I always suggest a Class III, Trailer Hitch For A 2013 Ford Escape, 2 inch hitch when accessible since there are several more accessory choices, fewer constraints on what you could carry, not to mention the greater capacity (restricted from the tow vehicle capacity or hitch capacity, whichever is lower). I’ve connected a video. If you anticipate doing a while I also advocate etrailer ball bracket kit # 989900. It includes a hitch pin with clip and chunks, two ball mounts, and a storage bag. For trailer wiring # 118566 can be used by you. I’ve connected a movie showing a wiring installation.
