I can safely say that if you’re starting from a clean slate, don’t do it. We have a 5000# capacity Explorer towing a 3800# loaded 21′ BH. And we also have two kids we bring. While well within capacity and theoretical capacity, the Explorer is at it’s limit. She works really hard, has to stick to 50-55mph tops, and struggles on hills. It also depends on your goals. If it’s for quick weekend trips, then it’d be totally fine. But we took her across the country and it was tough. We vlog a lot about our experiences specifically on this topic if you want to check out our YouTube channel. We’re definitely considering getting a truck, but the Explorer will do fine for a bit longer.
