2 MPG doesn't sound too bad for pulling 3990. That will just about the same as what our trailer and bikes will weigh. We also have a Jeep GC but at this time don't anticipate pulling it.
It's really hard for us to see the bikes in a trailer as we have never trailered them is a combined 800,000 miles for the two of us riding our own bikes.
Just retired in June and hope to so more travel and riding in the winter months. Very hard to do that from Denver in the winter. Trade offs are a way of life when you love to ride your motorcycles.
Again, thanks for the good info......
