I figure I'll try it out and if my truck has too much trouble going uphill, I'll trade it in for a pickup , wife isnt too happy about that but you know...

Have you called a dealer who has one?

I have an 04 255rs that I picked up a month ago. I don't have a tow vehicle yet but we are looking at Expeditions. I thought the Explorer would be to small.

I just got done adding a TV to the bunk room and a new TV in the kitchen

The GVWR on the sticker for my camper is 5500. I would definitely get something bigger than the explorer to pull it. My F150 pulls it great, minus the gas mileage, but, what are you going to do. I'll be happy to share any info that I can.
