Looks good.[thumbzup]
It does look real good behind the Excursion.
It's not much wider than the Excursion.
My Receiver is at 28 inches so I did't need much rise in the hitch.
The surge and parking brakes worked just fine, the hubs didn't get hot after 25 miles of towing.
I had to air up the tires.
I brought my own Trailer lights and cord set.
Now if I can find a hard top I'll be ready to set it up as an adventure camping trailer.

Don't know how familiar you are with the military lights, so I'll throw this out -

If you have LEDs, they will run just as happily on 12v as on 24v, so you just need to adapt the trailer plug/truck connection.

If they are the type of lights with bulbs, just swap them out for 12v bulbs, and adapt the trailer plug.

Thanks for the info.
I've ordered new bulbs, bullet connectors and a seven pin RV harness.
Plan is to remove the factory harness and store it.

Thanks
