I am thinking of buying a new KZ Spree 280RLS.
I have a 2011 Expedition with HD tow.
Does anyone have an opinion on towing a 30 ft. TT with a short/regular Expedition using a wd hitch ?
The trailer is within the Expedition's tow rating.
Well ours is only 27.5 feet long, and standard length Exp. We have no sway at all with our 10,000# Equalizer, and it is a pleasure to tow.
Having said that you will have an issue with the Ford rear GAW. We carry very little in the Exp, just wife and I (both not noted to be skinny) and a 60# dog. Our ACTUAL hitch weight is 860#. We are in spec on everything, but it took 7 washers in the head.
So it depends on what you plan to carry in the Exp, you have VERY LITTLE payload left IF loaded like us. Our rear GAW is 4180# with spec of 4250#.
Did I say what a pleasure it was to drive. No sway, steady as a rock, and very comfortable. Of course gas mileage sucks at about 12 mpg, but you expected that.
