then if you want to travel with 1/2 your fresh water tank capacity, then 16 gallons x 8.33lbs. = 133lbs. add that to the 3234lbs. and you're at 3367lbs. BEFORE you've added any cargo/food.
but again, your biggest issues will be the frontal area limit, the hitch capacity and the Escape's payload amount, more than the weight of the trailer.
vehicles like the Escape, because of the 350/3500 numbers and the frontal area limits, are really only designed for towing small boats, A-frames and popups or something like an Escape fiberglass "egg" trailer.
