Well, from a weight stand point it depends on your personal loading habits..., and TV towing expectations can vary from person to another.
If you want to take out all the guess work, and since you already have the TV and the TT.., IMO take your TV/TT combination to a CAT scale and weigh it under "loaded" conditions. The CAT scale results will tell you where you stand with your TV/TT combination's specified weight limits, and confirm your proper WDH sizing/adjustments.

Assuming that the CAT scale results say everything is good-to-go, you can then decide if your Expedition meets your towing expectations based on how it's presently equipped (engine size, gear ratio, suspension, etc.). Some folks travel mostly on the flats, so hills and mountains aren't an issue......, all depends on where your camping travels take you.
The nice thing about TV Towing Packages the transmission cooler sizing and axle gear ratios are more suited for towing.
Hopefully some more JOF members will chime in on their personal experinces towing with a Expedition as well.
