Yes i have hauled trailers and used to pull our old 27' all over Mich with a 1/2 ton ext cab..with 6 of us.
I am just looking at $10k or less just to get us until the followin . Summer when we can buy a much more expensive tow vehicle , i have been looking and seen a few vehicles but this expedition is extremel clean and i can buy it cheap from a good friend ( they neber towed with it)
I think the Expedition will work okay for you with weight distribution hitch and a good brake controller.
If it were me with a $10k budget for something to tow the trailer and up to 6 people I would be looking for a 3/4 ton suburban or an expedition. I would be looking for either equipped with the 8.1 or v10 to not be a dog. Unless you are towing very often I don't think a diesel would be worth it.
