We pull our 28 ft Ambassador with a 2001 Excursion Limited, 4x4, V-10...we looked around and waited till we found what we wanted...
These big SUV's are dirt cheap these days, and you can find some great deals out there - the auto dealers don't give 'squat' for these at trade-in time, so you can take advantage of a great TV at a modest price!
We wanted the V-10 engine, and most Excursions were loaded with options when sold new (up to 2005). Ours had about 115K miles on the 'clock', and runs like 'new'...check em' out...Ford also has just about the best side mirrors as standard equipment on these models!
This SUV pulls the AS without any problems - and I like the idea that the TV is a heavy, stable platform for towing...plus we have lots of room for our stuff inside it's lockable cabin...I've added a front hitch receiver so I can maneuver the AS into a tight spot if needed...
We get just under 10 MPG average, when towing the AS...when we're towing at about 55 MPH, on the level, resetting the computer shows that the MPG runs about 12...starting and stopping accounts for the lower overall average, of course.
Good luck in your search...
