market for a used tow vehicle. Seriously considering a newer (2008-2014) Ford Expedition. While I'd love to have the '15 with ecoboost, but that's just not in the budget.

Anyone have experience towing a big AS with this generation of the Ford Expedition? Of course I'd get one with the tow package.

I will bring AS to scale to get an accurate weight when it's finished. I anticipate it being in the 6,000-6,500lbs range fully loaded.

What's your mpg towing?

Expedition would be both a daily driver and a tow vehicle.
