Payload is listed as about 1300 lbs. Knock off the 450 lbs. you estimate plus about 100 lbs for a decent hitch and sway control and you're looking at about 750 lbs available for tongue weight (and I'd actually give myself 100-200 lbs of leeway just in case ). So, what you're looking at is something with a LOADED, NOT DRY tongue weight of around 600 lbs. Tongue weight being generally 10-15% of trailer weight would give you a LOADED trailer weight of around anywhere from 4000 - 6000 lbs., most likely in the middle, so lets say 5000lbs. Trailers in that range usually have a payload of approx 750 - 1500 lbs. Lets say you pack light and run one battery and a little water and not a whole lot of other things...maybe only 800 lbs in the trailer. Knock that off your loaded weight and you're looking at a dry weight in the neighborhood of 4200 lbs. MAX.
As you can see, that falls short of the listed 6200 lbs max tow rating because that's based on a more or less empty vehicle. The weight you can put on the Jeep is the limiting factor here.
What I'd do is start looking online at different models and match up dry weights to give you a better idea of what you can expect size wise. Once you've narrowed it down a little, you can get a little more accurate with the numbers and go from there.
