New Kid (Baby Boomer) on the Block here - on my 3rd Jeep but venturing out to undiscovered lands, namely, trailering ? or better said, out on the hunt to purchase a travel trailer (for 2) suitable within the confines of the JKU matrix. I have spent many a late night reading the forums-at-large, websites, etc, and learned a lot (thanks, guys). At times, however, it became overwhelming with conflicting viewpoints, even conflicting weight ratings where found, but I took all that knowledge and sought to create a semi-worksheet to simplify my understanding of it all. What I ended up with was a ?straight to the bones? guide with plug-in numbers leading to final variable weight totals to help me select a travel trailer (or general towing) and all the other considerations which go along with it.
And so I thought I would share, in case it would be of some help to anyone who has also faced this apparently confusing ordeal. If it helps just one person, then I?m happy. As a matter of record, all the listed ratings were given to me directly and straight from Jeep, as I have often found variations from other sources reporting on alleged official Jeep specifications. Basically speaking, this is it, for better or worse.
Anyway, take a look if you wish.
