What are the tow vehicles pictured on the from of the book? I am not good at Ford identification.

Didn't someone in/on this forum mention that 3 sets of wheels are on 34' trailers? hmmmm

I already put the book in the MH, but I belive they were either an Expedition or F250 Crewcab SWR truck.

Expeditions, IMHO

It's a SUV, not a truck.

Definitely not an F250. They have the jog in the front windows at the mirrors.

And yes, that is a 34 footer! More than I think one should haul with an Expidition.

I thought so also but wasn't certain and knew it was in opposition to what I have learned on this forum.

Again, it would seem that the image being given to the public (also Jeep ads ) is not the most thought out....

Could it be an Excursion...the "big brother" to the Expedition?

Not an Excursion

The Excursion is a lot uglier and sits a lot higher. The Excursion is a F250 under the skin and shares the jogged front windows of the F250.

The photos look about like my neighbor's Navigator which is pretty much an upmarket Expidition.

From the Ford website it looks like the Excursion might be okay with a..."7.3L V8 Power Stroke Diesel" engine...

The towing capacities from the website are:
Axle ratio 3.73
GCWR is 20,000
Max. Trailer Weight 11,000

Whaddathink? I'm not by any means an expert at this stuff!

Don't think so

No doubt an Excursion can pull a 34' A/S, but I'm pretty sure that photo isn't an Excursion. I see a lot of them around here.

They are selling so poorly overall that Ford has decided to drop the line. They are huge; the one place they did sell is here in Texas where everything has to be bigger. First time I saw one was in the parking lot at Luby's with brand new paper license on it. The guy had gotten crosswise in a tight parking area and had managed to get himself so wedged in that he was still trying to get out when I walked into the restaurant.

John,

I agree...they are way TOO BIG! We have a bunch of "soccer moms" with them around here...it's really overkill!

I also had heard they were dropping them...but they are still in the 2003 line...

Okay, so here's the picture...on second thought, it doesn't look like an Excursion, probably an Expedition.

Also from the Ford website the Expedition's towing capacities are:

Engine: 5.4L V-8 (4x2)
Axle ratio: 3.73
Max. Trailer Weight: 8,900

From the cover photo credits & directory listing, these folks seem to be very experienced with many rallies & caravans under their belts...

It looks like an Expedition to me. Why are there no WBCCI numbers on the A/S?
