I once had a Wrangler and it had a 2000lb towing cap IIRC. Maybe they've changed, but I doubt it.

Great vehicle for boondocking with a tent when I was newly married, though.

I think the new 4 door Wranglers properly equiped have a maximum tow capacity of 3500 lbs. I would not want to tow with the 2 door models, as they are really short wheelbases (95") . The 4 door is 116", so that might be able to tow a smaller camper. I don't think there is a towing option that includes a wiring harness or auxiliary transmission cooler for the automatics.

I looked into Wranglers a couple of years ago to tow my Trailmanor.......didn't think it was the best fit.

The Flagstaff Micro Lite XLTs all appear to be 18' trailers with a GVW of 3,500 to 3,800 pounds. I would think that you could entertain towing that trailer successfully if you aren't going to far (or too fast). Keep in mind that a Wrangler type of vehicle might be a bit less stable platform than average because of height, width, length characteristics. It certainly wouldn't be among my choices for towing but, since you already have it, the Micro Lite XLT might be doable. Make sure to check your manufacturer recommendations and limitations on your vehicle.

Some of the smaller R-Pods might be a good fit.
