The saying:
If it fits on the ball I can tow it, is a safe way of saying theres an accident waiting to happen.
I agree a 5,000# tow rating min.
Tow ratings need to have some cushion in for different types of terrain and this is assuming the braking system in perfect working condition.

Pulling my new 171 with Toyota Tacoma 4 door auto with the 4 cylinder rated at 3500. May get transmission cooler for it. Runs fine.

Transmission cooler would be a good idea.

Hi all

Purchased my 2014 r Pod 171 last July. I have added a second 20# propane tank and battery, as well as a surge monitor. I pull my r Pod with a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited. The Jeep has a 3" lift with 33" Pro Comp tires. I am a recently retired Probation Officer and am planning to full time for a while while checking out the country. The above picture was taken at Mom's house in Idaho. I carry 2 Honda 2KW generators and like play gold prospector, and photographer. Oh, and by the way, I inherited my Grandfather's Ham radio call sign (W6FPT).

Nice setup! About to pick up my rpod 179 next weekend. I have a 2013 JKU Rubicon and used to tow this pop up with 35's. Just wondering how it does with your setup on 33's? Do you have 3.73 or 4.10 axle ratio? I have 37's that I run during the spring and summer months but I may consider upgrading to 4.88's. I'm gonna give it a try first and see how it goes.

I have 4.10 differentials. I could use higher diffs, but I do fine as is. Thank you for liking my rigs.

I've got a stock 2011 Jeep Unlimited and considering the 171. Also have 2 Honda 2000 watt gens. Was wondering where you were carrying the generators. I was considering a cargo holder on back but hate to add weight to the back end.

I carry my 2k watt generators in the back of my Jeep. I have been thinking of adding a hitch cargo carrier to the back of my r-Pod for the gens, but I am not sure how to reinforce things. Also, I have a Jensen TV I am trying to figure out how to mount to the wall over the sink. So many mods, so little time.
