I'm trying not to think about what the gas mileage is going to be like. At least if it's consistently bad, there won't be any surprises.
I found another thread on here and a post on the FB Facebook page saying the same thing about simply taking advantage of the capacity already built into the Ford chassis.
Now I have to figure out my weights. Looks like the dry weight of the 2700DS is 11260#. I think my trailer with car is right around 7500 so that leaves my wife around 3000# of stuff from the house to take on a trip. You should see this woman pack!
Thanks for the help and information everyone.
