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

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. ;)

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!

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.
