I finished the wiring for the trailer hitch yesterday, so hooked up the popup to our Escape today and did a test drive. Seemed to handle well. Definitely notice the extra weight accelerating onto the highway, but once upto speed it was fine. Also felt easy to pull at low speeds. Our first trip probably won't be until may or June, lots of work to do on the PUP. We bought this popup in January, found out it was 2000lbs empty, not 1500lbs, which necessitated buying a new (to us) vehicle for towing, hence the escape.
