Great SUV for Towing Our Camper!

ReviewWhen we set out looking for SUV's, we
decided that it had to easily tow our
travel trailer. Our trailer weighs in
around 5,000lbs. We wanted something
that was smooth on the highway, had
room for the kids, and would tow easily
at 14,000 feet. After searching all
the imports, and American vehicles we
settled on the Expedition for it's
comfort and prowness. We are enjoying
it so far, and can't say anything
really bad about it.
Best FeaturesWe enjoy the smooth ride, heated mirrors/seats, and adjustable pedals and seats for my wife. Plenty of get up and go helps us tow much easier.
Worst FeaturesWe're not impressed with the fuel mileage. We average 10 in the city, and about 20 on the highway--much worse when towing; about 12-14mpg. We wish the outside mirrors were a little bigger for towing, and the compass is never correct--even after adjusting it as the manual states.
