Support!!!!!

Well, after what I took to be a major 'demure' from a MOD no less, I felt a bit bent about what I had said, not cowed mind you, but bent. But then I was right, right???!!?

YOU BETCHA!!!!!!

There came the crescendo of voices that proved my point far more forcefully than I was able to deliver during the 1st crack it. Nice to know that someone has my back, when there is safety and potential disaster looking. Standing TALL again....

Now that the chorus of voices 'of reason' seem to have won the day, there seems to be a very appropriate rethinking of the TV, as it seems the AS is what they want. Bravo!

It's sop nice when things work out for the best of everyone involved. Doesn't happen that often, so noting when it does, is likely the only 'pat on the back' you are going to get.... Great job with telling that dude the Ranger was outmatched, Axel. Why thanks, Axel.

Keep posting as your TV and TT combo come together and tell us the stories about it - aling with LOTS of photos!!!!!!

Enjoy that camping experinence!!!!!!! Don't forget film.....

See you when you get back.....

Axel

Axel - no slam intended. I actually agree that a ranger doesn't have the stuff - but when you visit fords towing section online, you find some higher tow capacities...

I have had my own miserable experience with an underpowered tow. The cool thing about about a thread like this the is the breadth of opinion and hopefully the thread starter will read and research before buying.

I attempted to tow a Globetrotter with a Ranger, I now drive a F-150 Supercrew.

Thanks Jim

What I went with....

Sold my 3.0L Ranger and purchased a 2005 Toyota Tundara w/ 4.7L V-8 and then picked up my Argosy Minuet 6.0.

WOW- what a difference. I never even felt as if I was straining anything.....the ride was increadable. Very happy w/ the Tundra.

Cool, we're glad we could help. And if you want to get a larger trailer in the future, you will have a truck capable of towing it.
