I would talk to an RV dealer and make sure the it can be done. Most sport tracs are switch activated 4wd, not manual shift.

No. Max speed 35mph max distance 50 miles. But they sell a kit, the dealer can install to enable you to flat-tow. From owners manual http://www.fordservicecontent.com/Ford_Content/catalog/owner_guides/08p27og1e.pdf
