As long as the explorers towing capacity can handle it, yes! I pull my 2015 16bhs with a Jeep wrangler unlimited with a 3500# towing capacity. I use a Harbor Freight equalizer hitch and sway bar. Pulls great and even handled a recent blow out like a champ!
We are 4 with me, DW and two DD ages 10 & 7. And a 25# dog. We love it for weekends and up to 5 day trips. Works great for us. I even let my friend with 4 kids use it and they like it.
Regarding the blow out, the tires on mine are only a C load rating which puts the tire capacity at 3590# which is really close to the trailer max. If I were buying a new one, I'd make it a "walk away" negotiating item that they put D rated tires on it (4100# capacity for the pair). I haggled them down to just under $11k for mine. Good luck
