Excursion pulls camper like a breeze

2005 Ford Excursion XLS Rwd 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl Turbodiesel 5A)
I have the 4 wheel drive diesel Limited Excursion. It pulls my 35' travel trailer with no problems at all. The gas mileage with the diesel engine is about 15-17 city and 17-21 highway. I actually get better mileage than I did with the gas Chevy Suburban I traded in on it.
Believe it or not, this vehicle fits in an average size garage, however the radio antenna would scrape the door molding pulling in and out of the garage. I had to get a small whip antenna to replace it. You would think a $50,000 vehicle would come with an electric antenna that goes up and down!
