Anyone ever towed a U-Haul vehicle trailer with a 2019 Ford Explorer Limited with trailer package. All my computations say it can be done.

What’s your manual say about towing? My 2011 has several pages on it. But I’ve never towed anything.

Depends on how far you are going and weight distribution. I towed a 1,200lb dry weight 5x8 cargo trailer with about 1,100 pounds in it from Olympia WA to Tyler TX.
Gas mileage was horrendous and with the small tank, in Nevada I was filling up every 100 miles. I put the heaviest items over the trailer axles and the car still rode high in the front. I had to redo the load 3 days in. I couldn't find a way to turn of the rear warning sensors so every time I backed up the car would scream at me.
That engine was a star and I had no power issues. I wouldn't do it again that distance. 2018 Platinum.

I tow a travel trailer with my 2017 Ford Explorer Sport (Twin Turbo 3.5V6), fully loaded I'm just over 4,000lbs. I get about 12 mpg when going to from the Phoenix area to Flagstaff which is 5,000+ in elevation change in 2 hours so it's a decent climb. No power issues at all.
