Yes I tow ford escape
I have traveled 9 k and found front tires on towed vehicle wear twice as much as rear tires. Excessive wear. I'm curious if that's standard problem for others.

Last year we were towing a 2 dr Wrangler with a 2011 Lexi 265./ Towed well with no problems. This year we are towing a 2012 Jeep liberty with a 2014 Lexi 300. Again no problems but the liberty is over 1000# heavier than the wrangler so I do feel it more. Penalty is approx. 1 Mpg.

We tow a 2013 Edge with a 2011 283. Just had airbags installed on coach, and immediately felt a difference. When we resume travel next year, may consider a steering stabilizer of some sort, but right now, the airbags helped with rockin' and rollin'. Also installed a Toad Charger on Edge. Mileage equal to what others have shared, but we need a vehicle of some size for side travel, so expected the gas sacrifice.
