First time we thought it was just a goofy fluke due to running on scored asphalt along the edge and figured we got to close to the edge and the tow slipped off and came up with a bounce. Today we came off the main road, down a slight rolled edge as we made a slow turn onto the side road. We heard what sounded like a flat tire thumping. DH looked at the rear view monitor and he said that he could see the front of the toad bouncing back and forth. Still checked the tires. All fine. Unhooked and I drove it to the park to check the steering. It handled fine.
If you tow an Equinox, have you experienced this type of behavior?
This seems reminiscent of what I have read that the little smart cars did when they were towed 4 down. Thanks!

Can you share a little about the Escape that you towed, model fwd or 4wd, 4cyl. or 6cyl. Was it easy to set up?
