are you sure it's a 1998 Shamrock? is it a hybrid?
because the first hybrid FR made was the Rockwood Roo and that was in the 1998 model year line.
and i'll bet a 21' TT is going to be way over the 3500lbs. tow max of the Escape.
and a class II hitch isn't enough for a 21' TT!
you'll need a class III/IV receiver and a WDH with sway control.
but you seriously need to rethink the Escape!
who told you it could tow a 21' travel trailer?
it's usually only adequate for popups, with its short wheelbase and 3500lbs. tow max.
is it this one?
the actual weight before you add cargo, will be near 3000lbs.
and the tongue weight alone, will be over the Escape's max.
