New explorer

Hey guys I havn't been on in a while but good to be back.

I got a job towing motorcyles around the Chicagoland area and I'm looking into buying a new vehicle.

I would like to get a loaded explorer NEW for 30k out the door if i can find that deal.

I am pulling a thousand pound trailor with at most a couple bikes. We do motorcycle transport and rescue 24 tow but mostly moving bikes from house to dealership or vice versa.

I am open to ideas but basically i get a bigger cut if i get my own vehicle to pull.

The alleys in the city are kinda tight. Thats why I am leaning on the explorer. I would get another powerstroke but its just to tight in the places that I find myself driving. I drive the company durango lol but its perfect as far as turning the corners in the alleys and such to drop off or pick up in people garages.

I would like to hear your opinions. This vehicle would be my vehicle not just for work but also for everything else which is just golf and grocery getting.

Welcome back, Looie!!!! Glad to see you are still around. The explorer would be perfect for what you are looking to do. It isn't exactly a tow beast, but the low weight you are talking about should be just fine.
