Ford Flex as Toad?

We did some window shopping yesterday and it looks like we might be taking the plunge to a class C, somewhere along the lines of a Sunseeker 3010DS or Forester 3011DS. Currently I have a Suburban and need to seat 7. Is a Ford Flex a good toad for this type of motor home?

Slowwwwww.....
Make sure you have seven belts in the class C. Some don't.
The Sunseeker and Forrester are very different IIRC.
I sent you a pm with the name of a FR class C rep that is a FRF member.

we pull a 2012 explorer basically the same car with different sheet metal works well previously towed an2010 and 2011 wrangler the ford for us was a better choice after about 12000 moles of toading i am still happy no issues with the car as a daily driver or toad ,i want a new mkz but wife wont let me trade the explorer and i am not giving up my toy (bird) to get it so i guess we wait till she tires of the xplorer

Well, I'd like to down grade from the Suburban. I do need to check into the seat belts. We are also going to look into the bunk bed models.

So instead of the Flex, how about a Honda Pilot? Which is the vehicle I had before my burb, it's my long lost love. I absolutely loved that vehicle.
