Coast to Coast

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to give a heads up to those interested/curious, I'm a towing a 2005 Ford Focus Sedan on a tow dolly from Beale AFB, CA (Northern California) to Dover, DE. I have a 2007 Edge SE AWD with a class II hitch installed, the last time I weighed our haul it was at 3489.37 pounds. We've packed the Focus with a lot of items that we needed/movers couldn't take with them. We are in Colorado at the moment but from what I've noticed, the previous users stating to be wary of braking properly couldn't have been more right, the extra tow almost controls this vehicle's momentum and you need to definitely slow down way in advance. I've been cruising at the speed limit(70-75 mph) and slowing down to 55 mph if necessary when going up hill. After checking our fluids everything is going well, and I'll update this post again once we've hit our final destination with battle damage if any.

 

We were taking the I-80E but got bored with scenery and decided to move down to I-70, which was an awesome idea considering the view we've had so far.

Sorry I didn't update like I said I would. Life took a swerve to the left and it left me on the corner for a little while. The drive across the States with the Ford Focus in tow went smoothly for the most part. As previously stated, braking needs to thought out well in advance, but other than that amazing drive and the Edge handled it like a champ.

 

Almost lost this bad boy due to a divorce but thankfully the ex saw things my way and agreed to taking the Focus....bwahaha.
