the first 3 are 5th wheels and the last one is pretty large. I believe tow cap of the 3.6 is 5000 pounds

Re: Vacation Trailer Home towing

Should be able to tow a good sized pop-up (up to an including a highwall)...not sure if anyone here has pulled a small travel trailer with the 3.6.

You have the wrong vehicle, if you want to tow these. Your JGC is rated at max 5000 lbs. I would not go over 3500 lbs to 4000 lbs with the engine you have. The first three are fifth wheel trailers and require a pickup that is rigged for that.

Re: Vacation Trailer Home towing

If you are really that dumb, could you please provide your route and dates of travel, so the rest of us can AVOID you? Thanks!

Re: Vacation Trailer Home towing

You would be just fine with any of these. All you need is a WD hitch and you're set.

From some of the other posts on here about people "Loving" the power of the V6, that shouldn't be an issue.

I wouldn't say that. From the looks of these trailers, they look to be about in the 5k-6k weight range. He could try to tow them with the 3.6, but I don't think his engine and trans will be too happy.
