Default looking at a 2701 classic a garage kept one owner

My TV is a 2000 Explorer 2WD 5.0L 6920 lb tow cap. HILO price $8K. Can I safely tow this unit? Also a 2696 for $4K. Can I tow this also? The 2701 looks like NEW.

If you have the tow package you would probably be at the limit. I have a 04 explorer and I it is rated just over 4k pound

My 2000 Explorer is on a truck frame and the 2002 & newer are unibody. I do intend to used a WDH. I can't afford a Hensley though.

As far as tow weights go, you're right at the limit, if the trailer is at max gross weight (around 6500 I think). Unloaded weigh is probably under 5000. The tongue weight could be 700-800#. What does that do to your TV's weight?

They all usually look good on the outside, but can have a lot of internal water damage.
