Before I dive into this, I wanted to let you guys know have to do this out of neccessity and not for leisure. My job requires me to move to a new location for the next 4 years and I need to buy a trailer to live in that I can tow safely with my current vehicle (buying another will hurt financially along with new trailer). OK here it goes: 2006 Jeep Liberty 3.7L RWD Curb Weight - 3825lbs GVWR - 5350lbs Max Trailer Wt (GTW) - 5000lbs (with weight distributing hitch) max trailer/load/jeep combined weight (GCWR) - 9850lbs - I am looking at the feather lite, ultra lite, well just "lite" trailers becaise I am weight limited. I need to tow it one time 8 hours away, plan to do it at night (no traffic), 55MPH, will not travel in inclament weather, mostly flat travel (N. Texas to Louisianna), already have factory transmission cooler. - Can I max it out safely at 5000lbs? - Will the length matter? - Should I weigh down Jeep to counter trailer weight (within limits of course) Thanks for any help in advance I really do appreciate it. I have no choice in doing this (military) but wanted to get the most bang for the buck while doing it legal and safe!
