an expedition is a very large suv not like the smaller ones that most are referring to

I have yet to have a problem and the well trained mechanic who installed the towing package for me said that it wouldn't be an issue. It has a rating for a reason. Do what you feel comfortable with. We live in a hilly area and it does great. You don't have to own a truck to pull.

My trailer only weighs 2500 lbs, I only haul my horse, and I'm extremely glad I went with a 3/4 ton truck to do it. I've already had several times where breaking was paramount. Had I had less truck, I think the trailer would have pushed me right into the intersection. I personally would not haul with an SUV. The wheel base more than anything concerns me. Too short and you're asking for a swaying trailer.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.
