There is a 2010 F150 crew cab with the 5.4 liter and a tow package in the driveway, should be good for the hybrid.

I have a X17Z and tow it with an 04 Explorer with the V8 and the tow package. I also towed a Coleman PU with the same vehicle. There is a huge difference in the wind resistance having the hybrid trailer. I have no sway issues with the 17Z. My mileage is similar to mtn_bikers. I would get the trailer first. I don't know how often you will tow, but your Explorer will work. If you don't like the TV/Trailer combination then you can get a new TV. Good luck!

get the TV 1st as once you have the TT you'll want one bigger.
