I also tow with a 2000 Excursion, but diesel. It tows my 30" Mobile Scout great. Keep tires pressures up on both X and trailer. Don't forget to check pressures in spares (just in case). Have a great trip.

Welcome to the site. Don't think you'll have any problems. My Son in Law has 2000 with a V-10.

When I'm over at Fort Wilderness, at Disney, I see more Excursions pulling TT's than anything else. They come from all over the country.

Have a good trip down.

Dave

Have you performed front and rear differential service lately? Also check to see if they need differnt weight fluid for towing. Just perfom all normal services, tranny, diffs, power steering, radiator, A/C, and anything else you can think of.
You don't want any of htese things to let you down on the trip. Make sure you air up all the tires including the spare and trailer.
