Hi Steven, I don't have any first hand experience, as we won't pick up our 21 until April. We plan to pull it with a 2015 Ford Explorer V6 w/Tow package and a 5000 capacity. I know we will be pushing the limits on our rating and expect to be a little underpowered at times, but for the most part, I expect to do fine. The quality of the Escape build, it's weight, ease of towing, and the ability to utilize our primary vehicle were the features that drew us to Escape. I think you'll be fine with your Traverse.
