Smile Can I tow a camping trailer with my jk?

I won't even pretend I know all about jeeps. I've always wanted one so I bought a 2013 2 door Rubicon. Now I'd like to purchase a travel trailer. I just need a little one. Would I be able to tow it legally? How big can I go? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Definitely, just stick with 2000# or lighter for a 2 door. My friend tows an Aliner which is just under 2k and has taken it over the appalachians.

Don't expect to fly on the road but thats really the case just about whenever you tow a camper trailer.

Do recommend something that folds to keep the height low while towing and avoid the extra wind resistance.
