It's that light for a reason...

Find out what other Expy owners are happy pulling. There are tons of expy forums.

We really like the Surveyor SP 260. Queen (short) bed up front, triple bunk beds (each with a window) and the table folds down for a bed. The kitchen slide is not as deep as others but makes a big difference in space. We have 3 kids and it fits our family nicely. Have had it 3 seasons and I still haven't found a layout I like better without going up to a much larger trailer with a rear bunkhouse. The weights work for our Expedition. Good luck.

EL or Shorty? Do you have the tow prep package (I am guessing yes)?

The tongue weight is going to be a tough deal with that trailer, assuming you are going to be hauling a bunch of people at the same time. I think our '13 Expy has a payload rating of 1500lbs. Take 1000 lbs for the hitch, and there is not much left. The tow package rigs are rated a bit a higher, especially if you got the shorty.

We are on our way back to texas from Destin pulling a 26bh Primetime Avenger. Exp el pulls with no problems. Set cruise at 65 and enjoy the ride. For sleeping 6 with this setup you would need to fold down the table and couch. Good luck in your search.
